Flooded Basement Cleanup

Flooded basement can be a nightmare to most homeowners. Basements are often hard to reach and it can be extremely difficult to extract water after a flood has occurred. Flood basement cleanup is a process that is done after the flood, and in most cases, you as an owner don’t have proper equipment nor expertise to conduct it.

Thankfully, flood basement cleanup companies offer this kind of service and you can hire them if you don’t want to fall into rabbithole of doing flooded basement cleanup yourself. 

The process of cleanup and the companies that do the process will be the main subject of this article, and we’ll talk more about them in the next paragraphs.

Flooded Basement Cleanup Guide

Even though flooded basement cleanup can be hard to do, professional companies follow a strict process of flood cleanup in order to treat the flooding problem in the best possible manner.

It consists of several different steps:

  • Identifying the source of the flooded basement
  • Flooded basement cleanup process known as flood water removal
  • Preventing basement flooding from happening

In the next parts of the article, all of these steps will be covered in further detail.

Causes of Flooded Basement

There are many different causes of flooded basement. Some of them are closely related to the negligence of your household, and those are:

  • Foundation cracks
  • Sewer system problems
    Appliance leaks
  • Burst or leaking pipes
  • Improper downspout locations

Other causes of a flooded basement may be because of the placement of your home and other different aspects such as:

  • Heavy rainfall or rapid snowmelt
  • House located at the bottom of a slope
  • House located near a natural water source
  • Drainage system failure
  • Water heater failure

It all depends from case to case, and calling a professional flooded basement cleanup service will help you identify the source and commence with the flooded basement cleanup process.

Flooded Basement Cleanup Process

The cleanup process is fairly simple and consists of several different steps that ensure water and moisture is removed from the affected areas:

  • Quickly remove affected items to avoid mold growth and put them outside to dry and sanitize them, in some cases even through them away if they are too damaged 
  • Completely drain and sanitize the basement
  • Mold removal
  • Make repairs
  • Clean sewage if needed

After the flooded basement cleanup process has been done, depending on the situation, you might need to also do something called a flood restoration – a process of restoring the affected premise and all damaged objects. Professional companies such as NYC Water Removal can guide you through the process, and help you restore your premises to the pre-flood state.

Preventing Basement Flooding

If a flood happens to you, you can rest assured that a professional flooded basement cleanup service will help you out. But, you should also know that you can prevent basement flooding in the first place, if you are proactive and follow some simple steps:

  • Clean your gutters and downspouts
  • Install an emergency generator and/or a sump pump
  • Acquire porous pavement around the house
  • Regularly check your drainage systems and plumbing

By preventing basement flooding, you will end up saying money that you would normally spend on flooded basement cleanup. Be aware that flood repairs can get expensive, so it’s better to think in advance.

NYC Water Removal did an amazing job on removing the damage in my kitchen as a result of a water leak. Everyone I dealt with was professional, courteous and kept my best interest at the forefront of the job. They managed to finish the project in only a few days, always keeping me up to date with progress along the way. I am so very pleased with my experience with NYC Water

David Torres

He was very responsive to my water damage needs and came out, last minute, to assess and treat my damages. In addition, he regularly followed up with me to ensure that he was attentive to my water damage needs. Heaven forbid this happens again; however, I wouldn’t hesitate to call him again. Great work

Maureen Reeves

We hired NYC Water Removal team for a mold remediation and rebuild project in our downstairs rec room. The team was courteous and highly professional and the work was top notch as usual. This was our second time using their services and they will continue to be our first call in the future. Highly recommended.

Michael Kroonenberg

I had a couple of separate water incursion issues into the basement of my home. One was a slow leak from the main kitchen sink that caused damage to the ceiling of the basement bedroom below. The other was a small leak through the foundation during heavy rains, resulting from grade issues at the exterior of my house. I obtained a few quotes and from the onset, the crew from NYC Water Removal… was very professional and thorough with his inspection and quote, so I decided to go with NYC Water Removal… and I am very pleased that I did.
