Basement leaks are most likely to be discovered after a rainfall has passed. When you discover that your basement is leaking, give Leaky Basement a call or send us an email. Make sure to photograph or videotape the leaks and the areas where they occurred. It is not only beneficial to us, but it is also beneficial for insurance purposes.
The clean-up will entail removing any nearby goods that could be harmed by water, such as carpets, MDF or particle materials, and other valuables. To avoid electrical shocks, be VERY careful while removing devices that have come into touch with or are submerged in water, such as appliances, power bars with plugs, or any other electronic equipment laying on the floor. In the event of a large-scale flood, it is essential that you hire a water restoration company to handle the clean-up right once to avoid health dangers from the water that has entered your property.
Even after the water has been removed, disinfecting the areas where the water has been touched is critical, as this water may pose a health risk. Any compromised drywall should be replaced after any form of foundation repair, including our own exterior or interior waterproofing treatments, to minimize the spread of mold spores and other hazardous microorganisms that could affect your health.
