Restorex was quick to come out after our sump pump float failed to engage the pump. They ran a machine over the basement carpet to try to pull the water out and into the sump pit after the pump was working. Afterwards, they installed about 20 fans and 2 large dehumidifiers for 3 days to continue to dry out the carpet. Very friendly and easy to talk to guys.

Corbin was very informitive, was also very pproffesional and curtious with me each time we spoke or visited. I felt he went above expectations on the entire task at hand. Corbin handled the entire project start to finish and offered additional suggestion along the way to better my problem with the mold. He handled a roof and deck replacement along with remaining mold remediation. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND RESTOREX SHOULD I EVER NEED IN THE FUTURE, THANKS CORBIN! Restorex and Corbin is what services should be. Dan O

Corbin, Terry and the crew went above and beyond to make our worst nightmare turn into a dream come true. We purchased a house in Oct 2021 and 2 hours after closing we had a fire. They were quick to come out and start the process of making our home better than before ! They were very kind and hard working , never hesitated to answer any of our questions or concerns and walked us through the process and even took some matters in their own hands ! As first home owners and our first fire, things were scary, confusing and very stressful! But thanks to them they made the process easy and worked very hard to get us into our home ! They even went out of their way to help get our appliance in the home and hooked up which wasn’t expected of them ! They still are responsive and quick to help ! I highly recommend reaching out if you’re in need of amazing work and want nice and respectful crew ! Super clean work and overall amazing people ! I couldn’t thank them enough !

Corbin spent 20 minutes on the phone with us yesterday trying to diagnose a leak situation behind a load bearing wall. He was extremely patient with us while asking us just the right questions to sufficiently solve our problem without even coming to our house. I would not hesitate to call him again or recommend him and his business! He knows his stuff!!

When our sump pump, back-up, and water sensor alarm all failed, and we ended up with water in our basement, we did a Google search and are so happy that we found Restorex! Corbin took my call late on Sunday night and came to our house first thing on Monday morning to assess and make a plan. His crew was out within an hour and immediately got started on getting the carpet removed and their equipment in place to dry everything out. They were all so nice and polite and worked very hard and efficiently. They made a situation no one wants to deal with as pleasant and painless as possible. Hopefully, we never have another flooding situation, but if we do, I will absolutely call them again!

Brian G. was amazing at inspecting our rental unit crawl space. We had some standing water concerns and weren’t sure if it had caused damage, needed some repairs, or was okay. He provided some great advice on steps to take next. I was pleased Restorex doesn’t try to upsell, and has our best interest in mind. Will definitely use them again!

Brian Granger and his crew are top notch! We have known him for a couple of years and already liked and respected him. When we had a major water leak he was the one we knew to call and were not disappointed.

Water Removal is one of the essential services of any water damage restoration project. When a property floods and there is standing water on the floors, water removal equipment is required to remove the standing water and to get the structure restored to its original condition.

WATER REMOVAL EQUIPMENT

Restorex uses a variety of water removal equipment to provide our removal and recovery services to our customers.  The equipment we use is below:

We will use portable trash pumps when the water in a basement or crawlspace is above an inch deep. Trash pumps can be one of the best ways to remove water from basements because of the amount of water they can pump in a minute. They also can use a standard electrical power source found in homes and businesses. This makes these pumps very resourceful.

We will use a submersible trash pump for a flooded basement or flooded crawl space. Usually, a basement floods because the sump pump has failed. Due to the water pressure on the basement walls because of heavy rains, the water will be forced into the basement.

Typically, we will work with a local Plainfield licensed plumber to get the sump pump replaced before we begin our water mitigation services. If the plumber is not able to replace the sump pump because the water level is too high, then we will begin removing the water with trash pumps until he can safely replace the sump pump.

Gas-powered pumps can move a lot of water very quickly. They are the best pumps to use when the water level is above a foot high. We do not use gas-powered pumps as often because it requires unique situations for them to be needed. Typically, a flooded basement or crawlspace will not be high enough to justify using a gas-powered pump.

