Basement flood cleanup can take many forms in Nashua homes, from extraction to mold remediation. 

The basement level of Nashua homes is often one of the most readily and heavily affected areas of the house when natural flooding occurs. As fast as floodwater can infiltrate the lower levels of the property, it would be best if you had reliable water removal tools and equipment to overcome it. Few mitigation strategies and approaches would precede the need for flood water removal.

How Can Standing Water Get Removed? 

Flood removal in the basement of Nashua homes involves several tools and pieces of equipment in our inventory. Much of these choices depend on the severity of the flood damage and the threats to contents and exposed vulnerable structural elements. Trash pumps and truck-mount extractors often play the fastest and most consistent role after flooding to clear standing water and reach the point where drying could be effective.

What is Necessary for Contaminants and Mold Threats To Get Resolved? 

One of the significant threats and concerns withstanding floodwater is the contamination that is often present. Because rising waters and flash floods cause sewer mains to back up and overflow, as well as chemicals and other substances that can be collected by migrating floodwater, treating contaminants and mold organisms is a necessary means of protecting structural elements of the basement and flooring supports for the main living level of the house. Wet cleaning approaches often include:

  • Sporicidal products
  • Biocides
  • Disinfectants
  • Sanitizers

As overwhelming as flooding can be to the basements of affected homes, our fast-responding team of water restoration specialists can help. We can overcome storm damage and start flood restoration shortly after arrival. Trust our SERVPRO of Nashua team to make flood loss “Like it never even happened,” when you call (603) 889-2311.
