How SERVPRO Restores Water Damaged Finished Basements in Falmouth
Recovering a Falmouth Finished Basement After Substantial Loss
Several inches of standing water can present a uniquely damaging scenario for the subterranean levels of Falmouth homes. Our technicians have encountered many finished basements that required substantial water loss recovery. Recently a local home needed our efficient extraction approach and restoration tactics to make their disaster “Like it never even happened.”
When we approach a situation where flooding or substantial water removal for Falmouth finished basements is necessary, we assess the conditions quickly. We have multiple avenues that must get addressed immediately in the mitigation phase, including removing exposed furniture and contents to prevent their destruction. This recovery effort in this flooded basement required a fast response from our professionals. Our technicians safely address submerged objects like surge protectors and the residential dehumidifier. Powered electric outlets and machines can be a danger to occupants of the house and our SERVPRO technicians first arriving on the scene.
Expect that simple water extraction in these situations is not sufficient for recovering your finished basement. Upon arrival to this standing water, our professionals deployed the highest efficiency extractors available to our technicians, including the use of the engine-driven extractor truck and our gas-powered trash pumps. These extractors provided continual water removal without requiring reliable electricity.
Flood cuts to the drywall are needed, with structural cavities also receiving the same standing water concerns. Our air movers and dehumidifiers have better access to these cavities, with portions of damaged drywall removed. With lower flood cuts, we can utilize our low-profile air movers to access these spaces and protect installed construction materials as much as possible.
Drying mats remove moisture and saturation from the vinyl plank flooring where it could stay installed. Our moisture detection equipment verifies the presence of dampness pockets to prevent lingering water damage that can develop into microbial threats.
