Vacuum Excavation Services
With specialized wet/dry high vacuum equipment, FLEX Services
provides a diverse set of services to both the Construction and
Industrial markets. Our industry-leading technology gives us the
versatility to move most materials at further distances and with
faster loading times than traditional vacuum methods. Each truck
is fully self-contained, with debris capacity of 13.5 yards, a hot/cold
water washer to assist in material removal and a 1,400-gallon water
tank. The combination of high vacuum and high CFM allows materials
to be moved up to 250ft horizontally and 30ft vertically, even further
under ideal operating conditions. Our range of services, from tight
access excavations to confined space clean-outs, can help you do
more with less--less headaches, less backaches, less time and less

walkways and crossing the driveway.
The Flex Services Solution: Our vacuum
excavation process caused no disruption of any services for homeowner.
We minimized excavations and eliminated spoils for minimal restoration.

Vacuum excavation is not new technology. Utility companies have
employed these techniques for years to operate safely around
buried infrastructure, or keyhole to confirm facility
locations. What is new is the increase in applications
for vacuum excavation due to the improvements in the productivity
and cost-efficiency of the equipment.
At FLEX Services, we have the capability to dig
