Hands holding home After a storm occurs. You can trust that your home is in good hands with our experienced technicians at SERVPRO.

SERVPRO is a San Jose-based Restoration Service for Flood Damage that Operates Twenty-four-hours a Day.

How do I get rid of floodwater in my house?

A consistent period of heavy rainfall can lead to flash-flooding, dam bursts, or groundwater intrusion for the residents of San Jose. When your property becomes flooded, the priority is to remove standing water as quickly as possible. The removal of standing water significantly reduces the extent of harm caused by water migration and the likelihood of structural collapse. SERVPRO technicians refer to this crucial part of restoration as the extraction phase. Our goal is to mitigate losses in the property as much as possible by quickly removing moisture using extraction equipment. 

Factors in deciding what type of water extractor I need?

- The distance of the structure wall to wall

- The height of standing water in the property

- Power accessibility for choosing between pumps or extractors

Does water extraction use a lot of power consumption?

Equipment that we use for Flood Damage Mitigation in your San Jose needs to generate significant energy to transport water. Pumping equipment is generally more power-intensive than extractors. However, both kits may require a vital power source. SERVPRO technicians stock power converters so that we can run extraction equipment of house mains safely. These converters are also equipped to withstand water exposure to ensure they are safe to run. We understand that using mainline electricity may not be possible in a flooded property, so we also stock portable and industrial generators to ensure that extraction can be completed quickly after flooding. 

What types of water extractors are there?

- Extraction units

- Light wands

- Deep extraction tools

- Submersible pumps

Getting rid of standing water in your home is the first step toward returning it to a preloss condition. Contact SERVPRO of Campbell at (408) 371-4001 now.
