How do SERVPRO Techs Extract Water During Flood Removal in Whitestown Homes?  

Extraction is a critical step during flood removal in Whitestown homes. The more SERVPRO techs remove excess water with extraction equipment, the less time they need to evaporate and dehumidify.  

SERVPRO techs use several extraction tools during flood removal in your Whitestown homes, including the following:

  • Extraction units
  • Submersible pumps
  • Light wands
  • Deep extraction tools

While some of these tools are small and portable, others can be rather bulky. The SERVPRO techs carefully weigh in factors like the amount of water to be removed, the type of the building, and the solid content before deciding which equipment to use.

Extraction Units That SERVPRO Uses During Flood Restoration of Whitestown Homes 

Extraction units or extractors are equipment that uses suction to remove standing water from your flooded Whitestown home. Most extractors that SERVPRO techs use are either portable or large truck-mounted units.  

While a portable extractor is highly flexible, and the techs can take it to almost any area of the affected building, they do need electricity to operate. Hence, if the flood has knocked the power out, SERVPRO techs might not be able to use these extractors.

Truck-mounted extractors are significantly more powerful, and they don't need electricity as they run off the vehicle's fuel. However, they can be challenging to use in a multi-level structure, and they tend to be very loud. That said, they are the equipment of choice when handling large quantities of floodwater. SERVPRO techs also use centrifugal pumps such as self-priming trash pumps and submersible pumps in some situations.
