How to Effectively Restore a Flood Damaged Basement in Your Raleigh Home

A flood damage experience should not bring your business or home to a standstill. By working with certified restoration service providers, you can still get your property back to its former condition. If you rebuild too quickly and make a mistake, then you are likely to experience recurring problems. For instance, if you did not notice a submerged wood in your Raleigh home, then future problems such as mold growth and deterioration of wall and wood coverings are likely to occur.

Our SERVPRO technicians inspect your building and determine whether it is safe to enter. We check out for structural damage and turn off electricity and gas services. We understand that flood water in Raleigh is contaminated and remove porous building materials and advise the owner to do a replacement. We have the equipment to clean and extract water from any flooded basement. When the depth of the standing water is less than an inch, we may decide to perform wet or dry vacuuming.

If our SERVPRO technicians are dealing with moderate and large flooding, we may use a sump or submersible pumps. Usually, the pressure of the pool of the water outside the building is balanced by that of the water inside the basement. We are careful not to extract the water so quickly when the outside of the building is still flooded since a significant pressure change may make the walls to crumble or crack.

After pumping out the water, it is time to perform basement cleanup. Our SERVPRO technicians wear rubber boots, gloves, overalls, protective eyeglasses and face masks as part of the safety precautions. We shovel out the mud before it can dry and clean the surfaces using disinfectants to lower chances of mold growth. Through dehumidification and installation of air movers, we can dry the wet locations.
