Emergency Water Extraction: Steamatic’s quick response extraction

In times of water damage emergencies, swift and effective action can make all the difference. At Steamatic Australia, we understand the complexities involved in extracting water from properties and the crucial role it plays in mitigating damage to property and contents. Whether it be from a flood, burst pipe, or malfunctioning equipment, Steamatic employs advanced techniques to restore properties to their pre-event condition quickly.

We extract water quickly!

Utilising specialist teams, state-of-the-art equipment, and a methodological approach, we act quickly, extracting water as soon as it is safe to do so. Here are some things to bear in mind even in an emergency:

Water Extraction Assessment and Planning: The first step in any emergency water extraction process is a thorough assessment of the affected area. We can be on-site within 24 hours to make the environment safe. Our trained technicians conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine the extent of the damage, identify potential hazards, and develop a customised extraction plan. This involves categorising the water source (clean, grey, or black), assessing structural integrity, and prioritising areas for extraction.

Selecting the equipment that’s right for the job: At Steamatic, we believe in investing in the latest technology to deliver superior results. We will select from our range of extraction equipment (powerful pumps and/or vacuums) to ensure we remove water as quickly and efficiently as possible.

From truck-mounted extractors to portable units, we have the tools necessary to tackle any water damage of any scale for commercial, residential, and industrial properties. Additionally, we employ moisture detection devices to locate hidden pockets of moisture and ensure thorough extraction.

Decide on the required extraction technique: Effective water extraction requires a combination of techniques tailored to the unique characteristics of each situation. Depending on factors such as the type of water, flooring materials, and environmental conditions, our technicians may employ various extraction methods. These may include:

  1. Water pumping: For large volumes of standing water, industrial-grade pumps are utilised to remove water rapidly.
  2. Wet vacuuming: In areas with limited access or shallow water, wet/dry vacuums are employed to extract water from surfaces.
  3. Carpet extraction: Specialised equipment is used to extract water from carpets and underlay, minimising damage and facilitating drying.


When it is the right time to dry: Once the bulk of the water has been extracted, the drying process begins. Steamatic employs advanced air movers (injectidry), dehumidifiers, and drying mats to remove residual moisture from surfaces and materials. We essentially pump warm air at high pressure into the property, forcing moisture out. This step is critical in preventing mould growth, structural damage, and other secondary issues. Our technicians monitor moisture levels continuously, adjusting equipment as needed to ensure optimal drying conditions.

Emergency water extraction is a multifaceted process that requires precision, expertise, and the right tools for the job. At Steamatic Australia, we take pride in our ability to deliver fast, effective water extraction services tailored to the unique needs of each client. From thorough assessments to advanced extraction techniques and comprehensive drying solutions, we’re committed to restoring property to its pre-event condition with care and professionalism.
