Flooded Basement Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair

water in flooded basement in Decatur, NY

Spring is on its way, and for many homeowners, the end of winter often brings flooded basements in addition to flowers and longer days. When the overnight temperatures begin warming up, frozen ground begins thawing and water makes its way to the lowest point possible. This results in wet basements and hours spent dealing with basement flood cleanup instead of baseball, gardening, or anything else you’d rather be doing.

All too often, homeowners have walked down the steps to their basement only to discover a murky pool of water and basement water damage. Following the path of least resistance, water has a knack for finding holes and cracks in basement walls, leaving pools of water in basement and often the need for professional repairs. Beyond the cracks and holes, which can be found in most basements across the country, basement flooding can typically be attributed to heavy rains, poor drainage around basement walls, or sump pump problems. Sometimes, an unfortunate combination of all of these factors is to blame.

According to Flood Smart, a small 1,000-square foot home with only an inch of water in the basement can result in $10,000 or more in basement flooding repair and restoration costs. Due to the scope of the basement water removal, flood damage cleanup, and possible repairs, you should immediately contact a water or basement restoration specialist if you ever awake one day to find a dirty swimming hole in the basement of your home. With potential causes ranging from faulty plumbing to an improperly sloped foundation, a flooded basement restoration professional will identify and correctly solve the problem in no time at all.

Mold

Mold removal and remediation are all about identifying and taking appropriate action to keep mold away from your buildings. The process of mold remediation involves preventing its spread in affected areas by removing the visible mold. We also boost this process by eliminating any moisture sources around the walls of houses. Mold in a basement is common because these places are usually wet.

Mold is known to have among other effects, irritants that can pose a health hazard around homes. It is important to contact a mold restoration company like us right away to aid in a mold clean-up exercise, especially if you own large buildings.

The mold remediation process is very important since it requires a reconstruction of the affected areas. The remediation process involves:

  • Assessment of the mold situation – Here the cause of the problem is established.
  • Containment – This is the immediate process after the affected areas are identified. The affected area is cordoned off to avoid having them spread to other areas.
  • Filtration – The air of the mold spores will be cleaned carefully because mold is not safe for health.
  • Removal and Drying- After the previous processes, the mold is removed from the affected areas carefully. The areas that have been cleaned must be equally dried since any more moisture is a breeding ground for more mold.
  • Repair – The affected areas are supposed to be repaired after the mold materials are removed.

The health risks of dealing with mold must be observed since it has irritating effects. A good number of types of molds are known to create health problems.

Fire Damage Restoration

Restoration after a fire can begin when your fire department tells you it’s safe to return. The first thing you should do is open windows and possibly turn on a fan to clear away any lingering smoke. Smoke is acidic as well as carcinogenic, and can also damage and stain surfaces. It can also contain harmful fumes from other substances destroyed by fire. At times smoke, and the water used to extinguish the fire, can do more damage than the actual flames. Proper fire damage restoration involves treatment for all three.

Don’t eat food that’s been exposed to heavy smoke. You may want to unplug appliances, remove valuables, and leave the home if smoke damage is extensive. Take stock of your belongings and take photos of the damages as soon as it’s safe. Unless the damage is slight, leave the cleanup to trained fire cleanup specialists. Rebuilding isn’t possible until proper restoration is done.

Cleanup Sewage and Restoration

When sewage backs up, this is considered to be an emergency situation and should be dealt with immediately. Sewers back up for a variety of reasons like tree roots blocking them, water in the basement or blockage in the service pipe between the home and city main. Cleaning them out provides an entry into the home drain system so clogs can be removed or pipes inspected.

Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Restoration

Drywall water damage happens quickly, and when not promptly treated and dried, it begins deteriorating and needs immediate replacing. In addition to absorbing water and swelling up, a primary concern with drywall water damage is the growth of mildew and mold, both of which are associated with causing several health issues.

In addition to drywall water damage, which generally occurs in a structure’s walls or ceiling as a result of a leaking roof or pipe, carpet water damage can be extremely frustrating as well. Since many carpet manufacturers void any warranties when water damage is visible on the latex backing, professional steam cleaning and ozonation is almost always needed. A water damage hardwood floor will require professional restoration as well. The good news is, whether you have a water damaged ceiling or a water damage floor, a quality contractor will be able to restore or replace both and have your home looking like new.
