How Long Does it Take to Pump Flood Water Out?

SERVPRO Uses Advanced Equipment and Methods to Extract Flood Waters from your Santa Maria Home.

Standing water in the home, which is commonly associated with flood events, can cause significant harm. An exceptional amount of stress and pressure is exerted upon a building's structure by water weight. Furthermore, the migration of water into cavities or beneath floorboards can complicate the drying process. 

The primary approach to flood water extraction for your Santa Maria home is to assess the type of water content and contamination levels. SERVPRO technicians rely on many kinds of extraction tools dependent on the unique conditions of the flooded property. Sometimes larger, truck-mounted extractors are the most efficient. At other times, a restricted access space may necessitate portable extractors. 

  • Portable extractors typically have a five to twelve-gallon storage tank with 140 inches of water lift capacity.
  • Truck Mounted Extractors can have storage tanks over one hundred gallons with a lift capacity of at least 185.71 inches.
  • Both extractors can be fitted with extraction tools such as extraction wands or additional weighting.
