Mold Remediation >> Flood Damage

You come home and you hear water running and the first thing you think to yourself, ,"my basement has been flooded." Now, of course, having water in your basement is more than just a nuisance, it can be a health issue. Especially, if your basement includes finished living areas. When you have drywall on the walls, carpet on the floor, not to mention the cloth furnishings such as a couch, and chairs could be affected by Flood Damage.

  1. These are all places where Flood Damage will first breed. First thing to do is contact the water restoration website. It's reported that approximately 60% of the homes in the United States, that have basements have issues with the basement being wet. So don't feel as if you are the only one with this problem. If you intend on having this problem fixed the first thing you need to do is talk to reputable company about the restoration process. They will know how to talk to your insurance company. As many are finding insurance companies can be really difficult to deal with, and having the proper wording is essential.
  2. Since the Flood Damage restoration companies deal with the insurance companies all the time I find that it is best to let them tell you how to deal with them. Prices for this service can vary greatly depending upon the size in your basement, how much water is in your basement. It will also depend on how many furnishings are in your basement and the type of water that has been released into your basement. Obviously if it is sewage it will cost more to have the damage restored. Whether it was just a few inches or several feet, when the Flood Damage water finally recedes from your basement, you’re left with the nasty job of evaluating the water damages and planning for the clean-up.
  3. Recovering some your items, such as your major appliances, might require the help of a expert's. Your choices will vary on the source of flooding. If floodwater involved relatively clean basement leeching or lawn landscaping runoff, simple drying and cleaning might be an easy choice. But if sewage infected floodwater has entered into your basement, there might be some items you need to throw away. Your Flood Damage wall-to-wall carpeting, large area rugs, and rugs with foam back must be thrown away if flooded with sewage contaminated water.
  4. Excluding your valuable rugs, the time and expense of professional carpet cleaning, is not worth the time, money or health danger. Wall-to-wall carpeting saturated by somewhat clean rainwater can usually be saved through expert cleaning. If at all possible, try to remove the carpet from your basement to clean it since cleaning adds even more humidity to an already wet location. Carpet padding is almost impossible to effectively clean and must be replaced. If you can’t safely remove the carpet, dry it as fast as possible to reduce growth of Flood Damage. Use a shop vacuum if you can, a dehumidifier, could help you remove the excess moisture from the air.
