Basement Flood Extraction and Drying in Portsmouth Homes

5/23/2019 (Permalink)

Don't let your basement, extra living space turn into a Harbor.

Let SERVPRO help you keep that extra living space dry as possible.

The basement area has served a specific purpose for many Portsmouth homeowners over generations of time, though now many of these same properties have finished this area to convert it into usable living space. With new construction materials like drywall and vinyl wood flooring, the battles that many homeowners face with moisture and dampness in this lower area become even more taxing and potentially damaging. Without the appropriate measures taken to prevent moisture penetration and seeping dampness from beneath the flooring or from the foundation blockwork, homes can find themselves allowing flood effects into the property during severe weather events.

Protecting the affected materials and structural elements in the basement of your Portsmouth home after flood damage can often be more complicated than you might think. Our SERVPRO professionals have extensive training and education from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to become certified Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) capable of handling all facets of restoration and recovery when flooding occurs in your house. We can also dispatch qualified personnel to address potential mold effects that could result from prolonged moisture and dampness.

Whenever the point of penetration is, swelling and bloating of the affected construction materials like drywall and flooring can happen in as little as a day. Addressing these structural concerns is a priority of our SERVPRO professionals and is a considerable portion of our mitigation strategy that begins with our arrival at your house.

In many situations, the need for extraction and the threat of contamination can cause our technicians to remove saturated materials from the basement to better access the worst of the damage. We can then directly remove standing water in wall cavities or other affected areas without access limitations. Our contractors have years of experience in the building trades, allowing us to repair and reconstruct removed areas of your finished basement quickly.

While basements are more often used as additional living space in modern construction throughout our area, addressing flooding in these areas of the property must happen quickly. Our SERVPRO of The Seacoast professionals have the experience and equipment to make flood effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (603) 433-4300.
