How do I extract water on my own?
If you have a water damage event in your home, then you have a very limited timeline to stop it, mitigate it and stabilize the environment before it spirals out of control.
While SERVPRO is always quick to respond, it still takes some time for us to dispatch to your home after a water intrusion. Anything that you can do to mitigate the damage on your own before we get there is extremely helpful and will save you time and money on the restoration.
Extracting water should be one of your top priorities. There are many ways that you can extract with items that you already have in your household.
Obviously, if you have a vacuum that is capable of vacuuming up liquids or wet materials (like many Shop-Vacs are), this can be a great tool.
But even throwing down some towels to soak up water and prevent it from reaching vulnerable or high value areas is super effective.