They can be difficult to use because they need to be primed before they begin removing water and they must have a steady flow of water to remained primed during the water removal process. Usually, a submersible trash pump is preferable over a gas-powered pump.

When water removal requires a gas-powered pump normally there is a major water damage issue or a long time standing water damage issue. Either way, we don’t normally find ourselves in situations that warranted the use of a gas-powered water pump.

A portable extraction unit will remove water from a hard surface floor, like concrete, or from a commercial-grade carpet. It uses a wand that can remove small amounts of water from the surface where a submersible pump will fail.

A portable extraction unit is necessary when the water level is low and water damage has occurred in an area of the property where a trailer extraction unit cannot reach. This can be in a basement or on the second story of a home, or in the center of a commercial building.

Weight-assisted water removal is the best way to remove water from residential carpet and pad. The vacuum wheel uses the weight of the vacuum and water technician to push the water out of the pad and vacuums the water and pumps it into a drain.

Restorex uses a weight-assisted water removal extractor to remove water out of carpet and pad in flooded basements. These extractors do an excellent job of removing water from basements. We can save wet carpets in basements because of this water removal method and give our customers options when they are placing insurance claims.

The final way our team removes water is by using a trailer-mounted extractor. We use a trailer-mounted extractor to remove water from flooded crawl spaces and to remove water from category 3 jobs. Category 3 water is also known as sewage water or black water.

Sewage water requires special attention and proper disposal. This why we need to store the water that is removed a trailer-mounted tank to dispose of the water properly off-site.

DIFFERENT WATER REMOVAL AREAS

BASEMENT WATER REMOVAL

When a finished basement floods, water removal is necessary to properly remediate the damage. Most of the water is removed using our weight assisted extractor, which is the best way to remove water from a flooded basement.

If we properly remove the water from the soaked carpet and pad, we can successfully dry the carpet in place, which can be a great opportunity for a homeowner if they don’t want to go through the hassles of replacing the carpet and pad.

CRAWL SPACE WATER REMOVAL

When a crawl space floods from heavy rains, a burst pipe, or a sump pump failure, it can be a difficult job to remove the water. Crawl spaces are generally not easy places to get in and out of and they also are not the cleanest places to work.

Removing water from a crawl space requires more time and more planning than a basement or the main level of a home. Normally, we will have to remove the vapor barrier first before we can start extracting the standing water under the home.

Once the vapor barrier has been removed, we can either use a submersible pump, if it is clean water, or we will use our trailer-mounted extractor for sewage water removal.

Flooded crawl spaces require our technicians to wear extra protective equipment when working in a confined space. Typically, we will wear Tyvek suit, gloves, and eye protection. If we are removing category 3 water, then we will also wear a full-face respirator and a rain-suit over our Tyvek suits.

WATER REMOVAL FROM A HARD SURFACE FLOOR

When we are removing water from a concrete floor, we will use a special tool called an extraction wand. This wand can provide suction at the surface of the concrete floor and vacuum the smallest amount of water from it. An extraction wand is an excellent tool for removing water from a hard surface floor.

DRYING THE STRUCTURE AFTER WATER REMOVAL

Water damage that requires water removal is typically substantial. After the water removal services are completed, a dry out will also be needed to get the wet structure dried back to its original moisture content. If the structure is not properly dried, the property will be at risk for mold and rot damage. Our Drying Services always follow our Water Removal Services.

Our extractors are excellent at removing large amounts of standing water from the property, but they are unable to remove the moisture that absorbs into the wood subfloors, wood stud walls, carpet and pad, and drywall. Therefore, it is necessary to use water damage drying equipment to get the property dried out. The equipment will typically run for about 3 to 5 days, depending on the severity of the water damage and the parts of the property that were affected. Air movers, dehumidifiers, and heaters are the standard drying equipment we will use to mitigate commercial and residential properties that have been affected by water damage.
