Your Amherst Basement Is Restored to Functionality with SERVPRO's Help

Wet basements occur in roughly 60% of all Amherst area homes, at one point you have had, or are going to have a problem with water or moisture in your basement. It can ruin the space, regardless of whether you use it for storage, or have taken the time to turn it into a fully-livable area. When you ignore moisture, it can eventually saturate your framework, lead to corrosion, mold, and rot.

There are a few hurdles that make it tough to reclaim a wet basement in your Amherst home. However, with the help of a quality restoration company, you can rectify the situation. So, before you get trapped in a problematic situation that has you replacing carpeting, drywall, furniture, and other belongings, on a regular basis, think about these helpful hints that make dealing with moisture, easier.

Take the time to have a professional, like those offered at SERVPRO, inspect your basement for common problems. A trained eye can spot more, and we have the equipment to help locate hidden moisture that might cause problems in the future. All it takes is moist air circulating through the area, making contact with cool foundation walls, or uninsulated piping to create a clammy, uninviting atmosphere.

By controlling the humidity levels and condensation that enters your basement, you can avoid issues that create wet carpeting, or rust, and corrosion to appliances. You need to ensure that the area has enough ventilation and in some cases, install a dehumidifier that helps reduce the relative humidity, keeping your basement nice and dry. Water-proofing applied materials to the exterior, even below grade, can help prevent the intrusion of ground water.

Our professional technicians at SERVPRO can help you seal cracks in your foundation walls that allow ground water to seep in, install proper ventilation, and dehumidifiers that contribute to maintaining a quality environment.

SERVPRO technicians can also make repairs to your roof flashing, gutters, and downspouts that allow rain runoff to enter the area. We use waterproofing products designed to keep runoff away from your home and can go as far as improving the grading of your property, or install additional drainage, backflow valves, or even submersible pumps if necessary.  

Stop suffering from constant water problems in your basement, give SERVPRO of Merrimack a call, today. (603) 262-9293\
