Rapid Flood Water Extraction from a Basement in Nashua
Experts estimate that a whopping 98% of basements in the United States suffer some water damage during their existence. Because of this, it is crucial for New Hampshire homeowners to be prepared for flood damage and take precautions to preserve their basements.

Even during power outages, technicians can bring their power supply and pumps to extract massive amounts of water and prepare your home for extensive sanitation and cleanup. SERVPRO also works with insurance adjusters and property owners to ensure that we provide your cleanup per your policy.
Protecting an Unfinished Basement from Flooding
Assess the risks
While it is cheaper to restore an unfinished basement after flood damage, make sure you know exactly how much it can cost you in the event of a disaster.
Collect items on wall shelves or in overhead storage units to minimize water exposure during a flood. For bulky items, consider adjustable plastic pallets placed on the floor to add extra water protection.
Ensure easy access
If you need to grab things and take them out of your basement, organize them with lighter things on top and more massive things at the bottom. To avoid items falling and potentially causing injury, do not store containers above chest level.
SERVPRO Restores Structures
For unfinished basements, a common concern is an effect that this type of disaster can have on the flooring. Concrete floors are quite resilient with effective cleanup techniques. Because concrete is porous, however, it can also fall victim to mold growth without proper remediation, so technicians can go in with HEPA vacuums to clean. These vacuums feature filters that can pick up dirt as small as 0.3 microns in diameter, a mere fraction of a human hair, which averages 40 microns. Technicians can also clear the surface after vacuuming with an EPA-registered disinfectant to prevent the proliferation of mold and other contaminants.
