Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration
Quickly & Carefully Helping You Get Back to Normal
Basements are the lowest point in a home and tend to flood first during any kind of water emergency. When the unexpected happens, ServiceMaster Restore® will be onsite within 2-4 hours to restore your home as quickly as possible. With rapid response, your floors, walls, and personal property can often be restored. Water intrusions can occur in basements from sources inside and outside the structure.
Our technicians use advanced water extraction equipment to remove the water and clean the affected area. They can also identify and address any areas of potential water intrusion. Structural drying is used to reduce the moisture content in the walls, flooring, and other affected areas, to encourage the drying process. We may use air movers, dehumidifiers, and other specialized drying equipment to dry the basement.
Dealing with the impact of a flooded basement is enough. Let our experts handle the restoration.Contact a restoration expert near you.
Once the moisture has been removed, we can help restore any affected property or materials, and address any water damage to the basement walls or flooring. We can also inspect for any mold or mildew that may have occurred from the water intrusion, and treat and remove any problem areas.
Our professional technicians are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have, and to explain the process. Contact ServiceMaster Restore® today to get your basement restored quickly and safely.
The Effects of Hydrostatic Pressure on Foundations
Excessive rain or snowmelt can oversaturate the ground, resulting in hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure occurs when moisture outside of the basement or foundational wall exceeds the pressure inside. Water will naturally seek the lower pressure, resulting in foundational leaks and even cracks. The water can cause the basement walls and floor to deteriorate, leading to further damage to the foundation.
To prevent hydrostatic pressure from occurring, a proper drainage system should be installed around the foundation of the building. This will help to direct water away from the foundation and reduce the chance of oversaturation of the ground. Proper maintenance of the drainage system should be done regularly to ensure it is functioning as intended.
