SERVPRO has the Professional Equipment to Tackle Any Size Flood Loss in Your Milford Basement 

Watching floodwater enter your basement is an exercise in frustration made even worse when your sump pump cannot handle the amount of water, or you never had the option for one. It is crucial to bring in professional help for water cleanup to minimize the loss to the contents and building materials in those cases.     

I Have More Than Two Inches of Water in My Basement, What Should I Do About the Flood Damage?    

As overwhelming as seeing flood damage in your Milford basement can be, there are many actions homeowners can take before SERVPRO arrives that can assist in lessening the loss such as: 

  • Turning off the electricity to the home if there is any danger of water coming into contact with outlets
  • Removal of boxes and items on the floor in the basement if it is safe to do so
  • Gathering clothes, medicines, money, and valuables if you need to stay elsewhere during the cleanup 

Once the techs arrive on-site, they have submersible and truck-mounted extraction units that make short work of the water removal needed. For muddy or slurry debris carried in with the floodwaters, we can set up powerful trash pumps for extraction.  

Can My Carpet in My Finished Basement Get Reused After Floodwater Cleanup?    

In most instances, glue down carpet that has had exposure to floodwater is a loss and requires disposal. The concrete substrate underneath needs to dry thoroughly before any new adhesive flooring sticks. SERVPRO techs accomplish this by using their advanced extraction equipment and then using the drying power in their air movers and industrial dehumidifiers to dry the basement as quickly as possible. 

When flood damage happens, call SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293. Our team of professionals stands ready to assist local property owners 24/7 and make the water loss in their homes, "Like it never even happened."
