What are the causes of basement flooding?
Flood damage can be frustrating to most property owners, especially those who do not know what to do. Our technicians can help you handle the storm flood damage in your Nashua property. We also offer emergency cleanup services after storms. It is essential to know the common causes of basement flooding to take preventive measures. Some of the common causes of basement flooding include:
Poor basement sealing: During the construction of your property, the basement foundation and tiles require proper sealing. If it was not done correctly or deteriorated with time, water from the ground could begin to seep into your basement.
Poor downspout installation: Downspouts direct water away from the structure and its foundation. However, if the downspouts are missing or broken, water can pool next to the home.
Gutter debris: Gutters are vital in moving water away from the property. However, clogged gutters with twigs and seed pods can stop water from moving off the roof, away from your home.
How can you extract the water effectively?
Water extraction is an essential task that speeds up the drying process. We use our state-of-the-art equipment to speed up the extraction process. However, we first have to inspect if the floodwater contains debris and dirt. If the water is clear, we can use an electric submersible pump powered by our portable generator. The pump eliminates the suction lift limitations and provides continuous quiet operation. It can move up to 1000 gallons of water per minute through a 4" to 2" hose. The machine extracts the excess water leaving only moisture behind. We can eliminate the moisture using air movers and dehumidifiers.
How do restorers get rid of odors in crawl spaces?
Our technicians understand that odors in crawl spaces may get into your home even after cleaning and thoroughly drying the property. Since it is challenging to maneuver crawl spaces, we can use the Aquafog Cherry Deodorizer to thermal fog the crawl space. The product gets into small cavities and cracks to combat odor molecules.
Floodwater can devastate and frustrate homeowners, especially when the secondary damages begin to occur. Call SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 to get your property to its preloss state. “Like it never even happened.”
