Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration Services

Do you know what to do when your basement floods? The truth is most people think they do but they actually drastically underestimate how serious a flooded basement can become. Green Restoration water damage cleanup specialists can easily help you understand what you have to do to fix this problem AND help you make your home safe again.


Flooded basements can come without warning. Often, they are attributed to:


When you have a water problem in your basement, you may be tempted to tackle the issue yourself. When there’s a pool at the bottom of your cellar stairs, rest assured that there’s a much more efficient way to dry that area out than with a bucket brigade and a fan. By working with a professional team, you will gain:
  • Efficiency. Professionals have both the equipment and the expertise to get the job done correctly, faster.
  • Safety. There are different levels of water damage, and different levels of danger present in every water extraction situation. Don’t put yourself or your family at risk of disease or illness.
  • Restoration. Not only can a professional company get the water out, they can restore your property to its original state.
  • Cleaning and Sanitization. Just because the room is dry, doesn’t mean it’s clean and sanitized! The Green Restoration crew will protect your family and your property from getting sick after a basement flood.
  • Expert Evaluation. Even if you could dry your basement out yourself, it may not be obvious what caused the flooding and how to prevent it from happening again. A professional will ensure you’re not dealing with another flood anytime in the near future.


Even before you contact Green Restoration specialists to deal with flooded basement cleanups, we recommend that you do the following:
  • Completely avoid the basement. You should never step into basement water for many reasons, one of which is possible electrocution. The area will undoubtedly be very messy, murky, and dirty. Make sure that you turn off the electricity. You might even consider contacting an electrician to be extra safe.
  • Stop the water flow. The actual way in which you do this varies based on the water source. The only situation in which you cannot do much is when your flooded basement problem was caused by groundwater. In such a case, repairs will be extensive, and you’ll want to contact professionals as soon as possible to minimize the damage.
  • Take photographs and videos. Documenting the damage in any situation is a good idea. Once you’ve taken photographs and/or video, you should back up these files, preferably to a cloud-based server. Having this proof of damage will help immensely when dealing with insurance providers.

Frequently Asked Questions

The first step is to remove any standing water. This can be done with a wet/dry vacuum or by mopping up the water with towels. Once the majority of the water has been removed, you’ll need to dry out the area as quickly as possible to prevent mold growth. This can be done by opening windows and doors, running fans, and using a dehumidifier.

There are a few things you can do to prevent your basement from flooding in heavy rain. First, make sure that your gutters and downspouts are clean and clear of debris. This will allow water to flow freely away from your home. Second, consider installing a sump pump in your basement to remove any water that does enter. Finally, make sure that you know where your main water shut-off valve is located in case you need to quickly turn off the water to your home.

A flooded basement can cause mold if the area is not dried out quickly. Mold requires four things to grow: moisture, warmth, darkness, and food. So, if you have a wet basement that is warm and dark, it’s a perfect environment for mold to grow. To prevent mold growth, you’ll need to dry out the area as quickly as possible. This can be done by opening windows and doors, running fans, and using a dehumidifier.
