Lafayette Residents Trust SERVPRO for Water Removal

Water damage, whether it is caused due to ceiling leaks or burst pipes, can quickly escalate into a full-blown disaster. Following a water incident, the water removal from your Lafayette property must happen fast before drying of the structure can begin. 

SERVPRO techs use several pieces of equipment for water removal from your Lafayette home, including extraction tools and heavy-duty pumps. The more excess water SERVPRO techs remove with extraction equipment, the less time they need to evaporate it using drying equipment. We use tools, including extraction units, light wands, deep extraction tools, and various pumps. Each piece of equipment can efficiently remove water under a specific set of conditions. 

What are the Deep Extraction Tools that SERVPRO Techs use During Water Damage Restoration of Your Lafayette Home?

Deep extractions tools are designed to remove water from the carpet and pad. These tools are usually attached to a portable or truck-mounted extractor for enhanced efficiency. The deep extraction tools that SERVPRO techs use in Lafayette homes can be:

  • Self-propelled Extraction tools -These devices have an independent motor that moves the unit along the carpet at a constant rate. Water is extracted by compressing the rug and the pad and squeezing the water out. Most self-propelled extraction tools allow the restorer to 'ride' on them to provide additional weight and improve the extraction efficiency.  
  • Stationary tools - These tools do not move along the carpet and rely on the weight of the water damage restoration professional standing upon the device. These tools are available in various sizes, with the largest units capable of extracting water from a 200 square inch carpet area. 

Call SERVPRO of Lafayette at (765) 420-0077 for any water damage-related questions. Our trained technicians are available all hours of the day or night.
