Businesses with water damage rely on fast and efficient responses to recover with as few issues as possible. Depending on the cause, standing water can carry contaminants such as chemical compounds, biological waste and other hazards. Those contaminants can cause discomfort and health complications when the property’s occupants are exposed to them.

Plus, standing water causes more damage the longer it remains in your building. That means that leaving the water in place raises restoration costs and creates more complications. We advise against leaving standing water and moisture untreated for more than 48 hours. Doing so means you will battle against the growth of bacteria, mildew and mold even after removing the water. Despite their unpleasantness, these issues are minor inconveniences compared to other problems that could arise.

Our Water Removal Process

When you call URI for commercial water extraction, we’ll send a team to your business to get the building dry again. We have a proven process to restore your property and help you get back to doing business as usual. Our water extraction services include:


  1. A fast response. We know that a rapid response after a flood is key to preventing further water damage. URI is proud to offer our clients fast, reliable services no matter when you need us.
  2. Stabilization and inspection. Before we remove the standing water from your building, we’ll assess the situation for the source of the water and whether it’s safe to be in the building and exposed to the water. Stabilizing the structure and cutting power to the affected areas are common steps during this stage.
  3. Item removal and water extraction. We use equipment such as wet vacuums and pumps to remove the standing water from your building. Once we eliminate the bulk of the water, we can start removing items in the flooded area. We’ll start drying less visible water that might have leached into walls, flooring or other parts of your building’s structure.
  4. Restoration. When our team finishes drying the area, we can provide turnkey solutions that include full restorations. We’ll replace any affected building materials and repair cosmetic damage.
