Picture this–you’re on your summer vacation far from home and you get word of a devastating flood in Omaha (this is getting to be pretty common, especially this summer). You start thinking about your situation. You live at the bottom of a hill with drainage issues, and your sump pump hasn’t been exactly working like a champ either. You start thinking that it’s almost a guarantee that your house was affected, and maybe you have a flooded basement.

Make the Call to Restoration Now! Omaha, Then Dig In
When you have a flooded basement, the first thing to do is call a professional company like Restoration Now! Omaha that can be on site right away to diagnose the damage and get started on an action plan to save your home and possessions. Depending on the type of water (clear, gray, or black) that’s flooded your basement, you only have a limited time before mold and mildew begin to set in, creating a hazardous environment for you and your family. This is why beginning the water damage restoration process right away is essential.
Once you’ve made the call, you should work to begin removing items from the affected area. We can’t stress enough that the electricity needs to be shut off to all flooded areas before any attempt is made to move items, especially electronics. If you don’t know how to shut off the power to these areas, you should get professional help to do so before continuing.
Restoration Now! Omaha’s Flooded Basement Response
Once our team of Omaha water damage restoration technicians are on the scene, we go to work right away determining the origin and extent of the water damage. If you’re dealing with gray or black water, both of which are laden with hazardous bacteria and pathogens that can make your family sick, we have the equipment and training necessary to avoid cross-contamination and remove the water from your home.
After the water is removed, we go to work on the drying process, which requires the use of specialized air movers and dehumidification equipment that can dry your flooded basement faster than conventional box fans or dehumidifiers available to the public. We also have special electronic sensors that can detect pockets of moisture hidden in areas you might not think to look, such as behind walls and underneath flooring.
Finally, our restoration technicians goes to work restoring damaged structures like drywall, flooring, and other areas, as well as all of your furniture and other items. By the time we leave, your basement will look like it was never flooded at all!
