Flooded Basement in Oak Creek, Wisconsin
There are various types of deep extraction tools that can be attached to an extractor. Above is a before and after of a flooded basement using a self- propelled extractor. The before photo shows the saturated carpet. The after shows the result of weighted extraction. Self-propelled extraction tools are powered by an independent motor that moves the unit over carpet at a consistent rate. These devices compress carpet and pad, squeeze out water, and remove water through the vacuum system of an extractor. These devices typically move at variable speeds, either forward or backward. Weight is important to the tool’s effectiveness since water must be squeezed from the carpet and pad, which is why these tools are designed to allow the restorer to “ride” on the unit to provide additional weight.
