Rapid Dry Will Restore Your Basement In No Time
Basement Flood Damage Restoration Process
Basement flooding is one of the worst water disasters you can encounter in your home and it usually happens when you least expect it. The experts at Rapid Dry are available for you 24 hours a day to help you when your basement floods.
As soon as you give us a call, we will send one of our flood restoration specialists to your property to inspect the damage and create a comprehensive restoration plan. This free inspection will identify the remaining hazards and the extent of the damage.
Guided by the results of our site inspection, we will begin the water extraction phase which entails removing any standing water from your basement. Our team utilizes our professional-grade water extraction equipment to quickly remove the water, effectively reducing the overall damage to your property and, as a result, the expense of the restoration.
Removing the standing water will give us a good look at the damaged materials that need to be removed. Depending on the severity of the flood, we will remove all the affected building materials, and other items, that have be damaged or saturated beyond repair from the water. This removal step needs to be completed before we can continue our restoration process. This step is very important as it will hinder any mold from developing.
When all of the floodwater has been extracted, and the damaged materials have been removed, we will begin the dehumidification process which will complete the water removal phase. At Rapid Dry, we are armed with the latest dehumidification equipment and drying systems that allow us to easily and effectively remove gallons of water from every material in your basement. We will run our equipment 24/7 until every part of your basement has returned to its pre-flood moisture levels, which will be tested and documented through specialized meters.
Floods don’t just cause water damage. Because of the nature of flood water, these floods often come with a number of serious health risks. In the case of a natural disaster, flood water damage is considered category 3. This means that the water possibly contains pathogens, diseases and other toxic substances, and should be handled as such. Because of this increased severity, our team of restoration professionals will clean and decontaminate every surface and every material that came into contact with the floodwater.
Flood damage is commonly covered by insurance, but to receive appropriate and fair coverage, accurate and clear documentation is a must. Throughout the restoration process, our team will take pictures, keep concise notes of work done, and provide you and your insurance adjuster with transparent records of damaged materials and our plan for restoring your basement back to its original state.
