Deep Extraction Tools for Multi-Level Water Removal in Dover Residences

Residential water emergencies can affect multiple levels of the home and be a challenge for homeowners looking to carry out restoration themselves. For professional restorers, residential properties requiring multi-level water extraction can be limiting in terms of equipment. We may also have to consider other factors such as noise levels of equipment and how easy it is to access areas of the home. There are many variables which is why we offer a multi-faceted, flexible approach to your water emergency.

One of the core components of water removal in your Dover residence is extraction. Extraction tools are much more efficient than air-moving or dehumidification equipment- which is usually reserved for deeper structural or contents drying. Extractors use a powerful centrifugal vacuum in combination with heating elements. Portable units are useful in the restoration of residential properties because they can be taken on multiple levels without issues of hose-length or noise getting in the way.

SERVPRO technicians can use deep extraction tools when dealing with carpets in multi-story properties. These tools are heavy and use their weight to squeeze moisture from thicker carpets and pads, which can then be vacuumed into a portable storage tank or disposed of directly into a nearby sewer point. Using a deep extraction tool can remove up to 1,200 times more water than a dehumidifier in the same period.

Self-propelled extraction tools are weighted extractors with an independent motor that can run up and down a carpet to remove moisture. In some cases, SERVPRO water restoration technicians may need to stand on top of the extractor during the motion to provide extra weight and squeeze moisture from the surface. By using probes, our technicians can take regular measurements throughout the service to assess the saturation levels of the carpet and how effective extractors are working. Often, extraction is followed by pre-cleaning and conditioning to bring the carpet back to its preloss condition after water damage.

Removing massive quantities of water from your home is tough without the correct, industrial extraction equipment. Contact SERVPRO of Dover / Stillwater at (973) 810-2825.
