Basement Water Extraction

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

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

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 treat every square foot of the affected surface with a plant-based antimicrobial agent. This ensures that no harmful bacteria remain in your home or in your 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 guides 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 its pre-loss state!

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 at your property equipped with moisture meters to properly determine the extent of the damage.  It is very common for water to infiltrate under subflooring, behind baseboards, and saturate insulation within exterior walls. Much of this damage can 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 set up 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 readings 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 effective communication is key to instilling confidence in our clients. Our technicians will work with you each step of the way so that you fully understand 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.

There just isn’t a one-size fits all approach when it comes to waterproofing, so we will do our best to recommend a solution that best fits your needs!

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