The basement is the most commonly flooded area of a home for several reasons. Natural flooding and heavy rain can enter the basement easily through cracks in the foundation. Basements are also vulnerable to non-natural flooding from burst pipes, sewage backups, and major leaks from the water heater or washing machine. Extensive basement flooding causes considerable damage to the flooring, building materials, and items in your basement and it can also cause mold or mildew growth which is detrimental to your health. If you experience a flooded basement, call a professional immediately that provides flood damage restoration.
The first step is to find the source of the basement flooding and stop more water from coming in. Once we find the source, we will fix it and form a restoration plan based on the level of flooding and damage. We will take the right steps and precautions if the flooding contains sewage or other biohazard materials.
The insurance coverage in regards to flood damage varies and depends on certain factors such as the cause of the flooding. We can report the damage and our findings to your insurance company to help figure out coverage options.
We can begin the flood damage restoration immediately after evaluating the damage.
We can provide flood damage restoration with our truck mounted water extraction equipment and by using dehumidifiers to remove standing water along with removing moisture from the affected materials including flooring, furnishings, and other objects. We will also repair any damage caused by the standing water.
Carpet can be vulnerable to flood damage because it absorbs water so easily. The excess water can cause serious damage to the carpet fibers and backing while also increasing the risk of mold growth. Our team of professionals can pull up the carpeting and padding to evaluate the damage and restore what can be saved.
Sheetrock and baseboards can absorb small amounts of water which can cause them to swell or buckle. This can affect the wall framing as well as the insulation. Our team will remove these materials and save as much as they can.
Flood water likely contains microorganisms that can be hazardous to your health and its presence can lead to mold growth. Once the water is removed, restoration professionals use advanced cleaning products to clean and sanitize the area and materials affected by the flood.
After the basement flood water is removed, our team can dry the wet materials with our advanced drying equipment. We use air movers and dehumidifiers around the wet flooded basement affected area as well as high tech air scrubbers to remove odors and contaminants from the air. The drying process takes between 3-5 days.
