Especially during wintertime, you may experience a basement flood in your home or business which can be very hectic and expensive. Porous materials such as building materials like wood and drywall, furnishings, and carpeting can get damaged from absorbing the water. When flooding occurs, you should act quickly and call for professional help to remove the water, and the affected areas should be cleaned immediately to prevent further water damage.
Monroe Restoration in Fort Wayne, IN provides full flood damage restoration services. We have advanced equipment and tactics to remove standing flood water from your basement. Then, we clean the water-affected areas and complete any required restoration.
Water Damage from Flooding
Extensive damage can happen in a flooded house because of the amount of water involved. The most prominent damage following a flood is mold. If the porous materials at home stay wet for longer than two days, mold growth is inevitable and mold spreads easily in a moist environment. Mold also causes serious health problems like respiratory diseases, stuffy nose, sore throat, and itchy eyes.
In addition to the risk of mold growth, flood damage can cause structural problems. If wood or drywall absorbs too much water, major structural damage can happen. Foundations and basement walls can be shifted, settled, or separated by the flood.
There is also a risk that flooded water in your basement may contain sewage. Sewage contamination can cause permanent damage to the affected materials. You should stay away from sewage water and call for professional cleaning help.
