Storm Damage Handle Your Wet Basement Issue Quickly In Your Marlborough Home Drainage Systems Protect Marlborough Basements and Foundations from Flooding Damages

SERVPRO Offers Solutions to Flooded and Damp Basements

As if the severe weather passing through Marlborough was not enough, improperly waterproofed foundations can allow moisture and water in through cracks and mortar joints that were not full. Your basement should not be permitted to stay moist or wet though because several potential problems could arise.
 
When you consider a wet basement in your Marlborough home, many people weigh all of the things that they have stored in the lower levels of their home that could become irreparably damaged by the presence of pooling water. The possibility of flooding from torrential weather could be a distinct possibility if your foundation has already become compromised. Even smaller amounts of water penetrating to the inside and entering your basement could spell trouble in this case.
 
If you notice that the walls of your foundation are wet following a moderate rain shower, this is something that you need to correct as soon as you are able. The problem with the foundation is going to get worse, as the presence of water erodes even the most durable of mortar joints without adequate waterproofing. The best thing that you can do is to call our experienced and reliable SERVPRO team of technicians to assess the problem and get to work quickly on a solution.
 
As you well know, storms can pop up at a moment’s notice. With this being a distinct likelihood, the longer you wait to fix a foundation problem, the more wet basement issues that you have. Our SERVPRO professionals can address precisely where the water is penetrating, and coat the area with hydraulic cement and masonry cement to successfully stop water from getting in. Then, the restoration process involves pulling moisture from the air using dehumidifiers and thoroughly drying up the presence of any lingering water that got inside before the holes were sealed. These steps go a very long way in preventing the possibility of mold growth in the basement of your home.

Foundation leaks are not entirely uncommon to Marlborough homes, but it is something that you should address as soon as you can. Give SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord a call. You can reach us anytime at (978) 486-9868.
