The MD Water Damage Restoration’s crew follows a precise 6-step process when handling any basement flooding problem:
- Assess the damage to determine the extent of flood damage in your basement. We shut down the electric power if necessary, then locate the source of water entry into your basement and, take steps to stop the entry of any more water.
- Identify the water type so as to properly treat your basement flooding situation. We categorize the water according to IICRC standards based on the water source and potential levels of contaminants and hazards.
- Classify the flood based on an assessment of the entire area of your basement that has been flooded, in particular looking at the amount of water and the levels of dampness and moisture. This inspection includes a look at the carpet and carpet pad, the walls and wall insulation, and any surfaces such as concrete or hardwood that require a specialty type of drying.
- Remove basement water using high-powered, professional-grade water-extraction equipment that is both portable and truck-mounted, and also submersible pumps when necessary. Specialized equipment locates areas of potential threats from mold so we can implement an appropriate plan to prevent an infestation.
- Dry the basement using moisture-detection equipment, heavy-duty air movers, and drying panels. We first salvage whatever items we can, then clean, sanitize, and deodorize all water-damaged areas and furnishings. To eliminate airborne contaminants which increase the threat of mold, we also perform HVAC cleaning and HEPA vacuuming.
- Renovate post-cleanup to correct structural damage, paint walls, whatever it takes to ensure your basement is restored to its original, pre-flood condition.
