There are Added Obstacles to Removing Flood Water from San Jose Properties. 

Floodwater extraction must begin as soon as possible when homes become exposed to contaminants from natural flooding. We have a fast-responding team of experts capable of deploying powerful water removal devices to help. From job scoping to build back and repairs, we are a one-stop shop for flood restoration.

How Threatening Can Flooding be to San Jose Homes? 

Flooding can often be one of the most destructive emergencies that area homes face, so flood water extraction in San Jose properties must begin immediately. Standing water is devastating for houses, condos, and apartments. It is the immediate concern of responding technicians to address these pooling issues as soon as possible. Overexposure of building materials or contents can lead to microbial development or irreparable damage.

What Obstacles Prevent Efficient Water Removal Services? 

Efficient water removal is not always a guarantee after flooding occurs. Many potential hurdles exist in the elimination of floodwater. Structural concerns are often among the most threatening conditions, as the property is unsafe for restoration and recovery services until these dangerous areas get addressed. The location of flooding can also be a point of concern when reaching the area with extraction devices could prove challenging. The damage assessment process can often determine where specialty drying or extraction efforts might be necessary.

How Can Flood Water Extraction Occur? 

Our SERVPRO team arrives with several extraction devices capable of overcoming standing water as severe as several feet in depth. Quiet and continuous operation of these machines can ensure that we provide the most efficient water removal services for customers and protect their property as best as possible. Homes can become continually destroyed by standing water concerns, making the removal of this pooling a priority for responding technicians. We have several tools that can remove both water and any small debris that might be present. Some of these include:

  • Self-priming, gas-powered trash pumps
  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Extractor trucks
  • Wet vacuums and light wands

How Does Flood Water Extraction Benefit San Jose Homes? 

Removing standing water is a considerable concern for all area homes and businesses. After flooding occurs, many contaminants and debris can be introduced to the household, much of which floats and spreads through standing water. Our professionals implement multiple extraction devices in our inventory to ensure that we can overcome this persistent threat and remove the several inches or more of pooling water on the surface throughout the property. Once water gets removed, identifying other potential issues and threats to the property can be easier.

No matter how threatening flooding might appear in area properties when flood water extraction gets started quickly, the situation is more manageable. Our SERVPRO of NE San Jose team has experienced water restoration professionals ready to mobilize quickly when emergencies occur to get flood water extraction, water clean up, and flood restoration started as soon as we can. We are ready to help 24/7 when you call (408) 834-7663.
