Basement flooding can be a bigger issue than other types of flooding. The materials used in basements are generally less permeable than the rest of the property, and basements are generally below ground, and have less ventilation than the rest of a property. This means that water is more likely to collect in a basement, and will be more difficult to remove. Basement Flooding Removal involves the draining of excess water from the basement, cleaning the basement of debris, and drying the basement out using special drying techniques.
Basement flooding can magnify into greater problems. The water can seep into the insulation of the property, or deteriorate the foundation of a structure. Furthermore, the lack of porosity in a basement and the difficulty of water extraction can lead to excess water, and to that water can easily be left standing for extended periods of time.
This can lead to severe problems, as mentioned in other sections, such as the water problem spreading throughout a structure. One of the most dangerous things about standing water is the growth of mold and bacteria that it causes. A basement with too much water, especially if left standing, can become a severe health risk.
Don’t let your property become a risk to your property or your health. If water has invaded your basement, it’s important to respond quickly, and begin water removal and water damage restoration as quickly as possible. It is best to begin the process within 48, if not 24 hours of its occurrence.
