Remaining calm is the most important thing you can do. The less stressed you are, the better you are to make a decision about your home.
Your disaster cleanup company will remove all the water from your basement with large pumps. They will then start the water damage restoration process.
Once the water has been removed, they will begin drying the area with large fans. They will also use infra-red equipment to ensure all water is removed, even water behind walls and under the floor. If this water is not removed, it could cause rot and mold to form. Once the area is dry, they will use specialized solutions to ensure no mold forms and that everything is free from bacteria.
