Water Extraction In Santa Ana Often Involves Using Various Tools

If a pipe breaks inside a unit above yours inside your Santa Ana apartment complex, there is a chance that your dwelling will get flooded out. If a large amount of liquid H2O pours into your unit from your ceiling, you may get puddles on your floor and be forced to conduct water extraction. The process can sometimes be simple and require just the effort from you, the homeowner using a wet and dry vac.

However, in significant situations, it is wise to call in a professional restoration contractor such as SERVPRO. We can conduct water extraction in your Santa Ana apartment utilizing a wide array of industrially advanced tools and equipment. The first step of the mitigation process is always to remove the H2O while it is still in its liquid form. We can accomplish this by using either a portable extractor or a heavy-duty truck-mounted unit.

The portable machines work well when getting into tight spots of your building. Still, they are not as powerful and require an electricity source. Truck-mounted extractors have much more power and are operated using the vehicle’s power. When extracting moisture, our SERVPRO technicians can connect specialized tools to the extractor machines to help pull up as much liquid as possible.

For example, for initial extracting, we can attach a light wand that works well to remove moisture from glue-down carpet or from padding that is getting removed. For more saturated carpets, we can implement deep extraction tools to help pull moisture from thick carpets and upholstered items. Some of these tools are stationary and use the weight of the operator to compress the fabrics. Other self-propelled tools the operator rides on, and the machine uses the extra weight to compress the carpets while it drives around the affected floors.

If there is standing water present, we could use a variety of different types of submersible pumps. These pumps get dropped into the H2O and then pump it out of your structure and into one of your sewage drains.

If you ever notice water coming down from the ceiling in your apartment, call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South at (714) 558-7772 any time of the day. We are available 24/7, and We’re Faster for Any Size Disaster.
