Flooded Basement Hamilton

This project was completed at 0 Robins Ave Hamilton, ON, Canada L8H 4M7.

  • We first determined where the water comes from. If the flood is caused by a burst pipe, we turn off the water supply to the basement. If there is water in the basement after a storm, we wait until the storm is gone before assessing the damage and beginning repairs.
  • We kept the floor drain open and operational to aid in the drainage of the water.
  • We used different techniques to get the water out of the basement by removing it or pumping it out. We used a sump pump, a pool pump, a wet/dry vacuum, or a mop and bucket, depending on the amount of water.
  • We soaked up the remaining water using a cloth or sponges once the majority of it had been removed.
  • We removed any damaged objects from the basement and placed them in a well-ventilated area to dry. It’s best not to dry anything out in the basement because it’s already damp.
  • We ripped up any carpeting as quickly as possible and removed it out of the wet basement. If carpet isn’t removed soon, it can hinder the floor beneath it from drying.
  • Then we allow several days for the basement to dry before attempting any substantial basement flooding repairs. We also leave dehumidifiers on until everything is completely dried.
  • To eliminate any dirt left behind by the water, we cleaned the floors and walls. To prevent mold from spreading, we remove any wet or damaged walls and insulation.
  • When the floor and walls were completely dry, we applied an anti-mildew spray to prevent mildew and mold from forming.
