Proper Drying is Essential in Your Omaha Home

Basement Flooding

A flooded basement is a traumatic event for a homeowner.  Unexpected flooding can happen to anyone at anytime.  Attempting to handle the damage without proper training or equipment can be ineffective and dangerous.  A wet-dry vacuum is helpful for removing small amounts of water but should be avoided in instances of major flooding.  Homeowners should not wade into a heavily flooded basement but instead call a professional to handle the situation.

The Industry Standard

The industry time standard for removing water from a property is 24-48 hours.  The technicians at SERVPRO of Omaha Northwest have equipment ready for rapid water extraction.  Additionally, moisture can hide in pockets behind walls or within cinder blocks, so technicians are trained in drilling small holes in mortar joints and opening wallboards to allow adequate air flow.  Technicians will use moisture meters and scanning devices to locate residual water.
