While water is essential for life to exist, too much of it can be disastrous. For example, a flooded basement can be troublesome, as it can leave water damage, mold development, ruined belongings, and other mishaps as aftermaths. However, if your basement flooded recently (and the damage is something you can handle), you can follow the steps below to deal with it expertly.

How to Deal with a Flooded Basement

  1. First and foremost, act fast since the longer you wait, the more water damage your house and belongings will endure.
  2. Next up, you need to carefully assess the situation. If the basement is too flooded or if the damage done is too big, you will be better off calling an expert team.
  3. If you have insurance against floods, call your insurance company immediately! If you don't, consider purchasing one for the future.
  4. You should be very cautious when working on a flooded basement. For example, shut your electricity down to avoid the risk of shock.
  5. Rent a special vacuum or call an expert team to extract water from your basement. If the flood was minimal, use a mop or broom to dry the floor.
  6. If you have any belongings in the basement, take those items out promptly to have a higher chance of salvaging them. Put them out in the sun to dry.
  7. Naturally, you'll want to dry the area quickly to prevent mold development. To that end, use fans and open windows and doors to ventilate the room.
  8. Then, you'll have to clean up the basement. This includes ensuring it's completely dry and going through your belongings to throw away the ruined items.
  9. Last but not least, you should fix the issue that caused the flood in the first place (e.g. a busted pipe), so this doesn't happen again.
