Westerly RI Flooded Basement Cleanup Service
Basement flooding happens. Some people might never have to deal with the stress and aggravation of a flooded basement, some might have it happen to them only once, and for others, it seems like a regularly occurring event. Regardless of which of those categories you fall into, knowing how to handle a flooded basement and the dangers it can bring is something every homeowner should be aware of.
Basements can flood for various reasons. A sewer back-up, a broken pipe or other plumbing issue, a malfunctioning sump pump or even just some severe weather can all cause a basement to flood. For the homeowner, while the cause certainly does matter, the immediate need to deal with the flooded basement tends to take priority. If it doesn’t, it should, because that flooded basement can cause a lot of damage, not only to the personal belongings it may soak, but to the structure of the home. A flooded basement is not something a homeowner should try to deal with on their own unless they are experienced in such matters.
There are multiple issues to consider when dealing with a flooded basement. Extracting the water and drying the area thoroughly tend to be on top of the list and trying to remove the water yourself using a shop vac and some fans is going to be tedious and time consuming. Then there is the issue of trying to locate the cause of the water problem. Sometimes, as in cases of sewer back-ups and severe weather, the cause is an obvious one, other times, such as plumbing issues might not be so easy to ascertain. Finally, repairs must be made and measures taken when possible to avoid future basement flooding. Very few homeowners have the knowledge, experience and time to do all of these things themselves, so finding a qualified expert is really the most reasonable course of action.
