The equipment for Efficient Water Removal for Lower Providence Residents

A homeowner can come home after a weekend away to find their home flooded in ankle deep water. These situations are caused by a myriad of differences that may be no fault of your own. A weekend of heavy rainfall, for example, or an aging water pipe finally giving out. As water levels rise, they put increasing pressure on floors, ceilings, and infrastructure. Over time that pressure tells, causing permanent damages and requiring expensive reconstruction.

Residents can reach out to us for emergency water removal in Lower Providence. SERVPRO has access to national resources and can mobilize the necessary equipment efficiently. Our emergency out of hours service means we can arrange for an on-call technician to be sent to your property depending on the scale and severity of your situation. However, all residents have access to our twenty four hour phone line in times of need.

Excessive waterlogging and rising standing water levels are industrial problems that require industrial scale equipment. One of the prime pieces of equipment SERVPRO mobilize in this type of situation is extractors. These machinery use three aspects- a heating element, vacuum element, and pump- to remove excess quantities of water. Portable units allow access to restricted areas and can carry up to twelve gallons of water before needing emptying. Truck-mounted extractors have storage tanks over one hundred gallons.

These equipment are SERVPRO technicians first offensive against waterlogging. Since the design of extractors is geared toward residential or office water removal and restoration, they are also effective at cleaning carpets or upholstery- which is up to 50% weaker when wet. Some robust carpets benefit from heavier extractors, which help to squeeze the moisture out of them during the removal process. Although extractors are the first port of call, where there are significant amounts of standing water, above two inches, submersible gas pumps can be more efficient- pumping out limitless amounts of water from a property into a nearby open sewer point.

The impact of flooding or waterlogging goes beyond the remit of DIY property damages, contact SERVPRO of Norristown at (610) 272-8520.
