What Water Extraction Equipment Does SERVPRO Use for Flood Damage in Dallas?
Truck-Mounted Pumps Extract Water from Flood Damaged Dallas Homes
When your home in Dallas or the surrounding area falls victim to flooding, your first concern after making sure everyone is safe is getting your home back into a livable condition. You need someone who can get all of the work done quickly and competently. Anything less can leave aspects of your home in a less-than-acceptable state, and possibly put your family at risk of unwanted health effects.
Why SERVPRO takes the mitigation of flooded homes in Dallas so seriously is that flood extraction teams must know how to use the equipment and in the order in which they must carry out the work. Extracting floodwater from your property is a crucial step toward complete mitigation and restoration. Without it, nothing else can happen, and your family continues needing substitute lodging.
SERVPRO flood extraction technicians begin with our Green Fleet's truck-mounted pump to remove standing water. Your flooded home can still contain several inches of water upon your initial inspection. Getting this removed by pumping it out instead of allowing it to drain off by itself can save a significant portion of time and help make the rest of our mitigation work more effective.
When SERVPRO works on a flooded home, our goal is to remove all traces of floodwater from the property and get things prepared for successful restoration. Our work during flood extraction jobs includes the removal of interior structures that became destroyed during prolonged contact with water. Walls made of drywall and paneling, as well as many older types of stucco, carpeting and its padding – these all require removal from the property followed by the installation of replacement materials.
We eliminate all the dampness flooding caused as part of our flood extraction work, making the interior of your home safe for these new materials. Otherwise, water damage and microbial infestation could occur rather quickly. Elimination of these materials also removes a sizable percentage of unwanted moisture from the property.
To dry a home after a flooding event, we use highly efficient air movers. These change the air several times in a short period and quickly draw moisture out of damp, but as-of-yet undamaged, materials, effectively preventing their destruction. SERVPRO specialists also use air scrubbers to minimize dust, pollen, and microbes in the air. Removing these can make the air healthier to breathe, both while we work and for when your family returns home upon completion of mitigation and restoration efforts.
