Bel Air Storm Damaged Basement
The lowest levels of a home in Bel Air and the surrounding area are more susceptible to storm damage from flooding than the above-ground levels. Contaminated groundwater presents several different issues that need addressing by a professional storm cleanup and restoration company like SERVPRO. The rapid removal of any standing water is crucial to limit the damage to the walls and flooring from the wetness and also from the humidity buildup. Secondary damages such as fungal growth, unsanitary conditions, and electrical malfunctions can be prevented by skilled technicians. The "flood cut" in the After Photo illustrates the partial, controlled demolition to salvage the rest of the building materials. The green devices are axial fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers to hasten the evaporation and moisture extraction. It all works together to mitigate storm damages.
