SERVPRO Chooses The Appropriate Water Removal Method Your Aberdeen Home Needs

During the length of homeownership, you may face challenges that affect your possessions as well as the infrastructure of the home itself. Wetrooms such as bathrooms or kitchens tend to be vulnerable to water incidents since they have a regular flow of moisture. A weak pipe, joint or fitting can quickly result in large quantities of water entering your property. Homeowners tend to use professional companies to remove these bodies of water because they lack the necessary equipment to perform the job themselves. 

You can contact our Water Removal Specialists here in Aberdeen by contacting us on the phone. Our operators work round-the-clock to ensure that residents of the community can always get the help they need. Generally, high volumes of water in the home need extraction equipment or pumping equipment to transport it from home into a nearby sewer point or storage tank. The factors that SERVPRO consider when deciding on extractors or pumps include how much standing water there is, measuring in inches, as well as the size and distance of the structure itself- a hallway, for example, may benefit from a different method to a living room. 

Extraction is essential to fast-acting restoration. Evaporation is a typically slow process that can be ineffective with large bodies of water. Opening windows immediately when faced with a large body of standing water is a practical step for homeowners to take. Still, it is rarely a decisive action in the overall restoration. Extraction units vary from light wands that can vacuum in water to weighted extraction tools, which can be useful on thicker rugs. In situations where there is an ample space requiring restoration, SERVPRO may use truck-mounts with larger storage tanks of over one hundred gallons. 

If a room is tiled like a kitchen or bathroom, and there is a large amount of standing water, SERVPRO technicians may decide that pumping is more effective than extraction. Depending on the location of the room, we may use electric submersible pumps that are capable of pumping 100 to 18,000 gallons of moisture per hour. Subterranean levels may benefit from high-pressure pumping equipment, which has the requisite power to move water upwards and out of a cellar or basement. 

Practical restoration is available to the community via our twenty-four-hour emergency line. Contact SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel at (732) 290-3170 now.
