A flooded basement is a very common form of water damage. Basements by design are vulnerable to water damage because they are built below ground and are constantly fighting water infiltration.

 

Most modern homes are equipped with a sump pump system in the basement. These systems are great ways to manage the water around the foundation of your home until the sump pump fails. Common ways the pumps fail:

· Lose power
· Circuit Breaker Overload
· Too much Water to Handle too Quickly
· Reach the End of the Life

Basement water removal can begin as soon as the sump pump system is working properly. This may require time for the power in the area to come back on or time for a licensed plumber to replace the old sump pump.

When a basement floods water can rise as high as 6 to 12 inches. The sump pump system, once working, will remove a large amount of this water. We can help speed up the process with an additional 2-inch submersible pumps.

Once the bulk of the standing water is removed by pumps, the water that has saturated the carpet and pad needs to be removed.

Water Removal Process

Water Removal is an essential service in the residential and commercial water damage restoration process. Most of the water will be removed from the building using professional and commercial grade water extraction equipment and pumps, to pump out the standing water.

Flooded basements are common water damage problems in Greenwood, and we can bring extractors and pumps to remove the standing water from the wet carpet or concrete floor.

All of our water removal services will be covered by your insurance company if are filing an insurance claim for your water damage. Once the bulk water is removed from the building, we can begin the drying process.

Prevention

There are some things a homeowner can do to help prevent common water damage. If a homeowner has a finished basement, then typically they have a sump pump system protecting that basement from hydrostatic pressure. This pump is the only protection from a basement flood and should be replaced every 3 to 5 years.

It is also good for homeowners to know how to shut the water off to their home. There should be a hot water shutoff on the water heater and a main shut off where the water enters the foundation of the home.

If you have a broken water pipe, the water will continue to flow until you shut off the water at the main shutoff.

Building Material FAQ’s

Many customers ask us the different building materials that can be saved and the materials that are removed and replaced when affected by water damage. Below are some common building materials that we talk with customers about.

Carpet is a very porous building product and will dry out very well if the pad and carpet are properly extracted. If the carpet pad is not extracted well, it can hold a lot of water and may be very difficult to dry.

Drywall is another building product that can dry during the water mitigation process. Depending on the building’s construction and types of materials near the drywall, it can be dried and not removed.

Batt insulation is always removed if it saturated by water. Batt insulation is installed in exterior walls and garage ceilings. When the insulation is wet it will not dry out…trust us we have tried.

Flooring products that are always removed after being after by a flood or water damage are laminate floors. The laminate floors that are made with any wood-based products will not dry out during the water mitigation and will be removed and replaced.

Other flooring products such as engineered hardwood floors, hardwood floors, ceramic tile, and vinyl sheet floors will most likely be removed if they are installed on top of plywood or OSB subfloors. Some of these products are not affected by water damage but in order to dry the subfloor properly, they need to be removed.

If you are placing an insurance claim, all these items will be covered in the claim and replaced to its pre-loss condition.

When we work with our customers through a homeowner’s insurance claim we make sure that the only out of pocket expense is their deductible.

Post Water Damage Cleanup

After the water is cleaned up, from storm damage or a burst pipe, we can begin using water damage equipment to dry the structure back to the original moisture content.
The drying portion of the water mitigation process includes running fans, dehumidifiers, and heaters to remove the remaining water out of the building materials. This process can take 3 to 5 days.

When the drying process is completed after 3 to 5 days, the water damage repairs can be completed. If we are working with our customers insurance company, there will be a delay between the dry out and the water damage repairs because estimates need to be approved by the insurance adjuster.
