SERVPRO Says Sump Pumps Help Protect Nashua Area Basements

Why You Can Count on SERVPRO to Cleanup Your Nashua Home's Wet Basement and Get it Dry Again

While the weather in Nashua overall keeps snow and ice from disappearing altogether, substantial amounts melt. When this happens near homes, the ground surrounding the foundation can quickly become saturated. Cracks that generally cause no problems in the lower portion of your basement can let in this otherwise trapped water.
We want to help homeowners in such situations, which is why SERVPRO is always ready to help get your wet Nashua basement cleaned up and adequately mitigated. Wet basements are notorious for problems with mold infestations, excessive humidity in all areas of a house, and damage to stored belongings.
Our arrival at your home signifies the end of these problems. We use extraction methods that remove the water currently present. Our team can install a sump pump and ensure the trough around the perimeter is clear of debris, so any newly deposited water enters the sump pump.
As both concrete floors and concrete blocks making up the walls can retain water, we need to manipulate the environment, so these materials dry out. We increase both the temperature and how fast the air circulates through the area. The air currents inside a basement do little to facilitate drying, so our efforts provide a crucial change.
Proper drying of a wet basement requires additional heat, but turning your home's thermostat up does not give us the environment we want. Not only does it whisk off humidity from the basement and force it into the rest of your home, but it also makes it uncomfortably hot in your living area. We bring heat-producing equipment to increase the temperature in enclosed areas without affecting the rest of the house.
Once the air in the basement becomes warmer, it can hold additional moisture. We pull the moisture out of the harder materials like brick, concrete, and cement with air movers that continually dry the exterior of these surfaces. Because moisture seeks drier conditions, not only does absorbed moisture continually move toward the exterior of materials, but our desiccant machines endlessly pull that same moisture out of the air.
We can help you maintain a dry basement, so your home's environment remains within the normal range for humidity. This helps protect your house and belongings until basement waterproofing specialists can make the necessary repairs to your foundation and basement walls and floors.
SERVPRO of Nashua has the equipment a wet basement emergency calls for, and we can help keep the area dry, so secondary damages of several kinds do not cause additional harm. Call us at (603) 889-2311 when you notice puddles of water on your basement or cellar floors.
