We Discuss Choosing the Right Extractor for Flooding in Berkeley Heights

WHITE SOFA FLOATING IN A FLOODED ROOM Berkeley Properties benefit from a swift groundwater extraction by SERVPRO. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Floodwater Removal Is Crucial to Storm Damage Mitigation

One of the advantages of selecting professional restoration and remediation services after flooding in your Berkeley Heights home is an extensive inventory of industry-leading equipment. A point of pride for our growing professional restoration team is the equipment, tools, and technology made available to our skilled technicians. After a flood, the suitable extractor can be the difference between efficient recovery and wasted time and money.

There are many factors in choosing the appropriate extraction equipment to address Berkeley Height's flood damage. Between pumps and extractors, the more efficiently that standing water can get removed from the structure, the less time our professionals must later spend removing the remaining moisture with our high-velocity air movers and dehumidification units. Because there are so many potential extraction tools available to our SERVPRO technicians, we follow the criteria to determine which device best suits the needs of your household.

Position of the Flooded Area

There are many instances where the decision of the extractor used correlates exclusively to the position of the damaged area. In two-story houses, for example, lead hoses from stationary extractors might be more challenging to manage when portable, and lightweight machines are more flexible.

Severity (Depth) of the Damage

Another consideration that our SERVPRO team must make when assessing the need for extraction equipment is how severe the damage is. The standing water depth can help determine which of the equipment in our inventory is necessary, from truck-mount extractors to light wands better suited for depths under two inches for surfaces like carpets.

Available Power

The demands of the extraction equipment cannot always get met by the damaged home that our professionals work to restore. Portable extractors are versatile tools, but they require stable electricity – which can be challenging after widespread community flooding. We have trailered and portable generators to provide temporary power or extraction tools that operate off fuel, such as our truck-mount pumps and self-priming trash pumps.

No matter what your home needs after a flood loss, you can trust our extensive inventory of recovery tools to meet the demand. Give our SERVPRO of Western Union County team a call whenever you need us at (908) 791-9177.
