Do You Struggle with a Constantly Wet Basement in Merrimack?
Lasting Solutions for Wet Merrimack Basements
Some Merrimack homeowners struggle with keeping parts of their property dry throughout the year, which can cause damages and potential hazards for those living in the house. The basement can prove especially challenging when the house must contend with the saturated ground surrounding the foundation walls or water seeping up through the concrete floors to make the area persistently damp.
Finding solutions that can not only address the immediate concern of the wet basement in your Merrimack home but also help to safeguard it from moisture and water damage in the future is not as difficult as it might seem. With the proper professional assistance, like our certified SERVPRO technicians, we can address the immediate damage to the materials in this affected portion of the house and install equipment or modify the basement's layout to divert water.
Water Damage Restoration Steps
Our SERVPRO professionals first assess the severity of the situation by determining the full measure of the water damage. Next, we closely inspect exposed materials for any signs of mold growth to prevent spores from colonizing and causing more substantial damages to the basement. Finally, we can work to prevent any future growth of mold colonies by spraying potential host materials with an antimicrobial spray which makes the material uninhabitable for a colony to use.
While our crew works tirelessly to dry out the current saturated materials and environment, we also determine the best solutions to prevent recurrences moving forward. Assessing the structural weakness of block-work and repairing it can be an effective step. We can also install a sump pump and direct water and moisture to this device with new grading to the concrete flooring. This pump can successfully divert water away from the basement and only runs when it has water to remove, keeping it working better and saving you money on added utility costs throughout the years to come.
Many homeowners think of the immediate problem and address the damage that has already occurred rather than safeguarding for the future. Our SERVPRO of Merrimack response team can use the full measure of our talent and experience to restore your property and protect it from mold growth and water damage for the future. (603) 262-9293.
