Water Removal Steps After Flooding

Water can be one of the most threatening concerns in the house after flooding. This rush of water and debris can coat several areas of the property, requiring direct and focused efforts to extract and dry. Removing this water requires several tools from our inventory capable of managing high volumes of liquid over a short period.

Effective water removal for Dunkirk homes after flooding relies most directly on the fast response of our SERVPRO team. With the 24/7 availability of our experienced and certified professionals, we can arrive fast to help with the mitigation and emergency services necessary to protect your property. These efforts might include:

  • Extraction
  • Drying
  • Decontamination
  • Content Cleaning

Removing the Present Floodwater

Floodwater is often most threatening to your home when it is pooling in certain rooms of the house. Several inches or feet of standing water can destroy exposed materials and contents, making extraction one of the keys to effective mitigation. Thorough cleaning is only possible by eliminating surface water concerns with debris-capable pumps and vacuums.

We will also need to remove most of the water from installations like carpet and padding, even if these materials are getting removed. With the threat of contamination, we must remove many flooring materials. Removing water ensures this process is faster and less laborious.

Effective Drying Solutions

Water removal also refers to any of our SERVPRO team's actions to eliminate moisture trapped in wet materials. While some porous elements must be cut out and removed from the structure, adjacent rooms might be contending with excessive moisture that impacts materials indirectly. Air movers and dehumidifiers work together to complete needed water removal in damp rooms in the house.

Storms can devastate Dunkirk area homes, introducing devastating floodwater and contaminants to your property. As leading restoration professionals, we have effective water removal and cleanup strategies to get life back to normal. Call SERVPRO of Dunkirk, Fredonia for help at (716) 952-6401.
