If you have water damage in your basement, then you've got some real problems on your hands. But why should you invest in a flooded basement cleanup?
Water damage is not just about aesthetics, because a flooded basement can cause real health problems.
First of all, a wet basement is a breeding ground for mold, which will require a thorough mold remediation process. The excess moisture paired with poor ventilation will cause the growth of large mold colonies. Mold can aggravate your airways, harming your respiratory system. It can become such a problem that only a basement flooding clean up service with experience can remediate the health hazard.
Bacteria also thrives in damp basements because the conditions are perfect for it. Bacteria in the air once breathed in can cause nasty infections that can be hard to get rid of. The problem with bacteria is that once you think you are getting better you can get sick all over again as the root cause is still there in your wet basement.
Apart from health concerns, getting a wet basement cleanup will save your material possessions for future storage. Moisture can rot and destroy stored items in a basement and that's exactly what most of use basements for, safe storage! Our basement cleanup services can make the area as dry as a bone for storing all your stuff again.
First off, our crew will engage in basement water remediation. They will identify the source of the water, the extent of the damage and if there is mold to be removed. An inspection is thorough and our employees are trained to notice every little detail. We can't tell you enough how important the basement flood remediation phase is. The flood source is carefully considered. If the flooding is not the cause of a natural disaster, we search for the leak until we find it. If there is a leak or burst pipe we have staff who can fix it in no time and stop the flow.
After our teams have performed the inspection they can then get down to business and start the removal of water. The flooded area is drained using high capacity pumps. Mold is then removed from floors and walls. The affected areas are cleaned of mold and bacteria using specialist chemicals that will cleanse and disinfect anything they touch. The chemicals are strong and effective but they must be used by people who know what they are doing and are teams are trained on how to handle them all properly. The whole area is scrubbed until it is pristine clean.
