What Issues Are Addressed During Water Removal Planning?

SERVPRO professionals understand  the importance of being organized and establishing a plan for flood damage remediation in Stockton. The plan starts with setting up a safe staging area, followed by an explanation of the procedures to remove standing water that may be contaminated. Steps are also taken to make sure contaminants do not spread to other parts of the structure.

How is Water Removal Typically Accomplished?

Extraction and evaporation are the two major ways to remove water after flood damage. Standing water is normally removed using a submersible pump. Precautions are taken to protect foundations and walls if there is basement flooding, and conditions are carefully observed as the water is pumped out.

What About Water in the Carpets and Flooring?

SERVPRO professionals typically use truck-mounted or portable extractors to remove excess water from carpets and flooring. Carpet wands are an effective tool, and for hard surfaces a squeegee extractor may be used.

What Happens to the Water After Removal?

Water is always removed in accordance with the appropriate laws and regulations, typically by disposing of it in the sanitary sewer system or at an appropriately licensed disposal facility. Disinfectant procedures are performed if necessary, and damaged materials are safely removed as well.
