The Principles Of A Flooded Basement Cleanup
Experiencing a flooded basement is not anyone’s idea of a good day. Whether your basement is used for storage, is vacant, or is built up into a recreational area, you have a real project on your hands.
A flooded basement area can occur from a leak in the basement wall, a broken water or sewer pipe, backup of sewage from a main line, or a genuine flood of a general nature. Regardless of the cause, if you have any level of standing water in your basement, you must be sure not to touch the water in any way or step into it. There may be electrical connections that are still live under the water which could prove fatal if you contact it.
Rather than cleaning and restoring the area yourself, you would be wise to step back and ask a professional water restoration company to come in and take care of this for you. They will have the expertise and the necessary equipment to process the situation in the safest and most effective manner.
You may be asked by the water restoration company to relocate yourself and your family for a few days, as even breathing vapors from the water can be dangerous. Flood water can contain raw sewage, E-Coli, bacteria, viruses, chemicals, fertilizer, pesticides, and petroleum products. Coming into contact with water with these items can even make people sick.
The water restoration company will first remove the standing water, and the more quickly this is done, the better, as this helps to eliminate further growth of mold and bacteria. High speed pumps are just the ticket for this project.
Once the water is removed then the drying process begins. Large box fans are used here, and this can take a few days for the area to be completely dried. This is also important for stamping out mold and bacteria, as they both feed on moisture.
The the area must be cleaned and sanitized, and special equipment is used for this. Items such as furniture, cushions, rugs, carpeting, padding, drapes, drywall, and anything else that will hold water must be thrown out, as some things are impossible to get completely dry.
If you were to attempt this yourself, you could be partially successful, but the area where you might run into trouble is getting the area completely sanitary, as you could lack the expertise and equipment to to a thorough enough job.
