Basement Water Extraction

DeShano Restoration extracts, dries and cleans basements that have been affected by flood events, leaky pipes, or drain backups. We have the equipment and specialized training required to properly remediate spaces affected by water damage. If you are in need of water extraction or cleaning after a storm event or plumbing malfunction give us a call today.

It is very important to dry down a flooded area as quickly as possible to prevent mold growth. If a good food source is present, mold will thrive in damp and humid environments. Mold can grow on a variety of surfaces including drywall, wood trim, ceiling tiles and even studs inside of wall cavities. While mold is harmless in small amounts, large concentrations of mold inside your home presents a serious hazard to you and your families’ health.

Mold isn’t the only health hazard posed by water damage. Leaking drain lines and flood events have the potential to release water laden with contaminants such as sewage, pesticides, heavy metals or other toxic substances. After we complete the drying process, we will treat every square foot of affected surface with a plant-based antimicrobial agent. This ensures that no harmful bacteria will remain in your home or property.

Unlike other restoration companies, DeShano Restoration will not only dry your property, but we can put it back together as well. Our reconstruction team will guide you through every step of the process from selecting replacement materials to billing your insurance company for the work. Our new home construction experience gives us the knowledge to successfully restore your damaged property back to new.

DeShano Restoration’s Proven Restoration Process

Our restoration process is based upon the best practices outlined by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) in addition to our company’s commitment to value, and professionalism.

Evaluation & Water Extraction

Our process starts with evaluating the extent of the damage to your home.  Our trained technicians will arrive to your property equipped with moisture meters to properly determine the extent of the damage.  It is very common for water to infiltrate under sub flooring, behind base boards and saturate insulation within exterior walls. Much of this damage might otherwise go unnoticed without the proper tools and could lead to mold growth.  This is why the evaluation step is so important.

Extract the standing water

Step two involves extracting any standing water that may still be present.  This can range from pumping standing water out with a trash pump to extracting water from carpet using a specialized extractor.

Place Equipment

Next our team will setup air movers and dehumidifiers and begin the dry down process.

Take Daily Readings

Throughout the drying process, we will monitor humidity in each room, and take direct moisture reading of the floors, walls, and in some cases the ceiling. Accurate records allow us to identify how well the space is drying. In cases where we experience faster than expected results, we will take a few drying units off the job each day until the project is complete.

If your basement water extraction job is being paid by an insurance claim, we will submit to your adjuster the proper moisture reading records and documentation to ensure the claim is processed in an efficient manner.

Communicate Progress

During a basement water extraction project, we understand that effective communication is key to instilling confidence in our clients. Our technicians will work with you each step of the way so that you understand fully our progress during the restoration process.

Chronic Issues? Waterproofing might be the Answer

If standing water has become a major issue on your property, waterproofing might be the ideal solution. From crawl spaces to basements, waterproofing can manage the moisture around your property- preventing future moisture issues.

Different solutions include vapor barrier installation, sealing block walls, insulating crawlspaces, installing water diverting channels, and the installation of energy efficient dehumidifiers.

Since there is not a one-size fits all approach when it comes to waterproofing, we will do our best to recommend a solution that best fits your needs.

Standing Water in your Basement that needs Extraction? Call DeShano Restoration

Standing water in your basement can create serious issues overtime.  Prompt and effective remediation is the key to preventing further damage.

Regardless if standing water occurs only after a rainfall, or if it is an on-going problem, the mere presence is an indicator that action is required.

With over 50 years of experience in the construction industry, DeShano Restoration was founded in 2011.  We believe a large portion of our success is staying active within our industry. That is why we are affiliated with the Better Business Bureau, IICRC, Associated General Contractors of America, Restoration Industry Association, Michigan Association of Homebuilders and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce.

Licensed, bonded and insured, we undertake the entire project from start to finish while working directly with your insurance company to ensure your claim is processed in a smooth and efficient manner.

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we are always ready to respond to your call.
