Jamaica Plain Basements Require Several Extractors to Remove Flood Damage

If the basement area of your home becomes damaged by intruding floodwater, it is vital to have mitigative strategies in place to overcome these threats as they occur. Our fast response to these emergencies allows us to deploy effective extraction units to help.

Truck-Mount Extractors

Flood restoration of Jamaica Plain homes relies on powerful extraction units to remove standing water where it exists. In the lower levels of your household, natural floodwater often requires units strong enough to overcome the elevation necessary for the safe discharge of floodwater away from the property. Truck mount extractors can be used in conjunction with several attachments and extensions, including:

  • Squeegee wands
  • Light wands
  • Deep extraction

Submersible Pumps

Traditional electric submersible pumps are not as widely used in flooded basements because of the likelihood of solids and debris in the standing water. Instead, trash pumps and gas-powered units like these are interchanged. Despite being more powerful than plug-in units, the larger intake and discharge hoses allow easier management of potential debris.

Wet Vacuums

Basements are not always as accessible as restorers might like. To overcome this complicated space, portable extraction units that are lightweight and versatile are often the most widely used in these situations. The wet vacuum is the most helpful of these types of tools in our inventory. Several attachments can be used with these units, and they operate on widely available 110V outlets.

Removing water from the damaged areas is not always a simple and quick part of the restoration process. When sites like the basement become overwhelmed with flood damage, extractors must be capable of removing substantial volumes of water that also likely have solids and debris. Our SERVPRO of Jamaica Plain / Roxbury team has a fleet of vehicles stocked with necessary restoration equipment to help. Call now at (617) 466-6909.
