You could have flooding from outside due to heavy rains, or flooding inside from a faulty or overflowing appliance, broken or burst pipes, a roof leak, a sewer backup, and more. And because different types of water present different levels of contamination—even biohazards—leave the cleanup to the professionals who are trained and possess the expertise to do the job right. Our Water Removal Process Assess the Damage – Once onsite, we take the necessary safety precautions by wearing hazard gear and shutting down the electric power if you have not already done so. We determine the source of the basement flooding and take appropriate steps to stop the flow of any more water into your basement. We can then perform a full assessment of the damage. Identify the Water Type – Depending on the type of water that has flooded your basement, we will categorize it according to standards set by the IICRC. Some water, for example, water overflowing from a toilet or sewer line, contains more contaminants than other water, such as water from a burst water line pipe. Once we determine the category of water that has flooded your basement, we can develop an appropriate course of action. Classify the Type of Flood in Your Basement – Flooding receives a classification based on the extent of water damage in terms of the amount and how extensively the water has spread and been absorbed. For this step, we examine the walls and insulation, carpets, carpet pads, flooring, furniture, and more. We also look at surfaces such as concrete, brick, or hardwood that require a specialized drying procedure. We have years of experience in floodwater removal. Extract the Basement Water – Using portable and truck-mounted equipment, we remove the water directly to our trucks. We make certain it never touches another surface, and also dispose of it properly. We work quickly because we know the longer the water remains in your basement, the greater the damage that is incurred. Dry the Basement – After standing water has been extracted, we utilize high-powered air movers and fans, drying panels, and dehumidifiers to eliminate all moisture from the affected area. If weather conditions are favorable, we even open windows to take advantage of the sun and dry breezes to speed the drying process. We place sensors that gauge humidity levels and temperatures, and track their readings in a subsequent visit. Clean the Basement – With all the water removed and the area dry, we do a thorough cleaning and sanitization of the structure. We remove water-damaged items to our facility for proper drying and cleaning, and remove those items that cannot be salvaged. Areas that are susceptible to mold and mildew receive specialized cleaning and treatment. We even do HVAC cleaning and use HEPA vacuums to reduce the number of airborne contaminants that pose a threat from mold. Renovate Your Property – We will rebuild and renovate any areas of the structure that received heavy damage from the water in your basement. Our goal is to return your home or business to its pre-water damage condition, and make it safe and comfortable for people and pets alike.
