SERVPRO Uses Advanced Tools to Restore Flood Damage in Fort Lee Homes

Flood damage restoration of your Fort Lee home needs to happen fast to prevent any lasting aesthetic and structural issues. The longer the floodwater stays in contact with the building material, the more harm it can cause to its structural integrity.

Consequently, professional restorers like SERVPRO prioritize water extraction when dealing with flood damage to your Fort Lee home. As flood water often contains debris and solids, restorers need different types of pumps to remove the standing water from your property. The goal of restorers is to remove as much water as quickly as possible. 

Types of Pumps SERVPRO Techs use

A pump is one of the most useful pieces of equipment to remove water from a flooded structure. SERVPRO techs use different types of pumps that vary in mechanism and capacity during flood restoration.

Centrifugal pumps are commonly used in the restoration industry. A centrifugal pump converts the rotational energy from a motor to power for moving fluid against gravity. The centrifugal pumps we use in flood restoration include-

  • Self-priming trash pumps
  • High-pressure pumps
  • Electric submersible pumps

The type of pump required depends on the size of solids present in floodwater and the distance through which water needs to be transported.

Electric Submersible Pumps

As these pumps are portable, work on electricity and provide continuous operation, they are the most common types used for water extraction. Submersible pumps are available in various capacities and can remove from 100 to 18,000 gallons of water per hour. Large industrial units can provide up to 265 feet of discharge head. However, if the floodwater contains solids or other debris suspended, then trash pumps are the best option.
