Wet Vacuums are Some of the Most Heavily Used Extraction Tools for Water-Damaged Coral Springs Properties

Standing water presents immediate risks for a damaged home and its contents. While we have several extraction units available, few have the versatility and mobility of wet vacuums. There are several reasons it is among the most-used extractors.

Portability with Power

Water removal in Coral Springs homes is easier with a wet vacuum. One of the primary advantages of using one of these units is the portability and lighter weight for movement. Built-in flexibility makes these vacuums ideal for high-rise buildings, crawl space extraction, and other complicated or challenging extraction points.

Attachments and Versatility

We also use wet vacuums with other attachments and extensions to improve their functions and specific capabilities. Some of these include:

  • Carpet Wands – Carpets can absorb water quickly, so a high-powered attachment to pull out moisture trapped in fibers and padding is much-needed. 
  • Squeegee Wands – With hard surfaces that are less likely to absorb standing water immediately, squeegee wands bring water into the center of the rod for extraction and leave little behind on the surface. 
  • Weighted Extractors – Similar to carpet wands, weighted extractors work best on carpeted floors with padding. These units use weight to compress layers of the flooring and displace water to the surface for extraction.

High Functionality with Solids 

Another advantage of choosing wet vacuums to remove floodwater and standing water is handling some solids and debris in the pooling. Multiple extraction units in our inventory cannot move the waste in standing water during discharge, but wet vacuums make this collection and draining more manageable.

Removing standing water or floodwater in any capacity can be a considerable challenge. Even with the sophisticated tools at our disposal, our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team must act fast to secure homes and businesses. When disasters strike, trust our fast-responding restoration team to help. Call today at (954) 973-4130.
