Oakton VA Flooded Basement Cleanup Service
In Oakton, Virginia, it isn’t uncommon for a homeowner to find the unwelcome surprise of a flooded basement. It’s easy to clean up a small puddle from a washer that malfunctioned, but it really isn’t a good idea for a homeowner to try to clean up a flooded basement by themselves. Besides it being a horribly time consuming task, it doesn’t address the problem that caused the flood in the first place. If the water is allowed to sit, even for a short time, it can do some serious damage to your home and your belongings. Rapid extraction of the water and industrial drying techniques will protect your home by preventing further damage. Water and moisture create an optimum environment for mold growth and standing water is often contaminated with bacteria such as E Coli, both of which can present health hazards to you and your family.
Water will, over time, erode the foundation of your home, which will of course cause more serious problems in the future. It takes a mere 48 hours for mold to begin to grow when it has such an optimum condition such as water and moisture. Erosion of your home’s foundation and mold can be minimized and often prevented completely when the homeowner contracts with a basement flood professional, who has the industrial equipment to quickly extract the water, and then dry out your basement completely.
