What Extraction Methods Work Best After a Flood?

Flooding in your Milton home can leave several inches or feet of standing water throughout the property that must get removed to restore the house.

With natural flooding especially, Milton homes can experience a substantial volume of water to contend with when restoration begins. Most property owners allow this recovery process to get handled by competent professionals like our SERVPRO team. The faster that experienced technicians like ours can get started on efforts like mitigation, the easier the overall restoration of your property will become. With situations like flooding, mitigation hinges on the removal of standing water and surface damage.

Addressing flood damage in Milton homes often begins with how effectively surface water can get removed. We have multiple tools and devices that can work to accomplish this objective. An extensive inventory of recovery tools is available to our technicians responding to your water emergency. The choice in extractors used for these circumstances varies based on the severity of the situation, the materials affected, the placement of the damage, and whether solids might be present in the standing water. Many of the conventional extraction tools that we use in these regards are:

  • Truck-Mount Extractors
  • Gas-Powered Trash Pumps
  • Electric Submersible Pumps
  • Wet Vacuums/Light Wands
  • Weighted Extractors
  • Carpet Wands

How Does Water Get Removed from Flooring?

Because surface water pools on flooring like carpets and hardwood, these materials can become immediately damaged through absorption and overexposure. Depending on contamination threats, it can be possible to recover saturated flooring materials with the appropriate water removal and drying techniques. Between technologies like carpet wands and floor drying mats, we can control the rate of removal for moisture and these materials to ensure that flooring does not become overly dried in the process.

Flooding can be a widespread threat to your home. Our SERVPRO of Sullivan and South Ulster Counties team can help with a fast and experienced response. Give us a call today at (845) 791-7647.
