Basement Water Removal Service in Boise & Meridian, ID
Water in the Basement
Why would water just appear in your basement? There are a lot of possible reasons. Thanks to their location at the bottom of houses, basements are prime spots for water damage. Here are some of the most common reasons for basement water damage.
Broken Appliance or Burst Pipe
Basements don’t always have the insulation that they need. That’s unfortunate, because Americans often keep certain appliances – like refrigerators and washing machines – in the basement. Basements also are usually home to several water pipes. So, what happens when these pipes and appliances get too cold? In some cases, they burst. When water freezes inside of a pipe, it expands and creates cracks. Once the water warms up and starts flowing again, it’s going to flow straight through those cracks and start flooding the basement.
Intense weather conditions can also flood basements. When a flood happens, basements give flood water the fastest path into the home. Flood water is particularly dangerous because it carries chemicals and sewage, so be careful if your basement is full of flood water.
Basements are also prone to groundwater flooding. The ground underneath your basement can handle a certain amount of water. When the ground gets too saturated, that water can push itself into your basement through cracks in the floor and foundation. Groundwater can be especially surprising because sometimes the lightest rain is all it takes to create a tipping point.
Sump Pump Failure
If you have a sump pump to keep water out of the basement, you expect that sump pump to do its job. Unfortunately, just like anything else, sump pumps can break. When they do, your basement is vulnerable to water problems.
We Can Help
No homeowner wants to deal with a flooded basement. It’s a stressful situation, but we have good news: Our team is ready to help. We’ve handled water problems of all sizes, and we’re prepared to handle yours, too.
Once we assess the situation, we’ll remove any standing water that has gathered in your basement. Sometimes, the problem is just a few puddles. At other times, a basement can have several feet of standing water. Whether it’s a puddle, a complete flood, or any amount of water in between, we’re prepared to remove it. We use state of the art sump pumps and other tools to remove the water.
Next, we completely dry the impacted areas by using powerful fans and dehumidifiers. Any water left behind can lead to a mold problem, and that’s the last thing you need when you’re already dealing with another disaster.
Mold Check and Disinfection
Speaking of mold, we’ll go ahead and make sure that it hasn’t started growing in your basement. Moisture activates mold spores, so if the water has been in your basement for a while, there’s a good chance mold has made itself at home. We’re trained to spot mold even when it hides in dark places, and we know how to remove mold effectively. We’ll also disinfect the area in the case of flood water.
