Storm Waters Flood Phoenixville, PA Basement
When the rains came, so did the flood waters in this Phoenixville, PA home! With power lost, the sump pump was unable to do its job of pumping the flood water from the basement, which made the water damage even worse. SERVPRO of North East Chester County was able to quickly respond and started by pumping out the standing water with our truck-mounted extractor. Once the excess water was out of the picture, it was time to demo some building materials that were deemed non-salvageable; which can often be the case with storm water damage. Now the basement was just about ready for drying equipment, consisting of air movers and dehumidifiers - most people are surprised by how effective these professional drying units are! With storm water damage, there are also concerns about contaminants that may be suspended in the flood waters, so we also used an anti-microbial solution to sanitize the remaining structure and contents to prevent the spread of any harmful contagions.
