Where there are extreme rains and flash floods, backups of storm or sewer lines, broken and overflowing appliances, there are basements flooded with water. Basement flooding happens without warning, and leaves home and business owners with a devastating mess that can lead to permanent, costly property damage and health threats to the building’s occupants if not properly and immediately treated.

- Assess the Damage – Once onsite we assess the extent of the damage and develop our water removal and cleanup plan. We also locate the source of water entry into the basement and take whatever step is necessary to stop any more water from flooding your basement.
- Identify the Water – We identify the type of water that has flooded your basement according to IICRC standards for categorizing floodwater. This identification is based on the water source and potential levels of contaminants and hazards it may contain. All Flood & Fire’s basement water removal process addresses any level of contamination that may be present in the water, whether it’s from a broken appliance in the basement or kitchen, a storm or sewer line backup, or stormwater that has entered the property from outside.
- Classify the Flood – We classify the flood type according to the extent of water damage that has occurred. This involves checking the amount of water present and the levels of dampness and moisture, for example, in and behind walls. We inspect carpets, walls and wall insulation, ceilings (if the water has entered the basement from an upper story) and any surfaces such as concrete, brick, or hardwood that require a specialized type of drying.
- Basement Water Removal – Using high-powered equipment, our technicians work quickly to extract the water from your basement. We make sure to reach every corner of the basement so that no water remains to cause potential threats from mold.
- Basement Dry Out – Once we confirm all water and moisture is eliminated, we use moisture-detection equipment, heavy-duty air movers, and drying panels to thoroughly dry the area. We also perform HVAC cleaning and HEPA vacuuming to eliminate airborne contaminants which increase the threat of mold.
- Clean the Contents – We properly dispose of items that are not salvageable and get to work restoring everything else. We clean carpets and floors thoroughly, and catalogue and remove other items offsite for proper cleaning. We ensure all items are decontaminated, sanitized, and deodorized for the safety and health of your family and other building occupants.
- Basement Water Restoration – If structural damage has occurred in your basement we will provide construction and renovation services upon request to restore your property to its pre-water-damage condition.
