How Do Professionals Remove Water from Your Property After Flooding?

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Equipped to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Property

Water removal is one of the most crucial steps in successful restoration after a flooding incident. Both standing water and residual moisture need to be removed quickly and efficiently. Professionals have a host of equipment to accomplish this job. 

When SERVPRO professionals arrive for water removal on your Manassas property, they bring some of the best equipment. Here are some of the equipment you should expect to see during the restoration process. 


This equipment is used to pump out the stagnant water from your property. Our team utilizes hand-held or truck-mounted depending on the amount of water to be removed. Extractors are one of the first equipment to arrive on site. 


Once the extractors remove the standing water from the property, the next challenge that SERVPRO technicians square off against is the residual moisture. Dehumidifiers are the equipment that gets this job done. They extract water vapor from the air speeding up the drying process. 

SERVPRO technicians use two types of dehumidifying equipment- Refrigerant and Desiccant Dehumidifiers. While the refrigerant dehumidifiers work on the same principle as an air conditioner unit, the desiccant one uses special chemicals that absorb moisture from the air. 

Air Mover 

Dehumidifiers alone can not eliminate the residual moisture. Our team uses air movers to circulate and replace wet air with drier air. Strategic placement of dehumidifiers and air movers ensures a complete and rapid drying process. 

If the residual moisture is not eliminated promptly, it can lead to secondary issues, including mold growth. Seek professional help to remove water as soon as possible after a flooding incident. Both the standing water and residual moisture removal are crucial for a successful restoration process.
