Water Removal Solutions for Flooding in Coolidge Homes
Why you want SERVPRO’s Help with Water Removal after a Flood
While the severity and concentrations of damages might change from one Coolidge home to another, one of the defining traits of most flood losses is a need for water removal. Choosing the right tool for this task is one of the many obstacles that our SERVPRO team faces as we respond to the emergency. Our decision in which tool might be best for this task depends on multiple factors, including:
- Depth of the water in the flooded areas
- Present hazards that might exist
- Solids and debris in the standing water
- The volume of water throughout the house
Knowing the best machine for addressing flood damage to Coolidge homes can save our customers time and money on the restoration work their property needs. We strive to provide a fast response to these emergencies, ensuring that conditions do not worsen dramatically before we can get pooling water under control with extraction equipment and techniques. Often water removal comes down to one of three primary extractors in our inventory or fleet.
Electric Submersible Pumps
These are among the most versatile water removal tools in our arsenal because they can potentially have long discharge lines. These powerful units do not draw excessive amounts of electricity, making them ideal for recovery efforts where the power has gotten severed. These tools are not ideal for natural flooding scenarios where debris might exist, however.
Gas-Powered or Engine-Driven Pumps
Many of the fuel-driven pumps in our inventory have larger (4” or greater) intake and discharge hoses, making them better suited to water removal where debris and solids might exist. With natural flooding, sediment and solids likely get carried in with the water, so you need a solution that can address the water and what is in it simultaneously.
Wet Vacuums and Wands
When water depth gets below two inches in the affected area, submersible pumps of every kind cease to be effective. Wet vacuums are the staple of low depth water removal, as our vacuums can have numerous attachments that can help remove water from low-permeance flooring and carpeting as well.
No matter how severe water losses might be after a flood, you can count on our SERVPRO of Casa Grande for effective water removal solutions. Give us a call today at (520) 421-1894.
