Where Did the Water Come From?
Aside from a burst pipe, there are two major sources of basement water: floodwater and groundwater. Either way, we’ll get rid of that water fast.
If you have floodwater in your basement, then it’s no mystery how the water got there. Now the important thing is getting it out. Floodwater is challenging because it contains all kinds of dirt, germs, and toxins. Things like gasoline and sewage can travel into your house via floodwater. When it comes to this type of water, you should never try to remove it yourself. By calling a professional team, you can avoid potential illness or injury.
Next, there’s groundwater. It’s much safer than floodwater, but it’s also more baffling. It can show up at the most unexpected times. Basically, the ground almost always holds some amount of water. When the ground gets too saturated, that water can enter your basement. Whether it’s just a few puddles or several feet of standing water, we’re here to take care of it.
If you have any kind of water in your basement, keep yourself and your family safe. Keep children, pets, and other family members away from the affected area. If the water has reached any electrical outlets or appliances, turn off the electricity to the impacted area. Then call Nu-Way Systems. Here’s what we’ll do once we arrive.
Extraction and Drying
First, we’ll have to get rid of all the standing water. We use high-powered sump pumps to get the job done. Once we’ve removed the water, it’s time to dry the space. We use high-tech fans, powerful dehumidifiers, and good old-fashioned towels for this part of the job. We know that water damage can wreak havoc on a home. The key to preventing damage is to provide a complete dry. That’s why we never cut corners. This step isn’t done until the space is completely dry.
Now that your basement is dry, we’ll clean and sanitize it. Water isn’t always clean. Like we said above, floodwater in particular can bring all sorts of toxins into your house. You need a team with powerful cleaning agents and safety equipment to remove these germs and toxins.
If necessary, we’ll rebuild and restore any damage that the water caused. Water is powerful and can damage all kinds of structures. Thankfully, our team is equipped to restore this damage.
Checking for Mold
Finally, we’ll check for mold and get rid of any that we find. If left alone, mold will not die on its own. As a matter of fact, it will keep growing and spreading. That’s why we nip the problem in the bud as quickly as possible.
