Flood Damage Can Undermine Your Columbus Area Home
Basements Demand Rapid Water Extraction After a Stormwater Intrusion
Many homes in Columbus sit on top of a basement. Over the years, these below-ground areas of a home sustain different types of weathering and wear than the rest of the home experiences. Heavy rainfall during storms can saturate the ground, and if water does not drain away from your home correctly, damaging effects can happen to the foundation or basement walls.
During or immediately after heavy rains in Columbus, flood damage can happen to your home. Misaligned gutters and downspouts can significantly add to the problem, or cause it to occur during average, less fierce showers. Just like when flooding affects your home's living areas, SERVPRO is there to help you restore your basement after flooding events provide your family with an unwanted swimming pool in the basement.
Relying on your sump pump to remove the water from a drenched basement often leaves dampened areas and damaged concrete floors. The dangers risked by your family members as they attempt to clean things up involve many unknown factors, including pathogens and risk of electric shock.
Instead, having SERVPRO carry out the work keeps your family safe and out of harm's way. Our technicians arrive at your home fully experienced in mitigating this and many other types of disasters from homes and businesses.
