24 Help for Flooded Basement Emergencies

Regardless of how the water originally intruded, home and business owners are wise to seek help when challenged by basement flooding in Johns Creek. The quantity of floodwater can be overwhelming, necessitating professional-grade equipment and many hands to eliminate. Sadly, consumer-grade equipment like buckets, mops, and shop vacs fail to remove the fluids quickly enough to avoid significant deterioration of building materials and contents. The optimum window of opportunity to clean up water emergencies is 24 to 48 hours for a couple of reasons. Structural components begin deteriorating almost immediately upon contact with floodwater, and the intensity of the damage increases hour by hour. Also, mold growth is likely when building materials remain moist beyond that time. AdvantaClean can provide a well-trained and equipped crew to respond quickly and effectively, minimize damage to structures and contents, and inhibit or arrange for remediation of microbial development.

Basements Flood Easily 

When you think of Johns Creek basement flooding, envisioning only overflowing waterways leaves out other common causes. Rising water within the foundation of your home or business can trace to a broad range of events, including:

● Rupture of plumbing lines or appliances (examples: main supply line, water heater, washing machine pump, or hose)     

● Backup of sewer lines due to breakage, clogs, roots

● Flash overland flooding from torrential precipitation

● Seepage through foundations from the saturated ground after training rain (repeated or sustained precipitation over a period of hours or days)

● Intrusion from rain roof runoff when gutter and downspout systems are inadequately installed, missing, or poorly maintained

Why Not Just Let the Water Drain

It is tempting to let time take its course, especially if you have had minor pooling in the past that “disappeared” without help. Unfortunately, fluids that seem to subside on their own can still result in permanent and progressive damage to building materials, some of which might not be readily apparent. Cavities trapping water behind walls, paneling, and inside the cells of cinder block construction hide the harm from view but do not eliminate the potential of severe consequences. Mold and mildew thrive in these conditions, even when growing out of sight. In addition to creating an unpleasant, musty odor, mold damages the organic materials found in your cellar, consuming the surfaces upon which its colonies spread. Floodwater absorbed by the stone, brick, block, concrete, or wooden foundation shortens their lifespans, causing weakening and threatening the eventual collapse of these crucial supporting structures.
