Call SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane to Restore Your Spokane Basement After a Flood

Storms in Spokane can be devastating to your home, even if they do not affect a broad area. They can create damage to the roof and windows or saturate the ground around your home. Under all circumstances, water entry into your home can be devastating and costly if left unattended. Rather than relying on intuition, invite a professional service to assess the damage and develop a restoration plan for the health of your home.

For basement flooding in the Spokane area, SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane is standing by, Here to Help. Our team of experts can handle all magnitude of flooding needs. Upon arriving at your home, we thoroughly inspect all affected areas to determine the extent of the damage. A professional team is crucial when you need to file an insurance claim for the loss to help guide you through the process. As we work in your home, we document each of our action steps, which are invaluable as you complete your case for insurance purposes.

What Not to Do After a Flood in Your Basement

When water enters your home, quick remediation is essential. Regardless of how quickly you reach out to our SERVPRO team, you can do a few things to await our arrival. Taking swift action can help mitigate the damage to your house as well as your personal belongings. A simple way to apply the same principles that guide our work include:

  • Remove materials such as upholstery and fabric. Storm waters invite bacteria into your home, and absorbent material can become a breeding ground.
  • Air out the area as much as possible. Our team brings industrial-grade drying equipment such as dehumidifiers, air movers, and air filtration devices. Still, your initial efforts in encouraging water evaporation can be beneficial.
  • Avoid cross-contamination. Help protect other areas of your home by avoiding traffic within it. Our team sets up physical containment barriers with plastic sheeting to prevent debris and microbes from traveling through your home when necessary.

SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane is at your service when flooding happens. Call us at (509) 474-9144 and let us leave your home, "Like it never even happened."
