 Contending with a Wet Basement in Your Homewood Residence

Basements and cellars are common construction staples for Homewood properties, and with their proximity to the moist ground and with potential vulnerabilities at the surface level for the foundation, water loss incidents can often originate and persist here. We strive to offer properties a comprehensive approach to loss recovery, showcasing the full measure of our advanced equipment and expertise with mitigation solutions when time is of the essence.

With so many Homewood property owners that use their basement for storage and safekeeping of treasures and belongings, water damage can become a costly and destructive situation. Our SERVPRO professionals have a rapid response to these emergencies, helping to get effective mitigation work started for your property quickly. These practices can not only protect the affected materials but also those stored items that you have in your basement as well.

Our Contents Department can walk through the property with our estimator to determine which possessions in this lower level of your home requires removal and protection. Even without substantial loss incidents that leave standing water on the floor of this basement area, excessive moisture can still prove equally destructive to specific items. Mitigation involves preventing this moisture and dampness from spreading further through the main floor of your house and causing even more structural damage than you already have to face.

The SERVPRO team members that get dispatched to your address can quickly work to remedy excessive moisture and saturation with air movers and dehumidifiers. For excessive moisture situations, our professionals often choose the Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) Dehumidifiers as they can cover a large area of your property and can quickly reduce moisture content below acceptable parameters to prevent secondary effects like mold growth from occurring.

We can appreciate how quickly basement moisture can become a destructive situation for your stored belongings or when other damages result such as microbial growth. You can depend on the fast response and equipment of our SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood specialists to make water loss effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (708) 747-9925.
