Step 3: Water Removal / Water Extraction
Our local team in Mount Clemens, New Baltimore, is a trusted leader in water damage restoration. We have been restoring water damage for Harrison Charter Township residents for many years.
After we complete the inspection and damage assessment, we begin the third step, the water removal and extraction process. During this restoration phase, we remove most water from the damaged areas. Water is invasive and can cause significant damage in a short time, so fast action is required to minimize the potential for secondary damage and more costly and time-consuming repairs.
Our powerful, industrial-grade water extraction pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units allow us to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons of water from your property. At this stage, our professionals use this equipment to remove most of the water from the damaged area quickly, saving our customers time and money in many cases. We also document and monitor the drying process to ensure the damaged areas are returned to normal humidity levels.
During the water removal and extraction process, we will inspect the carpet pad and the carpet to determine if they need to be removed to protect the subfloor. We can also assist with moving and packing services when the damage is extensive. No matter what is required to extract the water from your property, Harrison Charter Township residents can rely on our Mount Clemens, New Baltimore team to get the job done “Like it never even happened.”
