Can You Reduce Water Penetration into Nashua Basements?
Choosing the right restoration professionals for a wet basement in your Nashua home can often come down to which technicians provide lasting solutions. In addition to this critical reformation of your property to reduce recurrences in the future, you also must find a team of professionals that can address the acute effects that have become immediate threats. Reducing the penetration of water into your basement is an excellent first step, and our certified team of restorers can help.
While there can be many restoration teams to choose from, our SERVPRO professionals can do more to dry and repair the wet basement in your Nashua home. Because there are so many avenues that moisture and water can follow to get inside your home, combating these effects can often feel like a never-ending task. With the right tools and equipment, our technicians can learn more about the penetration of this water and devise the best strategy to prevent further intrusions.
Moisture detection devices and discovery tools are an essential element to a thorough and accurate inspection of the affected areas. Our professionals choose from a deep inventory of these advanced tools, including hygrometers, thermal or infrared imagery, and moisture sensors for areas like the carpets, baseboards, and walls. We can isolate areas of cinderblock that may be damp and harbor liquid in their hollow cells. This knowledge can also help to determine where the most significant moisture concentrations exist, so the points of penetration can get more easily discovered.
Reducing water penetration involves discovering these precise points and working to seal them up with permanent fixes. Compromised masonry can often become a vulnerability for your basement, and the solution for these breaches involves sealing the points with a compound like hydraulic cement. If you know where water enters your basement, you can attempt this initial repair on your own. There are many quality products available in home improvement locations in the area. In many cases, the efforts of the homeowner might still be insufficient.
A dry basement, free of lingering dampness provides a healthier indoor air quality. The contents stored in a typical basement also are safer from rotting and developing mold colonies. We can provide sump pumps, and exterior sloped grading for rain run-off, and more.
We can continue to search for other avenues of moisture penetration and work to seal these up through products or controlled demolition and reconstruction. No matter how regularly you combat a wet basement, our SERVPRO of Nashua team can help. Give us a call today at (603) 889-2311.
