Lexington KY Flooded Basement Cleanup Service
Flooded basements are sadly a common occurrence in Lexington, Kentucky. A flooded basement is a nasty surprise for any home owner, and in most cases it catches the home owner unaware. Some people try and clean up the flooded basement themselves with a wet & dry shop vac but this can take hours if not days, and this does not address the damage caused by the water, nor the source of the flooding. it is not advisable to try this method however, as there is a high risk of electrical shock and death. The longer water is allowed to sit, the more damage the water will do to your homes building materials and contents. With basement flooding, a rapid water extraction and clean up is critical to avoid long term property and content damage. Basement flooding is also dangerous, as this water is most often contaminated with biological contaminants such as dangerous bacteria such as E Coli.
A flooded basement can easily damage the foundation of your home, wearing away at the concrete or stone of the foundation and weakening it. The water can also add moisture well after the standing water is removed to your basement, creating the prefect breeding ground for toxic mold, such as black mold. Mold can easily start to grow after the first 48 hours of basement flooding. Mold once it takes hold can be extremely difficult to remove, and will often require a expert to be called in. Mold can be prevented however with quick water extraction and rapid and through drying of the basement with industrial strength equipment. Most basement flooding is caused by faulty washing machines, plumbing, storm damage, sump pump failures, flash flooding and sewer backup into the home.
