Did Your Basement Recently Flood?
Many Milwaukee area homes have basements. These rooms are sometimes unfinished, dark, moist, and gloomy. However, that isn’t always the case. In some instances, basements are finished and transformed into bedrooms, laundry rooms, or even game rooms. Regardless of which category your cellar falls in, the last thing you’ll want is for it to become flooded.
Yet, that’s exactly what could happen when disasters strike. What types of catastrophes? Well, that list could go on and on for just about forever, so we obviously cannot include every emergency here. But, what our team can do is provide you with some examples to see what kinds of things can lead to flooded basements. You may find a few inches of water in your basement, or the entire spot could be full to the brim because of these issues:
- Torrential Downpours
- Winter Storms, Especially Once Ice And Snow Start To Melt
- Leaking Water Or Drain Pipes
- A Burst Water Heater
Basement Flooding Can Cause These Potential Problems
After a flood occurs, a basement can sustain heavy damages. Drywall, insulation, and wood are some of the materials that can get ruined during an event. Of course, those items barely even begin to scratch the surface, though, as water can wreak havoc on pretty much everything. H2O can harm carpeting, padding, furniture, and more as well.
The point is this: if you’ve never been through a basement flood before, the situation can be pretty chaotic. Luckily, local homeowners don’t have to face them alone, though. Instead, they can contact us to schedule a professional basement water dry out service and get their place back in tip-top shape quickly.
Now, let’s look at some of the reasons why you should reach out to an emergency restoration company…
Professional Cleaning Benefits
Our technicians have the necessary tools and experience to extract the water from your basement. All of the moisture should be removed from the area to ensure that mold growth does not occur. It is never a good idea to let the fungus hang around indoors because that could cause you or your loved ones to experience allergic reactions. So, if you wish to prevent mold from becoming a problem in the first place, let us get the dampness out of your basement promptly. Our team will leave the room nice and dry, as it was intended to be, and you and your people will be kept out of harm’s way.
Don’t forget about the odors that will be floating about through the air. The smells after a flood can be almost too much to take. They are sometimes obnoxious and leave people feeling sick to their stomachs. Yep, you guessed it. Our team tackles and eliminates unpleasant odors too. Thus, don’t fret if your basement gets good and smelly following a flood. Rather, call us and kick that repulsive stench to the curb.
