Cleaning Up Basement Flooding in Amherst Homes

The basement can be a common location for water damage and flood restoration needs in Amherst homes. This lower level can become overwhelmed by standing water and surface moisture concerns when situations like burst pipes or appliance malfunctions occur. Basement flooding can also result from failures that allow for water penetration from the outside. Fast water removal services, including submersible pumps and wet vacuums, can overcome these several inches of pooling liquid to begin critical drying efforts as soon as possible. 

Are Ceiling Repairs Needed in Amherst Homes After Leaks?

Burst pipes cause immediate damage to Amherst homes, but slower leaks and roof vulnerabilities can create long-term moisture concerns for properties. Ceiling repairs are often necessary after a longstanding leak from pipes positioned between the floors of your home. Our GC license can help with any reconstruction and repairs your property might require.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
