Pooling floodwater can be a threatening presence in a Mukilteo basement

Intruding water can threaten the contents and occupants of a house almost immediately. With how traumatic flooding can be for the property, it is vital to contact our fast-responding SERVPRO professionals to help.

Choosing the Right Submersible Pump

When flood damage threatens Mukilteo homes, the basement is usually the area hit the worst. Gravity pulls water to the lowest levels of the property, where extraction can then be a challenge for our responding technicians. In these situations, we use:

  • High-Pressure Pump – Friction is a considerable obstacle for technicians when extracting the basement level. These powerful pump options help force standing water out of the property and clear the affected area for cleaning and drying.
  • Self-Priming Trash Pump – Trash pumps often provide the same level of extraction capacities as larger electric submersible pump options, though they have the added advantage of also removing smaller debris and solids that might be present in natural flooding situations.
  • Wet Vacuum – Any submersible pump can only provide a limited range of operation until the standing water reaches around two inches in depth. Portable wet vacuums help collect and remove the rest of the standing water for efficient restoration.

With how quickly flood damage can get out of control, having powerful extractors arriving with the Green Fleet makes our SERVPRO of South Everett a wise choice to help. Give us a call at (425) 367-4484.
