Ever wake up to a flooded basement due to heavy rains? This is the reality that many people in Burlington, VT woke up to recently, after 4 inches of rain fell in a short period of time, many homes and businesses suffered flooded basements. ServiceMaster Elite crews worked day and night to respond to as many homes as possible following the storms, many techs working through the night. Technicians extracted water from basements using pumps, extraction truck mounts and portable extraction units. In many cases there was several feet of water in a basement and significant effort was required to ensure the thousands of gallons of water was extracted.
Following extraction, our IICRC certified technicians removed any wet materials that could not be dried such as wet carpeting and saturated hardwood floors, sheet rock and insulation. It is important to quickly remove these materials as over time they can sustain microbial growth that is not healthy nor conducive to living conditions. Our technicians will use moisture meters to detect the water damage and hidden moisture.
Using dehumidifiers and air movers we then proceeded to dry out all wet materials in the home or business. It is important to know that most dehumidifiers, that can be purchased at a home goods store are not capable of providing the proper amount of dry air to dry all the water damaged materials in your home. ServiceMaster Elite uses state of the art industrial dehumidifiers and air movers to ensure the proper conditions are met that can scientifically drive the intended result of a water free and dry basement.
