Water Removal Franklin–Basement Plumbing Leaks
Let SERVPRO Help With Your Water Removal in Your Franklin Home
Plumbing leaks in a basement can go unnoticed for some time, primarily when used for storage vs. part of your living space. Many homeowners do not go into their basements that often. Some are used as an occasional games room or even an entertainment area. When a leak occurs, the floor can quickly become covered in several inches of water. Moisture can wick up into the drywall if this space is a finished portion of your Franklin home.
SERVPRO will respond to all water removal situations in Franklin. Whether it is a finished room, partially finished, or unfinished, there is water, and your contents are in jeopardy. The first step owners should take after calling us for help is to ensure it is safe to enter the space. Make sure there are no risks of electrocution. Since the water is clean, dealing with contaminants is not a consideration.
We can deploy various pumps to remove the water and then use industrial vacuums to remove water on the floor or in the carpets. SERVPRO can also remove items that may require additional cleaning and drying. These items may be moved to a staging area such as the garage to assess further and determine the best approach to restoring these items to their original condition. Note that restoration of documents and various paper products may not be possible without some lasting damage.
In finished basements with drywall installed on the walls, the water may soak into the drywall and wick above the waterline. The drywall is not salvageable. It is usually cut and removed above the waterline. Removal also enables drying of the wall with the help of air movers and dehumidifiers. We may also use antimicrobial products to prevent the growth of mold.
SERVPRO always attempts to minimize the damage while ensuring your home is dry and ready to be restored. We deal with many different finishes and water leak situations.
