Massachusetts Flooded Basement Drying and Cleanup Services
Nobody likes a flooded basement. Fixing it by yourself is a huge hassle. Sometimes a flood in your basement is caused by one catastrophic event brought on by nature. An unexpectedly huge storm can wreak havoc on a home. Even in a situation where it is likely a one-time event, the cleanup and repair can be a huge hassle to take on yourself. Even just trying to negotiate and deal with your insurance company can be a nightmare. Many people will assume that they have coverage for such an event, but that isn’t necessarily true. Often, only if a homeowner has a flood insurance rider will a flooded basement from a storm be covered.
Other times, your basement could flood due to some kind of plumbing problem. With winter upon us, the cold weather has come right along with it. Older homes don’t have the kind of insulation that newer ones do, and frozen pipes are certainly not unheard of. Frozen pipes often lead to burst pipes and excessive water damage. For people who only use their basements for storage, this might go unnoticed for enough time for there to be substantial problems from the water.
EMERGENCY WATER REMOVAL AND DEHUMIDIFICATION SERVICES
Some people just live in an area that is more prone to flooding basements. Living in low lying areas or even at the bottom of a steep hill can cause your basement to flood regularly if you don’t have a proper drainage system in place. Over time, that water that keeps flooding your basement can actually cause your foundation to erode, resulting in structural damage. Regardless of what is causing your basement to flood, it isn’t something that can be ignored or that you should try to handle yourself.
Taking care of a flooded basement may seem like an easy thing to do, but there really is knowledge and skills that are necessary to effectively deal with the problem. Removing the water, and drying everything out may not be difficult, but finding the source of the problem and making sure that all the damage is repaired can be. Sometimes water may have been sitting unseen for a while inside your walls or foundation. That burst pipe might have had a slow leak that soaked all the wood behind your walls for a long time before it broke and flooded your basement. When living in an area with a high water table, that water can be seeping into your foundation for a while before it finally begins to erode the cinder blocks and find its way into your basement.
