Heavy rain and lightning on background Indiana is no stranger to strong storms. Call SERVPRO for fast remediation should your home flood.

SERVPRO Rapid Response Teams Can Assist with the Recovery of your Home and Contents after Flood Damage in Battle Ground.

How can I determine the full force of a storm or flood on my property?

The priority when dealing with storm-related property damage is to conduct a thorough assessment. SERVPRO is a national provider operating here in Battle Ground and the surrounding area. Our team of dedicated technicians can scope your home for potential hazards and issues that could cause lasting problems. Typically, scoping tasks answer questions about whether there are electrical hazards, where water has entered the property and prioritize which areas require immediate attention. We perform both restorative and mitigative procedures to ensure that no further harm occurs at the property. Restoration works can usually begin once safety hazards are neutralized, and removal of excess water in the property is complete.

What equipment is used to remove floodwaters from a property after a storm?

The primary equipment for restoring flood damage in your Battle Ground home is an extractor. Water extractors use centrifugal motion combined with a heating element and negative air pressure. These extractors are typically powered using truck-mounts, which allow for consistent, high-volume extraction from residential properties. If the source of water is confined to upper levels or there is roof damage, technicians can use smaller portable varieties of water extractor. A technician can identify exactly which type of extractor to use in your property by judging the extent of water intrusion and material construction. Carpeted properties usually benefit from specially weighted extractors to squeeze the moisture out of the fibers.

What types of water extractors are there?

  • Weighted extraction equipment
  • Portable water extractors with storage tanks of 30 to 40 gallons
  • Truck-mounted extractors with storage tanks of over 100 gallons
