SERVPRO Offers Fast and Efficient Flood Damage Restoration Service in Germantown

Flooding after a storm can wreak havoc on your property both in terms of the immediate devastation it causes and the long-term effects of the water damage. Hiring professionals like SERVPRO can help minimize the impact of flood damage to your Germantown home. 

The first thing that SERVPRO techs do during the restoration of flood damage to your Germantown home is to extract the standing water on the property. As floodwater is often contaminated, it is essential to extract it from the property quickly. SERVPRO techs use various water extraction equipment to get the job done. The more excess water restorers remove with extraction equipment, the less time is needed to evaporate and dehumidify the remaining moisture with drying equipment. 

What Type of Extractors do SERVPRO Techs use During Flood Restoration of Your Germantown Home?

The Commercial extractors that SERVPRO uses to remove water from your flooded Germantown home have several advantages over household water removal methods. The extractors that SERVPRO techs use can be portable as well as truck-mounted.

A portable extractor is very flexible since it is usable in almost any structure area; they are one of the few valid options within a high-rise building. They require electricity to operate, so power needs to be provided from the facility or a generator.

Truck-mounted extractors offer a more powerful vacuum compared to portable extractors. They run off the vehicle's fuel, and hence, no on-site power is needed to operate them. These are used when more energy and lift are required to remove water from a basement or submerged underground garage.

In case of a flooding event at your residence, Call SERVPRO of Gaithersburg / Germantown at (301) 963-8474; we are available to serve you any time of the day.
