A Basement is A Common Place for Water Damage in Malden Homes.

The basement is a storage area, a utility room, or added living space for your home, depending on the construction that has been done. When water damages strike, this portion of your property can become heavily impacted. We must answer a few key questions during restoration. 

What Caused the Damage? 

One of the initial concerns about water damage in Malden basements is how the disaster occurred. There are dozens of causes of significant water damage events, so determining the reason is an important step in planning the restoration to come. We have effective recovery solutions between repairs and water damage cleanup to contend with multiple loss effects simultaneously. Pre-job scoping can identify what caused the water damage.  

What Can Clean Up the Water?

Between deep standing water and surface moisture concerns, water cleanup is the job of multiple tools in our restoration inventory. Often extraction comes first with vacuums and pumps. However, specialty drying equipment is also needed when moisture becomes trapped in the porous building materials of the house. 

Are Contents at Risk? 

Many use the lower levels of their home for storage, so when standing water is a concern, these exposed contents can be destroyed. Quick protective actions prevent irreparable harm, providing these affected items with the precise restorative measures necessary, including:

  • Relocation
  • On-site cleaning
  • Drying
  • Pack-out restoration

Are Repairs Needed?

Especially in finished basements, water damage can be heavily detrimental to structural elements. Repairs and reconstruction are often required, making it critical to have a team prepared with a general contractor license. Our professionals have decades of experience and training in build-back services. 

Flooding and water damage in the basement of your home can be a challenging situation to restore. Our SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose team is ready to help 24/7 when you call (781) 665-6396.
