SERVPRO Helps Pump Out Basements as Part of Our Water Removal Services

If the flooding in your home also includes an inundated basement, it might delay your plans to resolve the flood damage loss. Elevating water from the basement can prove an insurmountable challenge, especially if mixed with sewage or if the basement is full of junk.

The flood damage in Patchogue basements may require several steps to resolve completely. After removing the water, you might need to shovel out mud or silt, teardown surface materials such as carpets, and dry the concrete substrate. Disinfecting the area helps finish the process. Our SERVPRO technicians can help ease these processes while handling water extraction for you. 

It is Easier Because we Offer Several Other Services Apart From Water Removal, Including:

  • Biohazard remediation
  • Sewage cleanup
  • Rodent clean up services
  • Basement flooding cleanup

Using high-pressure pumps easily overcomes the high head requirement when removing water from the basement. Our SERVPRO technicians also use self-priming trash pumps which readily remove residue-filled water or slurry. Our crews wear protective gear such as bodysuits, rubber boots, and heavy-duty gloves limiting exposure to contaminants. 

After removing standing water, it is essential to dry the basement to avoid secondary moisture damage such as mold, which thrives in wet, dark areas. If your basement is finished as a regular room, drying simply requires the placement of air movers and dehumidifiers. However, if it is unconditioned space, additional steps, including setting up a closed drying system, are necessary to help with moisture management.
