Flood damage basment SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians are ready at a moment's notice. Call now!

Clearing basement flooding in Bellmore homes gets vital restoration, and construction efforts started. 

The basement is a common location for flood damage to target, and our SERVPRO team has powerful extraction and drying tools ready to mobilize fast when storm damage strikes. Our Green Fleet can arrive shortly after you call to begin vital mitigation work. 

Removing Floodwater from the Basement Floors 

One of the initial steps and stages of restoring flood damage in Bellmore homes is to remove standing water and pooling from the house. Water collects quickly in this lower level, even when the penetration point is the main floor of the property. We must use more powerful extraction tools to overcome the longer discharge and intake lines necessary to reach this underground level. 

Identifying Damaged Structural Elements 

The presence of floodwater often indicates a vulnerability already exists in structural elements of this lower level, but further investigation is necessary to determine where other build-back and repairs might be needed. With a general contractor license, we will help perform needed building services in areas like:

  • Masonry
  • Finished Carpentry
  • Concrete
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing

Protecting Contents and Preventing Mold Growth

While it seems like restoration professionals would prioritize removing surface water and protecting exposed elements, there are other critical mitigation services necessary to preserve what matters most with content relocation. Reducing the possibility of mold damage keeps the house's occupants safe and prevents irreparable harm, so treating a surface with mold inhibitors can help. 

The basement can be a welcoming target for migrating floodwater. From vulnerabilities that might exist in the foundation elements of the property to invading surface water concerns that settle in this lowest level, our SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh team prioritizes a fast response to mitigate loss.
