Equipment & Safety Precautions Used in Water Removal

Water damage can cause irreparable damage to your property if not addressed as quickly as possible. Apart from compromising your property’s structural integrity, water damage can lead to mold growth, which can be harmful to your health.

Water damage restoration entails so much more than just removing standing water. It involves removing bacteria from the water-damaged surfaces, deodorizing the affected areas, and providing protection against mold and mildew.

Water damage companies usually use various types of advanced equipment to remove water in water damage restoration projects.

Common Equipment Needed for Water Removal

Moisture Meters

As the name implies, moisture meters help water damage restoration technicians to identify water damage on various surfaces in your home. These handheld devices allow you to locate moisture damage and map out a drying strategy.

Air Movers

Air movers use high-powered fans to circulate a large amount of air over damp surfaces in order to hasten the process of water evaporation and reduce the time needed for drying. Air blowers are extremely useful for drying carpets, floor mats, wall cavities, drywall, and under cabinets.

Air movers are typically less bulky, energy-efficient, and easy to use.

Air Scrubbers

Also known as air purifiers, air scrubbers are filtration systems that remove particles, odors, and pollutants from the air. This piece of equipment draws in pollutants and passes them through a filter, and then vents the air without impurities. Air scrubbers guarantee the air is breathable after water damage has occurred. 

Vacuum Cleaners

This equipment utilizes a rotating motor fan to remove liquid water from the affected area. It sucks up standing water and transports it through a hose connected to the equipment.


This is an advanced piece of water damage restoration equipment used to remove excess moisture from the air. It draws warm and humid air currents into its coils through a fan; condenses the air into liquid, and drains it through a drain pipe.

A dehumidifier speeds up the drying process, prevents mold and mildew growth, and lowers your home’s moisture levels.

Let’s look at the safety precautions needed to tackle water damage restoration.

Check for Potential Safety Hazards Before Entering a Flooded Property

Be sure electricity and gas are turned off before entering a water-damaged property for the first time. Debris can be hidden in standing water, so you need to be cautious when entering a flooded property.

Wear Protective Gear

It’s advisable to wear waterproof and chemical-resistant protective gear when cleaning up floodwater. Ensure you protect yourself with gloves, goggles, and head protection to reduce the risk of exposure to contaminants.

Category 3 water damage may require full-body protection because "black water" can be extremely dangerous.

Disinfect The Affected Area

There’s an increased risk for bacterial infection, especially if you’re dealing with category 2 and category 3 water damage. Use a strong disinfectant to wipe down the affected surfaces.
