Frequently Asked Questions
My Berkley MI basement is flooded, what should I do?
When basements flood and water is discovered covering the floor it is easy to understand that questions would arise as to what steps should be taken. The first step is to make sure the water has not come into contact with anything electrical and if it has call a professional to secure the environment. Once you are certain the water has not come into contact with anything electrical, look to see where the water is coming from. Typically the source of the water will be easy to discover. If your home has a sump pump see if it is working. Evaluate all floor drains that may be visible to see if the sewer has backed up. Listen carefully for running water that would indicated a water line or appliance has malfunctioned.
My sump pump is not working, do I call a plumber or water restoration company?
Call us first if your sump pump has failed and we will not only replace your old system with a new one, we will immediately remove all the standing water and begin the restoration process. If you call a plumber first, once they have finished replacing the pump, you will still need to have the standing water removed. Most plumbers do not have the necessary training , equipment or certification to provide flooded basement restoration and cleaning Berkley MI.
If my basement drains by itself through the floor drains and dries why do I need a professional for flooded basement restoration and cleaning Berkley MI?
Once the standing water in the basement environment has completely been removed through a drain or even professional extraction, the high moisture must be removed from all the building materials as well as the air to ensure you don’t get mold or microscopic contamination. We dry all materials and structures that are wet or have absorbed water not just the water itself. If you only remove the standing water than wet materials such as carpet pad or drywall you are very likely to get mold in 48 hours. When we manage the drying of your Berkley flooded basement all moisture is removed from all materials and structures.
Water is in my basement, how long do I have till I get water damage or mold?
Water unlike fire continues to further damage the home environment. Once fire has been put out you stop the spread of further destruction, however water continues to destroy and potentially create a health threatening environment due to mold and microbial contamination. Wet materials must be in a drying chamber or mold will be likely in 48 hours.
My sewer backed up can I remain in my flooded home?
Not all sewer backups are the same. It is important to have it evaluated by one of our trained professionals who will determine the extent of the contamination. The important thing is to remove the sewer water and all materials including drywall from the home, that the sewer water has come into contact with. After this essential step an anti-microbial agent must be applied and a containment chamber set up to keep the rest of the home safe.

Types of Water Damage Restoration
Not all water damage is the same as some types are classified as much more injurious to property. Action Extraction in highly skilled in recognizing the signs of flood damage and can easily classify your flood type. The appropriate classification of your flooded basement is crucial for servicing the damages correctly. If the source of the water is a broken water line, a tub or sink that overflows or a washing machine that malfunctions and overflows that is much different than a sewer backup. Sewer water is a high risk cleanup requiring specialized training to assure cross contamination does not occur, jeopardizing human health and safety. High risk flood damage service begins with a careful assessment of the surrounding affected areas and a comprehensive approach to safety. Toilets that clog and overflow or drains that backup contain terribly infectious water and requires germ killing agents that are safe and all natural.
It is estimated that in time 98% of all basements in the US will flood from a drain backup or foundation leak at some time. Action Extraction has managed such emergencies with local experts allowing us to be highly recognized in Berkley MI a high risk basement flooding area.
According to the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration certification) water damage can be easily understood in 3 categories. Category 1 is fresh water from sources such as water pipes. Category 2 is water with a higher degree of contamination from sources like sump wells and basement foundation leaks. Category 3 is a measurably high risk and grossly contaminated environment often manifesting as a sewer backup. Not all flood damage companies in Berkley can service category 3 water losses or are not recognized for customer service in managing these types of cleanups.
