My Basement Is Flooded, What Next?

8/21/2020 (Permalink)

Walking downstairs to wash a load of laundry and after a few steps, you encounter water engulfing the lower level of your home. A boatload of emotions begins running through your mind as you reconcile your previous task with the present circumstance. Take a deep breath and let's work through this together as a team. 

The first thing to do in the event is to shut off all power to that area. Water is a conductor for electricity and attempting to inspect the damage beforehand is highly discouraged. Once the electricity has been shut off having the water damage mitigated is the next step. That’s where the SERVPRO of Greensboro North team comes in. Our team of expert water cleanup professionals is equipped with an arsenal of tools to mitigate the damage before remediation and eventually repairs begin. 

It’s critical that you reach out to our team quickly concerning this sort of damage. Failing to do so may result in mold growth. Wet and dim conditions such as a flooded basement are the preferred breeding ground for mold. Mold may impact the integrity of your home and may cause negative health effects. Getting our team out to your property may be paramount to preventing this sort of scenario. 

If your home or business is in need of our services whether for fire, water, or mold damage; perhaps even deep cleaning services, call the experts today – SERVPRO of Greensboro North, 336-379-1772.
