Safety Matters When Dealing with a Flooded Basement

Electrical Dangers from a Flooded basement

If your fuse box hasn’t been affected, shut down the power.  You might need to use something like a mop handle to switch-off the electricity. Do not make contact with the water while shutting down the power.

Bio Hazards from a Flooded Basement

Along with the water in your basement, there is also now floating dirt, bacteria and nasty germs that have mixed with the untreated water. Mildew and molds also like to make dark places their homes. You don’t want to inhale any mildew or mold spores.

Proper Water Removal Techniques

Very deep water can create pressure on your basement walls. Draining the water too quickly could cause your basement walls to crack or even cave in. It is always best to hire an experienced and professionally trained water removal expert to remove the water as quickly as possible, with out causing further damage to your home or basement.

Clear the Flooded Area

Once the flooded area is made safe, move the objects that are in the way like boxes, furniture and rugs. Water damaged items should be removed from the area for proper drying.

 Call ServiceMaster by Williams before you simply decide to tear out the carpet. We may be able to save you the cost of a whole new floor covering job.

 Now that everything has been removed and moved to a drier area, it’s now time to act with deliberate speed. You don’t want bacteria to grow, mold to sprout, and mildew to foul the air in your basement.

  • If you have windows, open them to allow continuous airflow.
  • Gather every fan you’ve got and move them downstairs.
