Water Extraction Service in Fort Myes, FL

Unless you've got bionic eyes that can see through drywall and industrial strength fans at your disposal, it's best to call upon a water removal company also known as a water mitigation company.

 

These professionals are trained to be aware of certain construction materials inside your walls and attic that aren't visible, but have a tendency to absorb water. 

 

In the heat and humidity of Southwest Florida, attics are hot & dark...the perfect atmosphere for mold growth, especially if they've been exposed to water damage.

Water extraction professionals have high-tech, infrared cameras and moisture reading equipment that empowers them to see into your walls, assess the damage, and prescribe the proper treatment.

With flood damage in your home or office, chances are your head will be spinning with insurance claims and such. By hiring a water cleanup service, you're allowing us to take stress off your shoulders and taking the first step to getting your life back to normal. Wouldn't you have more peace of mind by leaving it to the pros? 

A water removal company serving the Fort Myers, Cape Coral, & Bonita Springs area

When you're ready to call professionals to cleanup the flood damage, you'll be pleased to know that Water Out Now offers free consultations, even if you don't use our company. You've got enough pressure to deal with. We don't want to add to it. We will come come to your home or office, assess the damage with you, and give you a competitive quote within the following areas of Lee County, Florida.

As residents of Fort Myers, FL we understand how prone this area can be to flooding especially on the barrier islands of Sanibel, Captiva, Pine Island, Matlacha, and Fort Myers Beach​. These cities sustained tremendous amounts of damage following Hurricanes Charley (2004) and Irma (2017).

 

If you're thinking of moving to Lee County, we recommend visiting LeeGov.com so you can be aware of flood zones and decide whether or not living in a flood plain is worth the risk.

 

You can also use the Lee County Property Appraiser's "Real Property Search" engine to find out what Storm Surge Zone your property resides in . If the subject property is located in Storm Surge Zone A, you have a much higher chance of being flooded and you will be required by your lender (if you take out a mortgage loan) to purchase flood insurance.

The Water Out Now Difference

As a company that makes money by removing water from your home or business, why we would educate you about this areas's flood zones? Wouldn't we benefit if more of our neighbors bought houses in flood zones and got flooded? Of course! But that's not what we're about.

We believe in building your trust so if a water emergency happens in the future, you can rest assured we're here to help you; not take advantage of your wallet.

Why we're so heavily invested in flood restoration technology

When your home or business is flooded, the last thing you want is for someone to come into your home, slosh around, touch a few walls and tell you "Yep, it's wet alright. We're gonna have to operate." That's what amateurs do. You should expect more from professionals.

A flood restoration professional should have tools and devices that allow him or her to see beyond what the naked eye sees. If the company you choose doesn't come to your property with the proper tools, don't walk, RUN back to your computer and find pros that do. They should have some or all of the following tools of the trade.

Moisture Camera
Moisture Camera

A tool that allows us to see an object's heat signature. If there's an electrical problem within the walls, the moisture camera will show us an area that is hot. If there are unseen areas of water or moisture buildup, the moisture camera will show us areas that are cool, even in broad daylight. This high-tech camera helps us to accurately assess the extent of damage to your property.

Moisture meter
Moisture Meter

Due to the humidity in Southwest Florida, most homes and offices are going to have a certain amount of moisture in their walls which can be determined with a moisture meter. This tool (which works in conjunction with an infrared camera) is used to probe walls so that we don't have to tear out sections of your wall to find out its moisture content. First, we establish a "moisture standard" by probing a wall in a dry area of your property. Then we compare this standard with a sample from a wet area in your dwelling. With this data, we're able to scientificly calculate a percentage of your room that's wet and the amount of equipment needed to dry it properly. Finally, we use the moisture meter to test once again after the dry-out process to ensure your safety.

Air Mover
Air Movers

The speed at which air flows over the surface of water affects the rate at which the water evaporates. That's why we use large, powerful, industrial-strength fans (also called air movers) because we know how important it is to you that we get the water out as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, this is where most amateurs fail because fans don't actually remove moisture from the air. Fans should be used in conjunction with dehumidifiers.

Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers

Warm, moist air enters a dehumidifier and crosses over refrigerant-cooled coils. The moisture condenses on the coils, and then water collects within the machine's reservoir or is ushered out of the dwelling via a drain line. That's basically how dehumidifiers work. Without a dehumidifier, a flood-drying fan will not be nearly as efficient. In fact, without a dehumidifier to catch the water vapor, eventually the water will resettle in the dwelling.

In addition to investing in flood restoration technology, perhaps the most important asset we bring to the table, is knowledge. Not all flooding is classified the same. Cleaning up a sewage leak is going to be handled differently than simply extracting clean water. When you hire Water Out Now, you're purchasing peace of mind, knowing that the water damage is going to be handled properly and the health of your family is our top priority.
