SERVPRO Handles Extraction, Storage, and Transfer of Water From Inundated Areas of Your Home

When someone mentions water removal, you may visualize a process involving wiping off stagnant water from floors or other surfaces. However, once water spills, it can exist in different states apart from accumulating on surfaces, so removal requires a comprehensive approach to restore preloss conditions at your Bristol home.

Apart from taking care of extraction during water removal from your Bristol home, it would be best if you also had a sound plan for managing humidity and drying the water absorbed by various materials. Semi-porous materials such as solid wood present the main challenge for the restoration process since it takes longer for them to release the trapped water. SERVPRO can help you manage the removal better by providing advanced technical skills and state-of-the-art equipment.

Some of the most useful resources when extracting water from a property include:

  • Availability of powerful equipment
  • Expertise to perform controlled demolitions
  • Availability of water storage 

The power of water removal equipment is gauged in many ways, including the extraction speed and vacuum lift capacity. The mode of power for such equipment also matters since electricity may be off after water intrusion. SERVPRO believes in matching the equipment to the task. Therefore, we have a wide array of extraction equipment, including portable, submersible, and truck-mounted extractors.

When removing water, it might not be possible to dispose of it immediately. For instance, in case of leaks in sections of the house far from a bathroom, the extracted water needs to be collected and transferred to the disposal point. In other cases, the water may contain harmful substances, and therefore disposing it into the sewer system may not be appropriate. SERVPRO uses portable extractors with storage tanks ranging from 5 gallons to 12 gallons. In case of high water volumes, we use large wheeled trash cans as water receptacles.

SERVPRO of Bristol takes care of all issues that arise during water removal addressing water intrusion, "Like it never even happened." Call us at (860) 582-3330.
