WATER CAN BE HAZARDOUS REASONS TO CALL THE PROFESSIONALS
We cover each concern during flood restoration and will not allow anything to go un-evaluated for the safety of you and your family. You can count on our experience to address any and all potential threats to your home.
Deep Water In Basements Can Kill
Never go in a deeply flooded basement alone as it may be the last thing you ever do. Once water reaches the height of an outlet the water becomes electrified and you have a more profound risk of electrocution, only an electrician can remedy. We have several electricians on call that will determine the electrical hazards and correct them. At times we need to completely disconnect your electrical meter for a short time to make it once again safe.
If you have gas service than your furnace and hot water heater and clothes dryer could be allowing uncontrolled gas into your home making another horrifying potential for serious injury. All these things must be evaluated and sometimes gas shut off temporarily till repairs are made.
Hidden Dangers of a Flooded Basement Cause Mold
Flooded basements are easy to recognize when water is everywhere and wet carpet soaks your shoes as you walk. However, the hidden moisture in walls, flooring and other building materials can remain wet for weeks producing smells, mold and other invisible living hazards. Our trained flood technicians use cutting edge technology and moisture detection equipment that easily detects the presence of water, so nothing goes under the radar and all moisture can be addressed and removed.
Why Basements flood in Michigan
Basements are the most susceptible to flooding after a lengthy rainfall or melting snow. Even small amounts of rainfall can produce an astonishing amount of water.
The roof on a medium sized home will have more than 1,000 gallons go through the gutters with just 1 inch of rainfall.
The water table rises dramatically during rainfall and accumulates around the foundation and easily makes its way into cracks, joints and drains that fail to work properly. Basements maintain the lowest point of any home explaining why they flood first.
Basement Flooding From A Ground Water Source
When it rains outside, when ice melts or when drains and sump pumps fail, basements are susceptible to flooding because the water table around your home rises. As this happens it is very likely to intrude into your basement if your draining system fails to channel the ground water away.
This basement had several thousand gallons of rainwater come up through the drain as it rained due to the sump pump failing. Ground water is abundant with microorganisms, making it living water and rich in fungi, molds and bacteria. Homes that regularly apply fertilizers to the lawn are adding very harmful chemicals to the water table that comes into the home during flooding. By law fertilizer companies must place warning signs on your lawn to caution you as to what is there for your protection. Imagine these same chemicals inside your home and occupants breathing them in. That is exactly what happens and the environment needs to be secured, if chemical inhalation is to be avoided.

Basement Flooding From A Fresh Water Source
Several sources for fresh water flooding would be: a broken water pipe, a burst hot water heater, a malfunctioning appliance or a sink overflow. While not immediately a contaminated health hazard, this type of water can create serious damage to the home as well as a mold threat.
Basement flooding from a fresh water source is typically always covered by insurance assuming the documentation is in order. We are abundantly experienced at documenting water losses for the insurance industry and provide the records that assure your full coverage.
Basement Flooding From a Sewer Backup.
Sewer water is undoubtedly the most dangerous water to find it’s way into your basement. Typically these types of floods occur after heavy raining and where drain systems are at fault. Often it is a clogged sewer drain requiring snaking to dislodge and remove a blockage. In extreme cases a broken drain pipe may be at fault costing hundreds in repairs or more.
Once sewer water comes into the home environment time is not on your side. With each passing hour germs, viruses and organic compounds begin to amplify and reproduce millions of hazardous offspring that can easily effect the air you breath. Young children, small pets and the elderly are at greatest risk.
