Schenectady NY Flooded Basement Cleanup Service
Flooded basements are not uncommon in Schenectady, New York. Sometimes the clean-up can be easy, like when a slop sink accidentally overflows or a washing machine malfunctions. More seriously flooded basements are not something that the average homeowner should try to clean up themselves. It would not just be an unreasonably time consuming task, but without figuring out what caused the flood, the problem is likely to recur. Not dealing with your flooded basement quickly can not only damage all your belongings the water touches, but your home as well. E Coli often contaminates standing water as do other bacteria, and standing water is nearly a perfect environment for mold growth. For these reasons and the potential for structural damage, a homeowner will want to have the water extracted and the basement dried thoroughly. Within 48 hours, mold can begin to multiply if the conditions are good, and wet, moist basements are optimum for mold growth. It’s easy to see how water damages dry wall, but the wooden frame of your house can also be damaged from the water and even your foundation will erode over time from basement flooding. The damage from mold and water can be minimized and future flooding can often be prevented completely when the homeowner calls in a professional with the right equipment and experience to deal with the problem.
