What Are The Steps In Fixing A Flooded Basement?
Fixing a flooded basement can be more time intensive than waterproofing a basement that is already dry. An investment in preventative maintenance is definitely cheaper and faster!
However, there are many cases where a flood will strike unexpectedly and will have to be dealt with using the best techniques that are available. While this does take longer than waterproofing, there’s no need for it to be a long and arduous process.
Steps In Resolving A Basement Flooding Situation
Step 1: Evaluate The Situation
Sometimes, the cause of a basement flood is clear — for example, a summer storm, thawing ice after winter snows, and so on. In other cases, the disaster could be attributable to your ground water or other issues, which have to be accounted for in any strategy to dry the basement.
Step 2: Get The Basement Dry
At AA Action Waterproofing, we prefer to let gravity do the work in making sure that your basement gets completely dry. This makes things much faster and much more effective. Using the natural slope of your basement, a French drain can dry things out faster.
Step 3: Consider Foundation Repair And Mold Remediation
Depending on the volume of water and the amount of time that it was standing in your basement, you might benefit from either of these two services. Mold remediation is the more immediate of the two — mold is very dangerous to people and pets! — but foundation repair can also be crucial.
Steps 4: Basement Waterproofing
Most people who’ve suffered through a basement flooding don’t want to do it again! We can provide the best prices for waterproofing, bundled within your drying and other services.
