The Versatility of Wet Vacuums for Water Removal

Extraction is vital in the restoration and mitigation processes SERVPRO professionals undertake. After flooding or damaging water line breaks, high volumes of standing water could threaten the structure. We utilize multiple removal tools to help, though wet vacuums are often the most heavily called upon to complete the job.

Smaller Space Water Extraction

Water removal in Clearwater homes and businesses often relies on wet vacuums for their versatility in smaller workspaces. With many coastal homes having small storage areas for attics, flooding in this portion of the property requires a low profile and versatile extractors to help. 

Overcoming Accessibility Issues

Not all areas requiring water removal services are easy to reach or restore. With multi-story apartment buildings, for example, the portability of wet vacuums could be a benefit over running hoses from stationary units dozens of feet in the air. 

Used with Extensions and Attachments

Another advantage of selecting wet vacuums for water removal services is the attachments and related equipment to use with the machine. For example, light wands and carpet attachments provide a powerful deep suction into the flooring fibers to prevent unnecessary tear-out and replacement. Extensions of wet vacuums can include:

  • Light Wands
  • Weighted Extractors
  • Carpet Wands

Shallow Pooling in the Residence

Wet vacuums are also suitable for managing the last bit of shallow pooling that submersible pumps or trash pumps cannot remove. At a certain depth of a couple of inches or less of standing water, prime cannot be maintained by the larger extraction units. Still, wet vacuums provide a consistent and stable removal and discharge.

Knowing when and how to utilize our water removal tools best to help your residence is an essential part of successful mitigation. Our SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach professionals has a rapid response and industry knowledge to make these loss events "Like it never even happened." Call now at (727) 614-0099.
