What Hazards Exist with Basement Floodwater in Hartford Homes?

When a storm hits your basement and floods it out. Call the team at SERVPRO for all of your storm damage mitigation services needed.

Flooding can Introduce Several Threatening Hazards to Hartford Properties. 

When a flood enters the basement of your home, Hartford properties can suffer the presence of more than a pool of floodwater. The faster that our SERVPRO professionals can remove these threats, the less destructive these disasters can be for the property. 

Threats of Standing Water in Basements 

Standing and trapped water can often be one of the pressing indicators of flood damage in Hartford homes. The rapid reduction of pooling water is critical in reducing moist conditions that facilitate microbial threats. Regardless of the type of flooring in the basement level of your residence, we have extractors and attachments for these units to manage surface water quickly, such as:

  • Squeegee Wands 
  • Wet Vacuums 
  • Carpet Wands 

Removing Contaminants and Bacteria 

Natural flooding can introduce many threatening substances and contaminants to the house. Intruding groundwater gets treated as a blackwater event, including sewage, chemicals, and bacteria. Cleaning surfaces and contents utilize strong sporicidal products and disinfectants in our inventory to neutralize these threats before greater harm and volatile conditions result. 

Microbial Growth and Degradation

One of the potential threats of basement flooding is the facilitation of microbial threats and mold colonies. Microbes and spores are naturally occurring in nearly all environments, awaiting moist conditions to have ideal conditions for colonization. Treating surfaces with antimicrobial products can often inhibit this growth and the subsequent structural degradation. 

Flooding is not a unique restoration need for area homes and businesses, so it is something that our SERVPRO of Newington / Central Hartford team stays prepared to handle. With our commitment that We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, we can meet the needs of damaged properties with efficient water removal, drying, and cleaning options. Give us a call today at (860) 667-9191.
