When water and moisture start invading your home, and you find water where it doesn’t belong, it is important to immediately remove it. The following is a list of four ways to perform a complete and thorough water extraction.
1. Water Extraction – Sump Pump
A sump pump is a submersible pump that can be fed into a body of water in your home. It can be utilized to pump the water out and into a drain or another preferred location. It is always a good idea to have a battery operated backup pump in addition to the main pump. The battery operated pump will continue pumping after the power goes out as it frequently does during storms.
2. Water Extraction – Drain
A good old fashion drain, if you’re noticing an area of your home that has unwanted water pooling around, consider putting a drain in the deepest part of the pooling area. If you are thinking “why didn’t I think of that, it seems so simple,” well, sometimes the simplest solutions are often overlooked.
3. Moisture Removal – Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier or calcium chloride crystals are other ways to remove unwanted water and moisture from the air in your home. Calcium chloride crystals, draw moisture from the air and trap them in whatever container the calcium chloride crystals are being housed in. Often times these products are marketed with a deodorizing feature of baking soda or something similar. A dehumidifier does the same thing as calcium chloride crystals but with an electronic motor and collects the water in an internal tank.
4. Moisture Removal – Air Movers
Last but not least you can use a big and powerful fan called an air mover. These air movers are a commercial piece of equipment that circulates the air in a room so rapidly that the natural drying process that occurs as air moves over an area, also known as air drying, occurs at a rate of rapid speed.
