SERVPRO Ensures You Observe All Safety Protocols When Removing and Disposing of Floodwater

Managing flooding removal is a complex process. Although the main focus is to remove the intruding water from your house, you should also spare some thought to where the removed water ends up. Proper disposal is essential for safety and conformity with local or state guidelines.

For safe flooding removal from your North Little Rock property, efficiency during water collection is essential. Having the right extraction equipment promotes faster removal. Such equipment also simplifies arduous tasks such as removing water laced with solids such as silt, mud, or even raw sewage. In case solids are involved, our SERVPRO teams use trash pumps that eliminate the need to shovel out slurry or large solids by hand.

Other essential actions when handling flood water include:

  • Involving a biohazard firm to handle heavily contaminated water
  • Filtering water collected from certain areas such as carpeted floors
  • Disposing of water in a sanitary line

Although floodwater is usually heavily soiled, sometimes it can be clear if only rainwater breaches your property. Therefore, you might not be that cautious with its disposal. However, filtering such water before dumping it is essential to prevent releasing carpet fibers or other harmful materials. SERVPRO technicians do not need special equipment for such tasks. Emptying the water through a spare waste tank filter or even a window screen does the job. Our crews also have appropriate PPE and sufficient training to handle sewage-filled water or other biohazards from flooding. 

For SERVPRO of Little Rock, managing flooding removal means restoring every section of your property to its preloss state while conforming to safety and government regulations. Call us at (501) 803-9700. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
