My Basement is Flooding. What Do I Do?
There are a few steps you can take while you call Canstar Fire & Flood. Before we arrive to help, make sure to follow these tips:
Remove the Water
Remove the water as quickly and safely as possible. A wet vac is generally enough to remove some of the standing water. Purchase, borrow, or rent a wet vac if you don’t have one already. If the water damage is minimal, you can wipe it up with towels, but these must be cleaned and dried immediately once to avoid mould growth. If you have a basement that is prone to flooding, you should invest in a wet vac.
Dry the Area
Use dehumidifiers and fans to circulate air and prevent mould and mildew growth. For optimum air circulation, keep dehumidifiers away from your walls. To keep the fan running smoothly, clean and wash the filters every week. Keep your air conditioner on all the time. Any wet/contaminated boxes should be discarded.
Scrub the Floor
Scrub vinyl tile, linoleum, and other hard surfaces with a chlorine bleach solution. Wear rubber gloves and safety glasses during this process and keep the space well ventilated.
Examine Your Basement
Examine the stairs and drains in your basement. Remove any leaves, twigs, or debris that can cause your drain systems to fail. Remove the drain screen and clean it thoroughly.
Calling an emergency water removal business and getting aid from a professional flood damage cleanup service is the best method to deal with a flooded basement. Fortunately, Canstar Fire & Flood specializes in all types of flood and water damage restoration.
Our Flood Restoration Services
When you contact the flood damage restoration experts at Canstar Fire & Flood, we will send a team of expert, certified professionals to your home as soon as possible. We understand that the longer floodwater sits in your home, the worst the damage gets. That’s why we act fast. Our process includes:
Assessing the Problem
Identifying the source of floodwater and analyzing the possible danger is the first step in successful flood damage cleaning and restoration. Our technicians cannot begin the repair process until the source of the flooding has been identified and blocked.
Indoor flood water is categorized into three groups, each of which determines the amount of risk associated with dealing with the water. Sewage backup is most often the cause of water flowing from drains, toilets, showers, or the basement. Flooded basement cleaning typically involves water contaminated with germs such as E Coli, requiring the use of a qualified and equipped expert.
Before the full extent of the damage can be determined, our flood restoration crews will remove the standing water using pumps and other specialized equipment and techniques. This will alleviate some of the issues and allow us to begin the restoration process.
Restoration of damaged materials can commence once the affected area has been drained and cleaned. Items in the flood zone will be sorted into two categories – salvageable and non-salvageable by our team. Your property will be safe to reoccupy once contaminated drywall, wood, carpets, and other items have been replaced and salvaged, cleaned up, and inspected by our flood damage professional.
Causes of Flood Damage
There are many different causes of flood damage in our houses. Most of them come from inclement weather, but your home is designed to mitigate water and keep it outside where it belongs. Usually, something inside your home fails, causing water to accumulate. These can include:
- Leaking pipes
- Sump pump failure
- Sewage backup
- Roof leaks
During our restoration services, we will address the cause of the flood and help you reduce the risk of future flooding.
