Equipment & Safety Precautions Used in Water Removal

Water damage is one of the most dangerous and expensive types of property damage. After removal can be simple at times, but sometimes professional water damage restoration is needed. 

Water Extraction

Water extraction is the process of removing water from homes or businesses after floods, leaks, or other water damage events. Water can be removed by professional contractors or property owners using pumps and/or suction devices.

It's important to have your home dried out as soon as possible after a flood or leak because mold, bacteria, and other contaminants will begin to grow in the presence of moisture.


Dehumidifiers are used to remove moisture from the air. You can buy a dehumidifier and use it to remove moisture from the air in your home or business.

Dehumidifiers usually come with an electronic control panel, which allows you to adjust the temperature of the room and turn on an automatic shut-off feature in case of emergencies. The controls also allow you to set specific humidity levels for each room in your home (depending on how severe its dampness problem is).

Air Scrubbers

Air scrubbers are machines used to remove water from the air. They can be rented or purchased, and they can be used in commercial or residential settings.

Air scrubbers work by drawing air into their internal filter system and then forcing it through a bed of activated charcoal, which traps the moisture within itself. This method is effective at removing mold spores and preventing them from spreading throughout your property. Air scrubbers are often paired with dehumidifiers when drying out a building after flooding occurs because they work together synergistically:


Air and moisture can be removed from the area with fans. When a fan is used, it will help to dry out the area faster and make it safer for you to enter. Fans should only be used if there is no risk of electrocution. In some cases, fans can be used in conjunction with dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process. However, it's best to let a professional handled any water damage cleanup work because of potential hazards associated with electrical equipment or mold growth.

If you're looking for an affordable way to dry out your home after a flood or other type of water damage event has occurred, then using several oscillating fans strategically placed throughout your home may help get things dried out quickly.

Containment Barriers

Containment barriers are used to contain water on the surface before it is removed. Containment barriers are made of plastic or rubber and are placed around the source of water removal. The material used in containment barriers will depend on the type of material being removed and how large an area needs to be covered by a containment barrier. Containment barriers should be set up in combination with fans and dehumidifiers so that there is no chance for any water to escape from behind the barrier while it's being removed by commercial-grade equipment such as pumps, etc.

Getting Professional Help to Handle Water Removal in Your Property

If you have water damage in your Forest Park, OK home or property, it’s important to get professional help. You need to make sure that all the necessary equipment and safety precautions are used during the process of water removal.

The first thing you should check is whether the technicians working on your property have proper training and certification. If they do not have these things, then they probably aren’t qualified enough to handle a situation like this one.

You also want to make sure that they will be using proper waste disposal methods while removing all those unwanted liquids from your home or business property. This means that they will either dispose of them themselves or take them directly where they need to go so that no harm can come from them being around other people who might put themselves at risk by encountering these harmful substances without protection first being put into place beforehand before any work begins taking place!

Water removal is a complicated process, and it’s important to take the time to learn about water removal before you tackle it yourself. If you need help with any aspect of water removal, contact us today!
