What to do if Your Basement is Filled with Water

| Return |

Discovering your basement is flooded with water can certainly cause panic.

 

Find the Source

Unless this situation is due to a weather event such as widespread flooding caused by heavy rain or extreme weather conditions, you should identify and stop the source of the water leak right away. For instance, if you have a broken pipe, you need to turn off the water supply to your home immediately.

 

Contact your Insurance

Generally, people utilize their basements for two reasons: storage, or extra living space. If you use your basement for storage, its likely you have valuable items there including: sports equipment, unused furniture, holiday decor, and off season clothing. If you’ve finished your basement to increase home living space, you are likely even more motivated to start the restoration process. No matter how your basement is utilized, one overarching concern is going to be damage to the very foundation of your home. That is why your next step should be to contact your home insurance agent to promptly report the problem. You’ll need to verify how much coverage is provided on your policy.

 

Hire a Professional 

After stopping the water intrusion and understanding your coverage, it is critical to immediately contact a professional water damage restoration company for help. They will have the tools to clean up the water and restore your basement to a clean, safe, and once again usable space. Complete Restoration Services uses techniques of extraction, evaporation, and dehumidification.

 

Get Back to Normal

You may not be able to stay in your home during the water removal and restoration process, but you should be able to return within a week. The cleanup and drying time may require more time if there is carpet and drywall that need to be removed. The entire basement area needs to be completely dry to prevent the development of dangerous mold in your home.

 

Seeing your basement filled with water is admittedly overwhelming and emotional. It may seem too serious to fix. However, experienced professionals such as Complete Restoration Services in the Boise, Idaho area deal with this problem regularly. For emergencies, call Complete Restoration Services at (208) 794-9073 or for non emergencies, fill out our contact form.
