SERVPRO Tips and Services for Nashua Properties Storm Damage
Having a wet basement after a storm runs through your area could mean quite a few problems, some that you may not be able to deal with on your own. You might find yourself looking for a professional restoration company for help with a solution to restore your property after an event.
If you find yourself facing a constantly wet basement due to storm damage in the Nashua area, we are here to help. We have a variety of expertly trained technicians well versed in the necessary services to get control of excessive moisture in your home or business.
Regardless of your situation, you need to understand that all basements are prone to flooding. Water itself always runs from high to low ground, meaning that under the right circumstances your basement becomes the sauna or swimming pool that you never wanted.
At SERVPRO we find that torrential rains are the most common culprit in basement flooding. Excessive rain over relatively short periods of time can overload basement waterproofing systems and saturate the ground underneath your basement, pushing up through the cracks in your foundation.
A properly waterproofed basement should have tar sealant on the inside and outside of your foundation walls, as well as what is known as weeping tile installed to help prevent situations like this from occurring. Weeping tile helps pull water into the local sewer system, keeping it away from your home.
If the systems installed fail or cannot handle the water load, your basement floods quite easily. A quality restoration company, like SERVPRO, can recognize the problems you face and install necessary drains, pumps, and redirects, including grading in your yard, to help channel rainwater away from your home.
Sewage backups caused by clogging or broken sewer lines can also cause basement flooding. Most local home builders install sewer tie-in lines to combat situations where this happens, allowing dirty water from tubs, toilets or sinks to escape through a line lower than your basement. In the case of septic tanks, other issues must also be dealt with to insure a return to safety.
In communities where flooding is common, installing sump pumps into basins drilled into the floor of your basement act as a fail-safe, pumping excess water out of your basement. SERVPRO can install these submersible pumps and provide you with back-ups and other services during an emergency.
Often helping you avoid many costs associated with water damage restoration and helping you return your home to a quality pre-damage condition as quickly and efficiently as possible.
