Water Damage How to Remove Water When There is No Electricity in Your Park Forest Home Water and electricity don't mix! Water loss incidents can pose a safety hazard.

Temporary Power Solutions for Water-Damaged Park Forest Homes

With so many of our devices working off of electricity, we cannot discredit the possibility of water loss incidents also allowing for power outages and concerns within your Park Forest property. With situations where standing water and excessive moisture content are concerns, it can be unsafe to attempt to utilize power in the house even if the service for this utility has not become entirely disconnected. We have multiple temporary solutions and approaches that can help us to keep working despite hiccups in the power where you live. 

Many adverse effects and conditions stemming from the water damage exist in your Park Forest home after the incident. With how fast these same effects can continually spread the property, it is likely that more areas beyond the source point can become damaged by the movement of water. Our SERVPRO professionals have state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained personnel to address these concerns quickly and confidently. 

With many of our most common choices for extraction being tools that hinge on the use of electricity, our team must travel with portable power solutions for temporary electricity as needed to operate our water damage mitigation and recovery equipment. Among the most common of these solutions that our SERVPRO team offers are large generators. These run on gasoline or diesel fuel, and can continually provide an abundance of power to multiple units working simultaneously. 

Even with the use of gas-powered tools and equipment like our trash pumps, a generator can help to run air movers and dehumidifiers at the same time to address excessive moisture and dampness in exposed areas of the house. Much like the individual drying units, the generator can get moved from one point to another to provide portable power solutions to multiple points of the same recovery. 

No matter when disaster strikes, you need a team that stays prepared for all of the potential effects that your house could face after a water loss incident. Give our SERVPRO of Chicago Heights / Crete / Beecher professionals a call today at (708) 672-0077.
