If Your Basement is Flooded You Need the Professionals at SERVPRO of Northwest Spokane
We don't like to think about it, but our area is susceptible to long periods of intense rain which can cause flooding even in the most well-built basement. Finding standing water in your basement can be a homeowner's worst nightmare.
Quickly Remove the Water
If there is standing water in your basement, your first reaction will be to find a way to remove the water. This will require a wet vac at the very least and some sort of pumping system at the most. Many homeowners will have a wet vac, but very few will have any sort of pumping system beyond their overwhelmed sump pump. Getting the water out of your basement quickly helps to prevent further damage. It's one good reason to call the experts at SERVPRO of Northwest Spokane. Our water damage restoration teams have specialized equipment to remove the water--no matter how much--from your basement.
Dry the Surfaces
After the standing water is gone, it's important to quickly and thoroughly dry all the surfaces. This includes flooring and walls. Drywall will likely have to be removed just above the water line for the drying process to be complete. SERVPRO of Northwest Spokane has industrial-grade drying equipment that can accomplish this task much more quickly than anything available to a homeowner. Getting things dried out quickly helps to prevent further damage and discourages the growth of mold. Our technicians are also equipped with professional-grade moisture detection equipment to make certain that hidden moisture is also removed.
Inspect HVAC and Other Basement Equipment
It's possible that the flood water damaged some of your HVAC system or appliances. SERVPRO of Northwest Spokane can evaluate these damaged items and recommend action.
