Basement flooding is usually certain in cases of heavy floods. This is because water usually follows places with least resistance. This is how water gets its way into your basement! Water in the basement is one of the situations many would not wish to encounter.
The causes of a flooded basement include an insufficient drainage line along the basement of a building, storms, or even faulty water pipes. After such an unfortunate incident, there is a need to move with speed and conduct a flood damage cleanup at the basement.
To clean up the basement, you need to first remove the water. This may not be easy as the basement flood cleanup is rather hectic. First, we select the equipment with consideration of whether it is a minor or a major flood. The next step is to start removing the water, by focusing on areas that are more likely to get damaged fast. We also start with the highest area since it has the least pool of water to make the workload easy. The third step is to dry the affected area. If there are windows, there is need to keep them open to allow moisture to escape the building. We use fans to make the process faster.
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.

Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall Water Damage Restoration
When drywall is damaged by water, you’ll see brown stains, buckling, or blistering. The same is true of water damage to ceilings, including wood or tile. This may come from a leaky roof, requiring roof repairs as well as water mitigation. Replacing drywall is usually necessary. Painted surfaces may hide water stains. You may want professionals to check for mold and hidden moisture before repairs begin.
Carpet must usually be removed and replaced, including the carpet pad. Inspection of the subfloor should also be done. Call in a professional to assess the damage. Sometimes carpet can be salvaged with special cleaners and equipment, or only damaged areas replaced.
Calling a professional can reduce the time and trouble it takes to take stock of damage, initiate repairs, and get your life back to normal. Always document the damage and check with your insurance agent to see what’s covered. But above all, think safety first during and after home disasters.
