Having your basement flooding is undoubtedly one of the most stressful and destructive events that your home or business can experience.
If your home or business floods, you are probably wondering what to do with all of the water, the mess and the damage to your property. You may think that you can just clean up the water and deal with the damage yourself, but flood cleanup is no simple matter. It is something that should be undertaken by experienced flood cleanup professionals.
The team at One Way Environmental Solutions is here to help you get your home or business cleaned up as quickly as possible.
Cleaning up after a flood on your own can cost more than you think. The obvious cleanup expenses include purchasing the tools that you will need to remove the water and clean up. Buying cleanup items like towels, sponges, fans, cleaning supplies and a sump pump will cost you hundreds of dollars. However, the real costly problems are the ones, which may not be obvious – namely mitigating the mold that will grow if the flood is not cleaned up properly and quickly. Most people do not realize that during the time that your property has been flooded, hazardous mold can quickly grow and spread.
Floods and leaking water pipes can lead to flooding of your basement and to a big problem for you to deal with. It is important to have professionals deal with your flooded basement as soon as possible because it can lead to major structural damage if not dealt with properly. Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that mold problems can set in after the first 24 hours that the basement flooding occurs. Because of this, it is important that you contact the team at One Way Environmental Solutions so that we can clean up all of the water, dry out your basement and then use our state of the art cleaning techniques to restore your basement and prevent mold from growing.
