Why Wet Basement?

When Flood Affects your home or office - pipe leaks, water heater, sewage backup, roof leaks and mold remediation, call the experts at your Local Master Service Pro Cleaning & Restoration
A lot of people think that basement is the safest area in their house. It can probably be the safest part of the house but you also need to be aware of the things that might occur in your basement. Since you basement is planted on or under the ground, you must be conscious of the fact that your basement is surrounded by earth elements like soils. Now, if your basement walls and floorings are cracked, there will be a higher possibility that water absorbed by soil will be able to pass through these cracks, which will then accumulate in your basement area. Another reason why floods occur in the basement is because of the water pipes that were initially installed when your house was constructed. These pipes can also be damaged by earth elements like solid rocks as years pass.

The good news is that yes, it can be. Your home can be restored to its former glory, if you make the right decisions early in the game.

Dry Basement Adds value to you Home!

If you have noticed water seeping through your basement’s concrete walls and the floor, and if you have experienced a damp or flooded basement, or if there is moisture and condensation on the basement walls and floor; these can all be symptoms of water problems which may potentially result in serious structural damage to the foundation of your home. They may also indicate harmful molds and mildew and other major unseen hazards to your family’s health, such as unsafe levels of radon gas. This moisture may even cause stress cracks in the walls and concrete flooring triggering a cave-in, if it isn’t addressed immediately.
At Master Service Pros Water Damage and Restoration, we understand that it is very discomforting to see your Residential or Commercial place is flooded with water damage. Flood or water damage is usually unexpected, and can be caused by a variety of things, including broken pipes, washing machines, leakage and overflows from water heaters, refrigerators, roof leaks, dishwashers, sewer backups, and more.

Flooded Basement

If your house is flooded, and the source is your septic tank or sewage system, be very careful and call us Immediately. Raw sewage is extremely dangerous and can carry a multitude of infectious agents.

Remove items out of the flooded area as soon as possible if the water was not infected.

Call Us immediately to take action to Disinfect, wash and Sanitize the infected area.

Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Allow wet items to air-dry as quickly as possible to prevent rot and mildew.

Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.

All concrete floor, Brick Walls, Carpeting area, or tile floor should be sanitized as soon as possible to avoid spreading the bacteria in entire house.

Washable items should be washed and dried.

If you have carpet and it became wet, please contact Master Service Pro for advice on if it can be cleaned and dried properly. In severe flooding situations, it may be advisable to discard all carpeting.

Foam rubber mattresses and pillows can be washed, disinfected and air-dried in the sun. If in doubt that an item can be cleaned properly, it is best to discard it.

If your basement is finished with drywall and it became wet, it is best to discard and replace that portion to avoid the growth of mold. Some wood paneling may be salvagable if we can clean and dry it properly without it becoming warped.

Because electrocution is always a danger in a flooded basement, wait until the water recedes before you begin cleanup. If you decide to walk in the water, the electricity must be shut off at the main box.
