Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Fast West Texas Flood Response

9/2/2021 (Permalink)

Many people are of the belief that extensive flood damage requires the largest equipment, such as Green Fleet trucks, to be used for the water extraction process; however, this is a common misconception. In fact, many smaller submersible units are a better fit for residential flood damage repair.

One of the first things that SERVPRO Southwest Lubbock considers when responding to flood damage is the location of these effects. More confined spaces, such as residential properties, greatly limit the larger trucks’ accessibility. These trucks also require shorter hoses to be used, thus limiting their accessibility to damaged areas even further. Therefore, several submersible units are often more effective and efficient than the Green Fleet trucks when it comes to responding quickly to flood damage.

The water extraction process quickly removes hundreds to thousands of gallons of water from the affected area, thus reducing the risk of mold growth and/or secondary water damage. From there, more specialized equipment is brought in to begin the process of drying, cleaning, and completing the restoration of the damaged space - "Like it never even happened."

Our quick response is vital to your flood recovery. The experts at SERVPRO Lubbock Southwest will ensure the proper equipment is brought to the scene because we are faster to the disaster, so save you time and money.
