Do You Need Professionals to Remove Water After Flood Damage to Your Newport Home?
SERVPRO Offers Newport Residents a Fast and Trustworthy Water Removal after Flood Damage
Flood damage to your Newport home necessitates water removal from your property before SERVPRO professionals can begin the restoration process. Floodwater often contains suspended solids and other debris that can be removed with the help of special pumps.
SERVPRO technicians use different extraction equipment to remove standing water after flood damage to your Newport home. The equipment used depends on the amount of water to be removed, solids present, and how high the water needs to be lifted. While some pumps can handle a lot of suspended solids, others have a higher water lifting capacity. SERVPRO techs also pay close attention to the level of contamination in the water and take appropriate precautions during water cleanup.
Types of Pumps SERVPRO Uses During Flood Restoration of Your Newport Home
Some of the most common pumps that we use in Newport homes include-
- Self-Priming trash pumps- These are used during water removal services when there is much material suspended in water. However, they have a limited lifting capacity and are useful when the suction lift is less than 25′. The pumps are powered using gas or diesel and variable in sizes.
- High-pressure pumps- SERVPRO technicians use these pumps when a high lift is desired, but they don't handle suspended solids well. We use them to extract water from basements and underground garages.
- Submersible pumps- One of the most common types of pumps that SERVPRO techs use. They run on electricity, are quieter than other pumps, and available in a wide range of capacity (can remove 100 to 18,000 gallons per minute). We use these when water is removed from occupied spaces.
