Remedying The Wet Basement In Your Milford Home

Milford Area Basements, Storms, and the Solution for Water Removal and Drying--SERVPRO

SERVPRO Provides Dehumidification and Water Removal from Wet Basements

While your Milford home is no stranger to substantial storms moving through the area, the ability of your house to ward off the damaging conditions should be a constant concern you have. Arguably, most homeowners do not even realize that their foundations have become compromised until the water is already leaking or pouring into their homes. Fortunately, this is not a situation that you have to face on your own.

While your basement area might not get the same kind of heavy traffic that the rest of your house does, it is still important to ensure that this area stays dry. A wet basement in your Milford home can cause considerable damage in a short period, not to mention allow for worsening conditions like microbial growth. The physical deterioration of furnaces and heavy appliances like washers and dryers can also occur.

From the moment that our SERVPRO team arrives at your home, we begin assessing the full scope of the damage to your basement area. Namely, we are looking for the source of the dampness or present water and aim to repair this breach. Thermal imagery can indicate the presence of water trapped in the blockwork of your foundation, which gives our technicians an opportunity to drill weep holes to drain out these blocks and reseal these holes with hydraulic cement.

Portable sump pumps can extract the present water if it pools throughout the basement. Drying the area is one of the most critical steps to any of our water restoration work, and in these cases, concrete flooring often requires specialized equipment to remove embedded moisture. Our SERVPRO professionals use LGR dehumidification equipment to draw out moisture from the concrete slowly as not to damage its integrity. The key to successful dehumidification is monitoring and drawing out the trapped moisture in a steady manner.

While there are plenty of reasons why your basement might be persistently wet, you can always count on our professional restorers to help you identify the source and remove the water. We have the tools and experience to help prevent this problem from recurring and to restore the damage it has caused. You can reach our dedicated SERVPRO of Merrimack team anytime by calling (603) 262-9293.
