The Causes of Basement Flooding
The most common cause of basement flooding is groundwater that seeps in through the foundation, but it can also be the result of:
- Leaking basement windows
- Roof or gutter problems
- Poor grading or drainage
- Plumbing leaks
- Sewer backups
- Water heater leaks
- Sump pump failures
At RestoreUnow, we can repair the water damage caused by basement flooding and make suggestions that can help you prevent it in the future, such as sealing the foundation walls or installing a larger sump pump.
Our Flood Damage Restoration Process
By calling our team at RestoreUnow quickly after a flood, you can limit the water damage to your Frederick home and keep costs as low as possible. We are available 24 hours a day, and we can be on our way in less than 60 minutes. We feature advanced flood restoration techniques, and our process includes:
Inspection & Assessment
To determine the best course of action we must first identify the cause of the flooding and its overall extent. Our experts can use tools like infrared cameras and moisture meters to gauge the degree of water infiltration, even in hidden areas, and that will help us form a detailed plan for repairing your home.
Any remaining water will be removed as quickly as possible to minimize ongoing damage, reduce humidity, and prevent mold growth. We will use equipment like commercial vacuums, pumps, and fans to eliminate the majority of the water, leaving only residual moisture.
Cleaning & Sanitizing
With the work area free of water, we will clean and sanitize any areas that were flooded by rinsing the affected surfaces with 200-degree water. This will kill any potentially dangerous microbes that were deposited by the flood water, and any porous or hard-to-clean surfaces will be further treated by antimicrobial solutions, if necessary. We will warn you ahead of time so that you can keep your family and pets out of the work area to avoid chemical exposure.
Any remaining moisture will be drawn out with equipment like dehumidifiers, desiccant dryers, and negative air machines, leaving your home almost completely dry. We will verify the results with moisture readings and document our findings thoroughly.
With the home clean and dry, we will repair any damage caused by the basement flooding, returning your home to a pre-loss state. We can work with your insurance provider throughout the restoration to make processing your claim easier.
