Step 3: Water Removal / Water Extraction
After our initial inspection and damage assessment of your Hanover Township / Bear Creek home or business, the process of extracting any remaining water in your home that is left over from the loss begins. During this step we are able to remove a majority of the water in your home or business. We have access to powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units that allow us to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons of water from your property in the blink of an eye. This technology and equipment allows us to ensure that your home or business will be quickly and properly restored to preloss conditions before you even know it.

Emergency Water Removal
Our highly trained technicians will begin the water removal process almost immediately. Depending on the amount of water, we may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry vacuums. Removing most of the water helps reduce drying time and helps prevent secondary water damage and mold and bacterial growth.
