SERVPRO will break down for you what is needed for your Daytona Beach water damage.

Natural disasters are not uncommon for Daytona Beach homeowners and business owners to battle throughout the year. With many of nature’s worst storms every year making landfall along the east coast here in Florida, we can expect to see and experience powerful storm systems capable of producing flooding conditions or compromising the structural integrity of your home. With many residences featuring crawlspaces, it is essential to understand the extraction and drying process for this area beneath the main floor of your residence.

Many tools are ideal for flood extraction in crawl spaces of Daytona Beach homes. Choosing among the available inventory of our equipment involves inspecting the damaged area and determining which extractors and drying tools are ideal for making this recovery as efficient as possible. Standing water is the primary concern here, so we begin by choosing extractors to get this threat under control.

Gas-Powered Trash Pumps

While in many situations, the ideal tool that our SERVPRO team might use for removing standing water is an electric submersible pump, potential solids or debris in the rising water make gas-powered extractors a better choice. These more powerful removal tools feature a broader intake and discharge hose for fewer obstructions with present solids.

Truck-Mount Extractors 

When our SERVPRO Green Fleet arrives at your home during a flood loss situation, our extractor truck can often begin helping immediately. By redirecting the flow from the crawl space standing water into drainage like sanitary sewer cleanouts on the property, we can continually pull out this higher volume of water at a powerful 300 psi.

Wet Vacuums 

Inaccessible areas and confined spaces are both used to describe portions of the crawl space beneath your residence. Wet vacuums with extraction wands can help to reach challenging places or remove water less than two inches in depth. Clearing out this last bit of standing water can prepare the open area for drying efforts with air movers and dehumidification equipment.

There are many extraction tools available to our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach team after a flooding situation. When crawlspaces become damaged, it could be destructive to your entire house. Let our team help by calling (386) 677-9993.
