How Professional Remediation Services Handle a Basement Flood | Cleanup Services

Opening your basement door and finding that you are looking at a few inches of water covering the floor can be shocking. At Tri Span, we are ready to come out at any moment and help you get this type of situation under control before your Los Angeles home sustains serious water damage.

Stop the Source of the Water Leak

A break in the main water line of your Orange County home can cause your entire basement to flood. It can be stressful knowing that anything stored down there will have some level of water damage. It’s critical to have this problem taken care of quickly to avoid a further problem of mold.

Pump Standing Water from the Basement

Our water damage specialists will start the water removal process right away by pumping any standing water out of the basement. The walls of your Los Angeles basement can become damaged by water if it’s allowed to stay for any length of time.

Remove Any Damaged Storage Items, Wood, or Wall Boards

Finished or semi-finished basements will often have walls added to close off separate areas. Flooding will damage portions of these materials. You may have items stored in cardboard boxes that will have to be removed. Wood stairs can become water damaged and might need to be removed as well.

Dehumidify and Dry the Space

Drying a basement area can take longer than most areas of the home. It’s a typically moist area that retains humidity in the air. We will add the power of dehumidifying to shorten the time it takes for the space to dry.

Repair Any Areas of Water Damage

Any building materials damaged by the water, broken plumbing, and other fixtures will have to be repaired or replaced. Window repair might be necessary if the water intrusion is the result of rainstorm activity through a window access.

Contact us at Tri Span if your Los Angeles home has suffered a basement flood. Water damage must be handled quickly to keep damage from spreading from contaminants like mold. We handle the Los Angeles County and surrounding area.
