What Can I Do to Drain Water from My Westerly Basement?

flood in basement Who are you going to call if you have a flood in your Westerly home basement? Call SERVPRO the team experienced in flood water extraction.

Our SERVPRO team has multiple extraction options that can remove standing water from your basement and start the drying process. 

Flooding in the lower levels of your Westerly home can be disastrous for your residence. From the struggles of extracting standing water to the obstacles involved with drying out concrete flooring and masonry units, our SERVPRO team can help.

Extracting water is one of the first steps that must happen when addressing flood damage to Westerly homes. Standing water is one of the biggest threats to the house, from promoting microbial growth to deteriorating exposed materials. Trash pumps and truck-mounted pumps are often the best choices for these situations to remove water with solids and debris.

How Can My Basement Get Dry After a Flood? 

Drying out the basement area after extraction is another set of concerns. We can begin to evaporate trapped water in concrete and blockwork through the use of several traditional and specialty drying tools. Some of these tools include:

  • Air movers
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers
  • Floor mat drying systems 
  • Positive pressure systems

Flooding in the basement can be challenging, but our SERVPRO of Washington County team can help with a full-service approach, including both mitigation and reconstruction. Give us a call anytime you need us at (401) 315-2337.
