Do you have water in your basement? What you should do…
Posted on 9:25 am by indiana_restoration
If your premises have experienced a flood, storm or even a plumbing accident, your basement could flood and result in severe water damage. Prompt action is essential to remove water from the basement and ensure thorough water damage cleanup. The two things you need to do immediately:
- Minimize the extent of water damage by calling the professionals immediately. The sooner they can come in and remove water from the basement, the better. By completely drying it out in an prompt and efficient manner, you will reduce the risk of any superficial water damage turning into serious structural damage. Inward bowing walls and cracked foundation walls are expensive repair jobs and you want to avoid having these problems on hand.
- Prevent secondary water damage with the help of a professional water damage cleanup team. Carpet water extraction and drying out of walls and flooring is critical. If you don’t properly remove water from the basement, further and more extensive water damage can occur. This will likely result in mold and mildew growth and structural damage to the underlying building foundation.
