Standing Water in the Basement can be a Harmful Situation for Your Falmouth Property. 

Severe weather events are not uncommon for the Upper Cape Cod area, making a storm response for situations like flood removal vital for area homes and businesses. However, standing water and spreading moisture is only part of the flooding concern, as properties can also suffer the possible contaminants and bacteria associated with this natural disaster.

Water Removal Services for Damaged Basements 

Storm and flood damage for Falmouth properties can sometimes lead to standing water threats in areas like the basement. Acting quickly in these situations ensures that the appropriate measures get taken to remove this pooling and any solids or debris before greater harm results. Truck-mount pumps and trash pump units are typically the start of this extraction effort. 

Repairing Penetration Points for Flooding 

With a general contractor license, our SERVPRO professionals can do more to help recover a flood-damaged home. We have the means to provide repairs, controlled demolition, and reconstruction where they are necessary after a flood damaged property.

Treating Against Possible Mold Growth 

Natural floodwater is known for possible contaminants and bacteria, which can amplify and increase the likelihood and severities of microbial colonization. Treating surfaces likely to experience mold growth before colonies form or become visible can often remove these organisms from hosting materials while simultaneously making the surface uninhabitable for further colonization. Some of the options for this include:

  • Antimicrobial products
  • Sporicides
  • Biocides
  • Disinfectants

Flooding of Falmouth basements is more common than many homeowners realize. Water penetration into this lower level can result in widespread damage and a pressing need for quality restoration services. Our SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands team can help you make flood loss situations "Like it never even happened," when you call (508) 548-1011.
