My Commerce Twp. basement has water in it, what should I do?
When a basement in Commerce Twp. or anywhere has water anywhere on the floor water removal is always an urgent need as the longer it stays wet the more damage it creates. The first step to take when water has entered your home or basement is to be careful nothing electrical has become wet posing a risk for electrical shock or fire. Without touching anything, carefully look to see if water has come into contact with anything electrical and call a professional to secure the environment if it has.
Action Extraction is on call for such water damage emergencies and employ a master electrician who can evaluate and secure the environment in any any water damaged home. The second step is to try to discover where the source for water infiltration into your home is. Managing this step is usually not to difficult and can be done with a systematic approach. If your basement has a sump pump check the water level in the well to see if it is higher than normal. If you have any drains in the basement see if they are holding water and or backing up. Listen for the sound of running water that could identify a burst water pipe, hot water heater rupture or malfunctioning appliance. If you discover running water immediately locate the main shut off and close valve.
My sump pump has stopped working and my basement is flooded, should I call a water restoration company or a plumber?
You may need both. Action Extraction has a plumber on call 24/7 and is experienced in replacing the bad sump pump with a new one as well as assuring you have the right size. Sometimes calling a plumber first is not a good idea because plumbers in general are not willing to work in an environment where there is standing water. Typically they will request the water be removed first. If however, they are willing, once the pump is replaced you still have a wet basement requiring water damage cleanup and will now have to make a call to a water damage company. Calling Action Extraction first will assure you have a headache free experience as we can manage every aspect of the water damage from the plumbing repairs and cleanup to the insurance claim.
If my flooded basement drains by itself, do I still need a professional water restoration company?
If the floor drains eventually allow the water to drain from your flooded basement, you will still need cleanup, evaluation and drying of wet materials that only professional water restoration companies can provide. We remove water, steam clean all contaminated surfaces, sanitize with anti-microbial agents and can remove excessive moisture to avert smells and the potential for mold growth. Additionally it is important to find out why your basement flooded to begin with and check drains for a problem, otherwise it is sure to be repeated after the next heavy downpour.
My basement is wet and beginning to smell, how long till I get water damage or mold?
There exist a strong possibility of acquiring visible mold in as little as 48-72 hours. As long as water remains, water will continue to damage the home environment. Water should be removed as soon as possible and decontamination of all surfaces should begin the first 24 hours after a flood. Materials like; wet carpet, carpet pad, wood, tile and drywall, must be evaluated for potential mold and often these materials must be removed from the home and replaced. If your home has experience water damage and your carpet is smelling, it is a sure sign of microbial amplification and anti-microbial specialty agents are required. Carpets may be beyond being salvaged as well.
