3 Machines That Remove Flood Water From Your Commercial Building’s Garage

3/12/2018 (Permalink)

Flooding in St. George, UT, can affect almost every area of your commercial building. One of the most vulnerable areas is your structure’s garage, whether you use if for employee parking or to house your businesses’ vehicles. When a flood pushes several feet of water into your commercial garage, there are three types of equipment that a professional storm cleanup and restoration service may use to remove it.


1. Pump Truck


A storm cleanup company may bring in a pump truck to remove flood water from your garage because of the possible contaminants it can contain. Most water that spills over from rivers, streams and other local bodies of water to create flooding is known as black water, as it usually contains human and animal waste. A pump truck removes the water with large industrial hoses and deposits it into a large truck tank, where it can be delivered to a safe disposal area.


2. Sump Pumps


You may see your cleanup service use equipment called submersible sump pumps to remove flood water. An industrial sump pump like this can pull large amounts of standing water from an area into a tank or other container. Portable sump pumps can be useful in this situation for the mitigation of flood water, as they can be moved and placed where necessary to remove water from areas that are especially vulnerable.


3. Trash Pumps


A trash pump can be especially effective in cleaning up flood waters from your commercial garage because it is designed to pick up solids or thick, sludgy silt that may be mixed with the water. It can also handle the debris that may have come in during the flood, such as leaves and other plant material. Trash pumps may be more effective than sump pumps when the water contains a great deal of waste.

When flooding impacts your St. George, UT, commercial garage, it can be difficult to remove standing water on your own. However, professional cleanup and restoration services have a variety of equipment that can remove flood waters with a minimum of hassle.
