Is It Possible to Get Hundreds of Gallons of Water Out of My Shreveport Home?
Specialized Large-Capacity Equipment and the Trained Technicians to Operate Position SERVPRO as a Water Extraction Leader for Shreveport Residents
When you think about moving large amounts of water out of a Shreveport residence, storm-related flooding might come to mind. The reality is that the ordinary, everyday wear and tear endured by your plumbing and appliances is much more likely to cause a leak or overflow than a hurricane or torrential downpour. If you worry that the heavy-duty equipment used for catastrophic events is unavailable for your more mundane crisis, think again.
Is a Fresh Water Plumbing or Appliance Break Less Dangerous than Overland Flooding?
A water heater rupture or supply line break can pour massive amounts of water needing extraction into your Shreveport abode. The problem compounds if it happens while you are at work or out of town, and no one notices nor turns the water off promptly. Just a day or two of inattention can transform the clean Category 1 water into contaminated Category 2 or 3 fluids. What many do not realize is that plain, “clean” water is incredibly destructive to porous materials even without contaminants. It also provides the fuel needed for mold spores to transform into mold colonies.
What Do Professionals Use to Extract Large Amounts of Water?
SERVPRO stocks our service vehicles with all the extraction and structural drying equipment necessary to remove water and moisture fast. When water is deeper than two inches, we choose to position submersible pumps as a rapid and hands-off strategy, particularly helpful if some of the spaces affected are confined and difficult otherwise to reach. If the electricity is unavailable because of safety concerns, our powerful truck-mounted extractors operate using onboarded generators. The extractors:
• Avoid delays and offload water of all Categories fast
• Are capable of containing for lawful disposal 60 to more than 100 gallons of contaminated water
SERVPRO of South Shreveport has the state of the art equipment needed to extract water fast, regardless of the cause and extent of the loss. Contact us at (318) 865-4655 for speedy and skilled assistance.
