Flood Extraction Equipment to the Rescue at Your Oceanside Home
In just a matter of hours, flooding from severe storms or a substantial plumbing or appliance disaster can overtake your Oceanside home. Water damage demands a speedy solution. Conventional building materials like drywall and insulation absorb liquids fast, swelling and crumbling. Other materials like tile or cinder block can withstand a short immersion, but the likelihood of water migration through cracks or unsealed grout or mortar joints is high. Even a trace of moisture unaddressed can set the stage for mold damage.
Welcome the Calvary
When our team pulls up at your home in Oceanside, flood extraction is the priority. Although no two jobs present precisely the same way, we prepare for all contingencies, stocking our service vehicles with top of the line flood water removal equipment. The category and depth of the water inform the choice our technicians make on the initial intervention. We avoid delays in response because of our comprehensive inventory.
Best water removal industry practice dictates the use of submersible pumps when water is deeper than two inches. Our technicians ensure that the pumps selected have adequate lift capability and volume capacity. When pumps are operating, the wastewater should go directly into a treated sewer, typically a toilet. SERVPRO crews vary from this practice only when a septic system is involved or if the flood fluids contain solid debris which could clog the equipment. If mud or sewer backups contaminate the flood water with solids, the team uses shovels and rakes to remove them, checking on local hazardous waste rules for disposal. Septic system complications might require a subcontract with a septic tank company.
Truck Mounted and Portable Extractors
As the water recedes, SERVPRO breaks out wanded extractors suited to the circumstances. Where the flood damaged waters are in confined spaces or higher stories of a multi-family dwelling, portable extractors are invaluable for accessing the fluids. When we face large quantities of water, truck mounted extractors have the necessary power and capacity to manage the task. The extractors do double duty when carpeting and upholstery show flood damage. If we feel confident these items can be sanitized, wanded extractors pull water out, both mitigating or halting the spread and remediating the harm.
When your emergency involves flood water extraction, SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside has the equipment to answer the challenge on board. Call us at (516) 536-1801 to schedule rapid flood water control and removal.
