In Short Pump, Virginia, it isn’t uncommon for a homeowner to find the unwelcome surprise of a flooded basement. If you are looking for answers but don’t know who to call, look no further. Here at Fire Water and Storm Pros of Virginia, we have been in the business for over 30 years helping residents get their homes, and their lives back on track. Water in your home is a very time sensitive issue. This means that the longer that you let the water sit in your basement, the more damage will come to your personal belongings, as well as the building materials in your home. 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. Obviously, you know when your home is flooded that there is damage to the building materials such as the drywall, wood paneling, and even the carpet. But what you may not know is that there could be underlying issues to the plumbing system, or even the electrical wiring in your home. Water damage in your basement can weaken the structure of your home, and that is why it is always best to call the professionals in this type of situation. 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. We have all of the right tools, including state of the art equipment and certified technicians, to get the job done quickly and efficiently. We have been doing these jobs for over 30 years, and have the experience to get the job done right.
