East Brunswick SERVPRO Extraction Tools Mitigate Flood Damage and Safely Eliminate Standing Water

While many flood damage scenarios do not leave behind standing water, some do. The presence of standing water can render an East Brunswick residence less safe to travel through to collect essential belongings or turn off utilities in the event of a disaster.

SERVPRO’s rapid-response flood damage crew in East Brunswick is trained to handle standing black water, debris, and structural damages related to floods. This process adheres to Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) best practices and keeps homeowners safe and away from contaminants in the event of a flood.

Floodwater Extraction Tools Operated by SERVPRO Professionals

Standing water extraction tools vary based on the depth and volume of present floodwaters. While wet vacuums, mops, and portable extractors are typically sufficient for moisture exposure, more heavy-duty water removal equipment can include:

  • Truck-mounted extractors feature heating, pumping, and vacuuming systems, much like a portable unit. However, these units are attached to a truck with a tank that is at least 60 gallons for storing and removing water safely. These extractors have their own power sources and are more powerful than their portable counterparts
  • Submersible sump pumps, which are typically gas-powered and ideal for spaces with over two inches of standing water without solid debris present

However, extraction is just one of many steps that trained restoration professionals can take toward restoring a flood-damaged property. Debris removal, odor control, and sanitation with EPA-registered biocides are among the many essential tasks SERVPRO performs to restore homes to a pre-disaster state.
