Cleaning Floodwater from Unfinished Bridgewater Basements

Natural flooding can introduce debris, sediment, and other solids to the basement of your Bridgewater home. While water in this situation can spread quickly throughout this level of the property, the proper mitigation and cleaning techniques can help to regain control of the disaster and reduce preventable loss. Between extraction, drying, muck out services, and cleaning, we can make flood losses “Like it never even happened.”

Before restoring elements of flood damage to Bridgewater homes like debris and potential contaminants, our SERVPRO professionals must focus on removing standing water. With natural flooding scenarios, unfinished basements can allow for substantial penetration. Following these disasters, homes in the direct path of migrating floodwater can battle several feet of standing water. Our technicians have premier equipment to help, including a wide array of extraction tools.

In situations where debris is known to exist, and a higher volume of water is present, we can utilize our extractor trucks. When hooked up directly through the truck-mount pump, we can discharge floodwater into sanitary sewer systems or culverts. With continual discharge, these powerful extractors can work at levels of 300 psi to extract thousands of gallons of standing water until debris removal and cleaning could be practical to begin.

Muck out and cleaning work together with controlled demolition. In many situations, portions of exposed wood framework joists beneath the floor must get cleaned with biocides and disinfectants. This sterilization can remove the potential for widespread biothreats and the development of mold colonies. We can also clean and dry concrete floors by first shoveling out mud and debris and working with pressure washers and cleaning agents to restore the floor to its original condition.

After a flooding incident, any homeowner can contend with substantial debris, mud, and other solids. Cleaning up after this loss can require a wide array of proven techniques, cutting-edge equipment, and potent products. Our SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters team can help with a fast response to begin extraction and debris removal as promptly as possible. Give our team a call anytime at (508) 697-5439.
