Extracting Flood Water from Hampstead Basements

7/8/2022 (Permalink)

storm clouds and lightning Did your home experience flooding with recent storms? SERVPRO has the extraction equipment to remove the water.

Basements can be a common area affected by flooding, as water seeks the path of less resistance, letting gravity pull it to the lowest possible point in the house without obstruction. When water begins to pool at this level of the residence, flood extraction is necessary to protect your belongings and the home's structural integrity. 

Patching Structural Vulnerabilities

When beginning the recovery of flood damage in Hampstead homes, including water removal from the basement, it is prudent for technicians to learn where water is penetrating the structure. Patching foundation vulnerabilities make the upcoming water removal services faster and more productive. 

Water Removal Services 

Removing standing water from the structure is one of the most direct methods of helping a home after flood damage. It quickly finds its way to the basement of residences, even when the penetration did not originate through the foundation. The result can be several inches, or even feet, of pooling floodwater at this subterranean level. We have several extractors to overcome potential obstacles like:

  • Deep Extraction - The depth of the damage can influence the choice of an extractor. Greater volumes require more powerful units, including our truck-mounted options for several hundred gallons per minute of production. 
  • Floating Debris - Solids and matter can limit the options for extractors when clearing out the house. Trash pumps have become a trusted option for a high discharge yield. 
  • Elevation Pumping - Because pumps are sometimes asked to push several feet to reach grade, high-pressure pumps can sometimes be preferred.

There are many challenges to protecting and restoring the basement level of a house after destructive flooding. With these disasters' impact on the structure, it is vital to get emergency services started as soon as possible - especially water removal. Our SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties team is standing by now to help at (910) 319-0600.
