Water in Finished Basement in Wheaton
“I have water in my finished basement. What do I do?”
We don’t recommend just using your shop vacuum or mopping the visible water up and calling it a day. There are so many different variables to consider such as:
Where has the water traveled?
- If your second-floor bathroom experienced water damage, the water can travel through the floor and affect first floor rooms.
- If your finished basement has water damage, the water can soak up in the drywall and insulation behind the wall.
- Water dripping in your bedroom could be coming in from the roof and affect insulation and roof in your attic.
All these undetected areas, if not dried properly, can become an environment for microbial growth (MOLD!) and avoiding growth is why you should call an IICRC trained firm to inspect the property to see just where the water has traveled.
You can call SERVPRO of Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle 24/7 at 630-384-1040 to discuss the process of cleaning and drying out your property after water intrusion in your home or business.
