Step 3: Water Removal / Water Extraction
Our equipment sucks, but we don’t!
In a typical water damage event, over 80% of the water can be removed by using various extraction methods. At SERVPRO of Chaska/Chanhassen, we have several truck mounted extraction machines as well as portable extractors to ensure that we remove the water as quickly as possible. Removing water in quick and efficient manner will significantly remove the risk for secondary damages to occur.
If there are contents that have been damaged by water damage in the area, we also have the resources to inventory, pack out, and store contents in our 19,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. We will remove any contents that have water damage and bring them back to our facility to be cleaned and restored to the best of our ability. We do everything within our means to “restore” rather than “replace,” which will reduce your costs in the long run.
To properly restore both your property and its contents, the key is speed! The longer standing water sits in an area or on contents, the more damage it does. We have teams ready to go and on-call 24/7 year-round! They are ready to respond to any sized water damage disaster.

Emergency Water Removal
Our highly trained technicians will begin the water removal process almost immediately. Depending on the amount of water, we may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry vacuums. Removing most of the water helps reduce drying time and helps prevent secondary water damage and mold and bacterial growth.
