SERVPRO® has many options for extraction that will remove any standing water in your basement and get you started on the drying process.


Flooding at the lowest levels of your house can cause damage to your property. Our SERVPRO® team can assist with everything from the difficulties of removing standing water to drying concrete flooring and masonry units.

When dealing with flood damage to homes, one of the first things that must be done is extracting water. Standing water can cause damage to your house by promoting microbial growth and deteriorating exposed materials. These situations are best handled by truck-mounted or trash pumps.

What can I do to dry my basement after a flood?

Another concern is drying out the basement after extraction. We can use a variety of traditional and special drying tools to begin to evaporate water trapped in concrete or blockwork. These tools include:

  • Air Movers
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers
  • Floor mat drying systems
  • Positive pressure systems


Flooding in basements can be difficult, but our SERVPRO® Lower East Side Manhattan team is here to help. We offer a complete-service approach that includes both mitigation and reconstruction. Call us anytime at (917) 423-6364.
