A Severe Thunderstorm Can Flood Your Little Rock Basement Laundry Room

8/2/2018 (Permalink)

Having waters rush into the basement of your home and cause flood damage over the course of a night can be incredibly overwhelming.

Flood Damage To Your Basement Laundry Room

Flood damage can come to your home in many ways. However, when it comes to storms, one of the most common ways is a broken window. With wind speeds of over fifty miles an hour during a severe storm, it is not hard to imagine how flying debris can create an entry point in your home. Once the entry point is made, it is easy for the rushing water from the rain to make its way into your home.

Having waters rush into the basement of your Little Rock home and cause flood damage over the course of a night can be incredibly overwhelming. Suddenly, the place you wash your laundry is filled up to your knees with water. Clothing is soaked through, your dryer and washer are partially underwater, and your cleaning supplies are floating around and ruined.

In just one night, the storm over your home has the potential to do thousands of dollars worth of damage. Because of this, it is imperative for you to call for help as soon as you can. If a restoration company can get there quickly, it is more likely that your home can be returned to its preloss state.

Here at SERVPRO, we try to arrive at your residence as soon as possible. Along with our team of IICRC-certified technicians, we also bring advanced technology to combat the flooding waters inside of your home. Due to the detergent, and other cleaning chemicals, that were stored in your basement leaching into the water, we do not recommend you go near the damage yourself.

SERVPRO can use tools like portable submersible pumps and wet/dry vacuums to remove the stagnant water from your basement. Should the volume of water be considerable enough, we can bring truck-mounted tools that can hold the water inside an interior tank. After removing the water, SERVPRO can gather clothing that has been compromised by the flood and take them away from your home to be cleaned. Any ruined clothing can be noted on a list for your insurance company.

Once our technicians clean up the space, SERVPRO can focus on using tools such as dehumidifiers and air movers to dry out your basement. The final touch is to return your dry clothing to you.

Should a severe thunderstorm cause flood damage in your basement, do not pause to consider your options. Dial (501) 803-9700 to get in contact with SERVPRO of Northwest Little Rock. No matter the time or day, we strive to be available to you.
