Water damage can wreak havoc on homes and commercial properties, causing immense destruction and financial strain if not handled promptly and effectively. When faced with water damage restoration, one crucial aspect is the SERVPRO® specialized water extraction equipment. In this guide, we'll delve into various types of water extraction equipment and their applications in restoration projects.

Portable & Truck Mounted Extractors

 These extractors are pivotal in swiftly removing standing water and moisture from saturated materials such as carpets. Portable extractors, resembling tall shopping carts, offer maneuverability, making them ideal for residential and commercial projects. On the other hand, truck-mounted extractors, integrated into service vehicles, boast high power and are suitable for large-scale commercial jobs.

High-Flow Trash Pumps

Particularly valuable during storm or flood-related scenarios, high-flow trash pumps excel in extracting water laden with debris that could obstruct other extraction methods. Their high flow rate makes them indispensable for removing significant volumes of water, especially in crawl spaces and basements.

Submersible Pumps

Commonly known as sump pumps, these devices efficiently remove water, albeit not as rapidly as high-flow trash pumps. Equipped with automatic on-off float features, they are perfect for areas prone to flooding, such as basements, offering continuous water extraction for both residential and commercial settings.

Floor Drying Systems

Specifically designed for hardwood floors, floor drying systems utilize mats and vacuum hoses to extract trapped moisture swiftly. They play a crucial role in salvaging water-damaged hardwood floors, thereby minimizing damage in commercial and residential projects.

Cavity Drying Equipment

When water becomes trapped within wall or floor cavities, cavity drying equipment proves invaluable. By circulating warm, dry air through drilled holes, these units facilitate drying with minimal damage to building materials, making them essential in both residential and commercial settings.
