Our Basement Extraction Process All of our technicians have the knowledge to quickly extract the standing water in your home. The reason why we place such a sense of urgency on removing the water in your basement is that overtime, stagnant water can become more contaminated. In as little as 24 hours, water that would normally be classified as clean, could turn to what the IICRC deems “grey water”. When this occurs, our job gets a little more complex, and different techniques are required to be used. However, when you do place a call to Margaaa Restoration services, we will follow a standard approach to extract the water in your basement that has been refined and perfected over the countless restoration projects we have completed. Extract the Standing Water There are several different types of extraction methods and the volume of water present in the affected area would determine which method we choose to utilize. Some of the methods we choose would include, truck mounted extraction units, submersible pumps and wet dry vacuums. Vacuum remaining water with a wet/dry vac After the water has been extracted, we take a wet/dry vacuum with a HEPA filter and pass over the affected area. This allows us to capture moisture that was left behind, along with any hazardous particulates that may be present. NOTE: Not all wet/dry vacuums have a HEPA filter, however we place a high importance on leaving your space as clean and particulate free as possible. Dry the space Next our technicians will place air movers and dehumidifiers based upon the recommendations of the IICRC. Typically, we will place an air mover every 10-16’ and 1 dehumidifier per every three air movers. As drying occurs, we will strategically take away any equipment that is unnecessary; only leaving the right amount of equipment to handle the drying levels. Disinfect the area By choosing a professional company such as Margaaa Restoration for your basement water extraction project, you will have access to the most effective disinfectants available. Once the drying process has occurred, we will apply a disinfectant to sanitize the affected area. This process will address any remaining bacteria that could have survived the drying process. Sometimes, our competitors will try to save money and use an over-the-counter disinfectant. In our experience, these are not as effective, or as safe as the ones we use.
