Red hand pump for water from well NO! SERVPRO Has More Advanced Pumping Equipment to Mitigate Flood Losses in Concord Homes

For Concord Basements Using High-Pressure Extraction Pumps May Be Crucial

Many Concord homes have basements. Whether these areas have become converted into additional living space for your house or not, they remain susceptible to the groundwater threats as well as bursting pipes in the wintertime. With cold snaps typical through the winter months, inadequately insulated pipes could burst and cause substantial problems for the lower level of your home. Our SERVPRO professionals must choose the fitting extraction techniques based on the severity of the problem and its location, but we have ideal tools for these subterranean extraction needs.

 As challenging as water removal for Concord homes might become, in some instances, having the right tools from the beginning can ensure that these mitigation tasks begin shortly after our team first arrives. With basement damages, you need a pump capable of high-powered extraction over a considerable distance when no suitable drain exists to use in the basement level. Because of this, our professionals can utilize specialty pump options like our high-pressure pumps.

These units have gotten designed, as their name would suggest, to provide high-pressure operation parameters. These machines have a higher discharge head, often up to 360 feet, but can struggle with the presence of solids and debris in the water. While they are suitable for the use of clean water losses in the lower level of your home, it would struggle with the dirt, debris, and sediment commonly found in natural flooding threats. These devices can offer a high amount of lift as well, making them ideal for use in the lower levels of your home when other pumps with a shorter discharge capability are not applicable.

Extraction is a vital component to getting the house restored after a water loss incident. Once the pumps have done their job, concentrated wet-vacuuming can begin so that drying is efficient. Because much of the basement materials are masonry and concrete with lower porosity ratings, effective extraction and drying can often protect these materials from requiring removal or repair.

As challenging as water losses can feel in your basement, especially during the winter months, our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team is here to help. Give us a call anytime at (978) 486-9868.
