SERVPRO’s Flood Damage Experts Initiate Crucial First Steps to Address Flooding in Your Newark Basement

Flooding at the lowest point in your home can happen when major storms come through the Newark area. If you have basement flooding, you may have issues from improper drainage all around the basement walls. Whether you have a problem with your storm drain, a malfunctioning sump pump, or a storm surge came in unexpectedly, SERVPRO is available to handle the cleanup. It is crucial that you have all standing water removed as quickly as possible, followed by drying, contents restoration, and controlled demolition as needed. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, so you can count on your home getting restored faster than DIY methods could ever achieve.

What Actions Can I Take?
When you have basement flood damage in Newark, it is paramount that you think of safety first. You might be able to initiate water removal until our Green Fleet arrives, but you need to ensure everything is safe before venturing into the basement.

    •    Flooding in the basement can bring electrical hazards for you as well as family members.
    •    There are hidden dangers due to slip and fall or injury from debris that may be present with flooded basements.
    •    Any stormwater coming into your home will have some level of contamination.

It is also important to note that flooded zones within your home can become the ultimate dangerous bacterial growth atmosphere. Mold spores multiply when the environment is wet. Still, our IICRC-certified technicians know how to mitigate this fungal growth to keep the hyphae from spreading into unaffected areas of your home.

If you have any flooding in your basement or lower level of your home, it is best that you remember every minute counts. Without prompt action, you could face issues such as extensive damage to your:
    •    Carpeting and padding below
    •    Subfloors and baseboards
    •    Ceilings
    •    Walls and structural elements
    •    Electronics and wiring
    •    Personal belongings, and more
