Floods can inflict serious damage to your home—especially when not addressed immediately. The longer water sits, the higher the chance of structural issues and health hazards. At Same Day Restoration, our professionals use state-of-the-art water restoration equipment to repair and restore areas affected by water damage. 

What Equipment Is Needed for Water Restoration?

Same Day Restoration uses six pieces of equipment to mitigate and restore flood damage. Continue reading to find out what machines are used in water restoration and how they help your situation.

Flood Extractor

The flood extractor is designed to remove excess water from the damaged area. Using powerful suction, this vacuum extracts standing water and moisture from carpets, flooring, and other surfaces and stores it in a waste tank.

Air Movers

Air movers play an important role in accelerating the drying process. These high-powered fans remove embedded water from carpets and other materials while dehumidifying water molecules. In doing so, you can dry the damaged area fast before mold starts popping up.


Dehumidifiers are crucial in the drying process. These devices extract excess moisture from the surrounding environment and help prevent the proliferation of mold. They also speed up the drying process, which means you’ll be able to get back to business as usual faster than ever before.


In addition to air movers, fans are also a big help in the flood mitigation and restoration process. Fans boost air circulation and promote faster drying. When paired with other flood equipment like dehumidifiers and air movers, fans will expedite the process, destroying any chance of mold growth.

Air Scrubbers 

Air scrubbers remove contaminants from the air, such as mold spores, dust, and odors. Pollutants are often left behind after a flood, so purifying the air helps improve your home’s overall air quality. These devices are usually attached to air ducts or ventilation systems.

Moisture Meters 

Moisture meters measure the moisture content in the air. These meters are exceptionally valuable during the aftermath of a flood. Same Day Restoration uses moisture meters to ensure all moisture has been eradicated from your home to avoid mold damage.
