Our first experience with E-TES was a Wednesday morning at 6:30 am. Their first floor toilet supply line broke. The foyer and two rooms off each side were soaked, not including the finished lower level. The lower level was 1300 square feet and 80% was affected. The ceiling was dripping wet on to the hard wood floors. We had our hands full to say the least.
In the main level, we started by extracting the water out of the carpet by using the FlashXtractor. That was amazing in itself. Setting up E-TES was our next step; using the Infrared camera, we could see that E-TES was not only drying the carpet and pad, but the baseboard, drywall and sill plates as well.
In the lower lever, we extracted the water from the surface and subsurface of the floor and used an infrared camera and moisture readings to see where our E-TES boxes would be the most effective. We placed air movers to evacuate the moist air and dehumidifiers to assist with the drying process.
We couldn't believe that it actually does everything they say it can do. The rooms on the main lever were dry in less than 8 hours, and the house was dry in less than 48 hours! The homeowner was thrilled at how fast it was dry and that they did not have to evacuate their home.
With the purchase of E-TES we believe that we can take water mitigations to new levels. We were very hesitant in purchasing E-TES, but after our first experience, I know that it is a great investment and will pay for itself.
