Emergency Water Removal

Our highly trained technicians will begin the water removal process almost immediately. Depending on the amount of water, we may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry vacuums. Removing most of the water helps reduce drying time and helps prevent secondary water damage and mold and bacterial growth.

  • Use Submersible Pumps and Industrial Wet/Dry Vacuums

We inspect the carpet and pad and determine if they should be removed to protect the subfloor.
