Getting Fast Treatment for Your Wet Basement in Nashua
SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Equipped with Tools to Help Detect Hidden Water in Your Home's Basement or Crawlspace
Storm flooding can often impact the basement of a Nashua home more than anything else. Floodwaters naturally move to the lowest point in an area, which is almost always the basement in homes that have one. Areas wet in a basement in Nashua usually include stairs, floors, molding, and walls. These floodwaters are usually unclean and can develop mold and bacterial growth quickly in the dark, controlled conditions of the average basement. Cleaning the area out after a storm is rarely an easy feat, and may require some of the heaviest equipment in SERVPRO's arsenal.
If the wet basement in your Nashua home still holds standing water, which may be highly likely due to a lack of escape routes for the water, it probably requires pumping to be removed. We use industrial-grade water extractors for this purpose, as large volumes of water cannot be left to air dry for fear of massive structural damage. Our work is not done once water has been removed, however, because the entire basement is most likely still soaked. We bring in a retinue of air movers and dehumidifiers to hasten the natural air drying process and eliminate any remaining moisture from the area.
Time is especially important for our work with basements. In the dark, climate-controlled environments of most basements, mold can proliferate quickly. Fast water extraction and special treatments are critical to slow or stop the growth of mold in your home. If the worst comes to worst and mold takes root in the home, SERVPRO technicians carry appropriate certifications to handle it in an insurance-friendly and professional way. In addition to the threat of mold, timely mitigation and restoration work helps to work against structural damage, as some of the worst effects of a flooded basement can only set in after hours of exposure to standing water.
