Flood Water Extraction
Whether we’re attending to a small leak in a home or a flood in a commercial building, Ideal Response’s recovery process always begins with the extraction of water from the property. The scale of the water extraction process is governed by the volume of water – the larger the flood, the more complex the extraction process becomes. Add black or grey water to the flood and you have the additional problem of decontamination after the extraction is complete.
Ideal Response water extraction technicians have two key objectives in mind when it comes to flood remediation: to prevent unnecessary absorption of the flood by the structure, reducing the possibility of secondary damage such as “swelling”, and to control evaporation, managing the levels of moisture in the air, which reduces the likelihood of further, often unseen secondary damage.
Add to this the fact that the rapid extraction of water from an environment can greatly reduce the amount of “strip-out” required following a flood, the use of professional extraction services can significantly reduce the costs normally associated with a flood.
Our rapid water extraction philosophy is further supported by the guaranteed decontamination of air and surfaces through the application of the unique BIOSWEEP® process.
