As the lowest point of your home, basements tend to flood first during any emergency dealing with water.

With our rapid response, your walls, floors, and personal property will have a much better chance of being restored to its original state.
Sources from outside or inside the structure can cause water intrusions to your basement. Excessive rain can over saturate the ground, which results in hydrostatic pressure. This happens when the moisture outside your basement or foundational wall is greater than the pressure inside. Since water naturally seeks out lower pressure, this can result in foundational leaks, and even cracking. We use professional equipment at SERVPRO to efficiently and quickly remove the water before it begins to cause damage to your structure and other, secondary water problems. We will also bring in dehumidifiers which work to get rid of any moisture and start moving the air to assist in drying out your basement. Once the water and moisture are entirely removed, we clean, sanitize and treat the basement with an antimicrobial agent to ensure that you don’t experience any mold growth. We work with you each step of the way and can also work with your insurance company so that your claim gets processed as fast as possible.
