Basement + Water Damage = ?
What to do when you find water damage in your basement.
First things first. Turn off the power and unplug any electrical appliances. Take some time after this to be able to collect any salvaged items- prioritize your important documents, valuable items and electronics. Throw away anything that can no longer be of us. Note: at SERVPRO we have professionals who can identify whether any of your items are unsalvageable.
Next step, begin to remove water from your basement. You can go the traditional way, by using buckets and towels or choose SERVPRO to help. We use various methods the help you in the most efficient and productive way. From using pumps to bringing in as many dehumidifiers as needed. Note: the faster we begin this process, there is a higher possibility of avoiding mold growth.
