Water Mitigation of Waterbury Homes Happens Fast with SERVPRO
SERVPRO Uses the Latest Technology for Water Mitigation of Waterbury Homes
The most immediate challenge for SERVPRO restorers during the water mitigation of your Waterbury home after a storm is the accumulated water. Stormwater is often unsanitary and contains a lot of debris and suspended material. If not removed promptly from your property, the accumulated water can keep attacking the structural components and become a breeding ground for microbial contamination.
SERVPRO techs use some of the industry-leading water extractors to pump out stormwater during water mitigation of your Waterbury home. The goal is to remove all the standing water from your property as quickly as possible before beginning the drying process.
Types of Extractors and Pumps we Use for Flood Restoration
SERVPRO restorers use different extraction equipment to remove the standing water from your property. However, the types of pump used depend on several factors, including-
- The volume of water to be removed
- The horizontal distance through which water needs to be pumped
- The vertical distance through which water needs to be pumped
If a large amount of sediment or solids are present, SERVPRO techs use a piece of equipment called a Self-priming trash pump. The pump is designed to provide a strong suction force and allows solids as large as 3” to pass through, making them ideal for removing stormwater laden with sand or mud.
However, when a significant lift is required, such as removing water from a basement, SERVPRO techs use high-pressure or submersible electric pumps.
Unlike most other pumps that extract water from your property, the diaphragm pump fluids down to near-zero water depth. Diaphragm pumps can handle air sucked in along with the fluid and do not lose their prime during operation.
