Sump Pumps Mitigate and Can Prevent Water Damage to Basements in Merrimack--SERVPRO Advice

In Merrimack Basements, Water and Moisture Removal Are in the Field of SERVPRO Expertise

You might think that your basement gets built like a fortress, impenetrable and sturdy. Well, possibly the when your Merrimack house got constructed, but time has a way of wearing things down and causing them to fail in areas. Once even small amounts of water can penetrate portions of your foundation, the passing fluid breaks away and erodes more and more of the mortar joints holding the blocks together. Soon the small amount of water that could find its way in has become quite a high volume. The hollow cells of the block can also hold and hide large amounts of water and moisture.
Before you know it, you desperately need help combatting the wet basement area of your Merrimack home. While initially, the shock of pooling water in your basement (or even just excessive dampness) might seem overwhelming, when you know whom to call to help, the task is anything but insurmountable.
Many people are unaware of how professional restoration services can help them to overcome trouble they might experience in their basements. Our SERVPRO technicians are concerned primarily about getting the area dried out and restoring the damage to vulnerable areas that have allowed for water penetration. The restoration job itself is not complete without providing lasting solutions to keep the same thing from happening again shortly.
While instances of flooding in your basement are best remedied with the use of equipment like sump pumps, preparing for this kind of gear is something that is also best left to professional outfits. Proper installation requires the flooring in the basement to be adequately graded to move water to the pump's location, even though most of the work that a sump pump does is removing water that pools along your home (or underneath it) and prevent it from getting into the basement.
In many cases, even with the source of the water damage handled by our SERVPRO technicians, it is advisable to utilize dehumidification equipment in the basement. This device pulls the moisture out of the air and can prevent compounding disasters like lingering water damage with fungal growth. Sufficient ventilation and a keen eye can prevent problems from occurring.
Finding the right solution for your wet basement is not a decision that you have to make alone. You can trust the experience and professionalism of the technicians we have at SERVPRO of Merrimack. Our emergency response team is available 24/7 by calling (603) 262-9293.
