Troubleshooting Your Nashua Wet Basement

When your basement is soaked after a storm, call SERVPRO for drying out and remediation services.

SERVPRO Technicians Start With a Thorough Assessment Before Remediating Storm Damage in Your Home

Severe weather is a situation that many Nashua homeowners are unfortunately familiar with facing. More than this, steady rainfall that does not happen in torrential downpour waves can also pose threats to your home in different ways. Storms of all shapes and sizes can leave you with cleanup and restoration needs.

Many homeowners might not even recognize that they have a problem until they come across a wet basement in their Nashua residence. This sign is usually an excellent indication that water has become able to breach the foundation blockwork of your home, or at the very least has found a path through the concrete flooring of the area. Either one of these issues needs to get addressed as expediently as possible to prevent worsening conditions.

Penetration of the blockwork can be an indication of weakening mortar joints and pathways that only worsen over time. The more water to pass through the blocks, the less resistance this water has in reaching the interior of your home. Our SERVPRO professionals can help to identify these penetration points and often repair them with hydraulic cement if the damage is not too considerable. This solution can stop the flow of water into the basement.

There are other instances where water can leach into your home through the concrete floors via cracks and broken areas. Our SERVPRO technicians can utilize specialized dehumidification equipment to gently pull the moisture from this flooring without making its current damage worse. If sump pump installation is ultimately deemed unnecessary, continued use of dehumidification equipment in the area might be recommended if the moisture persists from beneath the house.

A wet basement can lead to multiple concerns for a homeowner. Not only are you allowing the possibility of mold growth on organic materials in this area of your house, but you are also running a continual risk of material damage to flooring and walls in the lower levels of your house. Let our experienced SERVPRO of Nashua restoration professionals help you to clean and dry this mess. We are available anytime by calling (603) 889-2311.
