How to Remove Water in Jacksonville 

If you've ever had a plumbing mishap of any size scale, you know water removal from your home is not as simple as mopping it up or throwing a towel over it. With excess water in your home, it is often necessary to obtain professional help. 

Water Removal in Jacksonville can be daunting if you are not sure where to turn for assistance. If a kitchen pipe burst while you were away, chances are you may have one or two inches of water in your kitchen when you arrive back home. The trained technicians at SERVPRO are ready to assist you quickly 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. 

Before removing water, technicians stop the source to ensure additional water does not come into the impacted area. SERVPRO technicians then begin the extraction process. For water deeper than two inches, a submersible pump is used to pull water out of the home in conjunction with extractors. 

Significant amounts of water require a truck-mounted extractor. The storage tank holds between sixty and one hundred gallons of water. After the professionals remove the majority of excess water from your home, portable extractors remove the rest. Portable extractors have a five to twelve-gallon solution tank and a five to twelve-gallon waste tank. Our highly qualified SERVPRO technicians make several passes over the impacted area to remove the ultimate amount of moisture. 

After extracting water, drying the area is the next essential step. High-velocity airflow coming from air movers ensures faster evaporation by removing the damp, moist air from the room, and replacing it with drier  air. If cabinets are wet from the spill, wall cavity ventilating systems direct the air to open spaces to help mitigate damage. Dehumidifiers work together with air movers to ensure restoration to preloss moisture levels in your home. 

SERVPRO of Arlington/Jacksonville East is here to help you with water removal. We are available at all times and ready to assist you. Call us at (904) 721-2230, and our trained technicians make the water spill "Like it never even happened."
