Flooding of your home is a major disaster. What do you do? Who do you call? Should I try to clean this up myself? You will have a lot of questions running through your mind. Start off by remaining calm. A flooded basement can ruin your day, but a disaster cleanup company will be able to help. 

  • What Should I Do First?

The first thing you should do is contact a disaster cleanup company. They will be able to advise you on what you should do and will be out to your home quickly to assess damages. After you contact a certified disaster cleanup company, gather your insurance information.

  • Insurance Information

Your insurance information is important, as it will tell you what is covered under your policy. Your disaster cleanup company will ask for this information and will file any insurance claims for you. 

  • Don’t Freak Out

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. 

  • Water Extraction

Your disaster cleanup company will remove all the water from your basement with large pumps. They will then start the water damage restoration process. 

  • Water Damage Restoration

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. 

If you have a flooded basement, don’t worry. Disaster Cleanup Serviced will return your basement to its original form in no time at all.
