Why Extraction is Vital to Water Recovery for Tucson Homes

Water loss incidents vary from one Tucson home to the next, but substantial losses require immediate responses from qualified professionals. Situations like plumbing breaks or appliance failures can leave hundreds, or even thousands, of gallons of water on the floor of your house. Extraction is a vital element to restoring the property after this incident, and failure to do this efficiently can become a costly situation for area homeowners.

Removing any excess water from a structure is essential to reducing the time the drying of water damage in Tucson homes ultimately takes. When a need for water removal exists, we can rely on our extraction and evaporation approaches. Extraction is a favored option because of its versatility in application and equipment. Evaporation is still a standard element to drying and restoration of water loss incidents but rarely applied when standing water still exists. Our SERVPRO team must assess the situation to determine the best approach for water removal.

Pumping is one of the first approaches that can begin extraction work, as this is ideal when standing water conditions exceed two inches in depth. Above this level, the submersible point of the pump can pull in water and discharge it through the drain hose to a designated place. At two inches and below, the air becomes a factor with the performance of these pumps, and prime cannot stay engaged to pull new water from the damaged area.

Wet-vacuuming is a popular option for removing excess water as well, and one that follows pumping. This practice is ideal for depths below two inches, as you do not need a primed pumping machine. Instead, you have stationary and portable units that work like a vacuum’s suction to remove standing water from any flooring type. We have specialty tools and accessories for vacuums that can work to make moisture removal from carpets more efficient, as well. 

Our professionals must work quickly when faced with substantial loss incidents that deposit excessive water throughout your home. Through facets of extraction, we can quickly reach a point where drying options are possible. Give our SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson team a call anytime that you need us at (520) 760-9352.
