Basement Moisture Concerns for Runnemede Homes

Finished basements allow for more livable space and increase the overall value and square footage of your Runnemede residence. Whenever disasters like water loss incidents or moisture penetration threaten this lower level of your house, correcting the damages involves a level of precision and expertise that the average homeowner does not possess. There are many risks with an inadequate cleanup of this dampness in the basement, and understanding how your property can get affected can inspire you to reach out to our certified technicians right away.

When water damage occurs anywhere in your Runnemede home, the natural pull of gravity can bring it to the lowest levels of your house. The presence of water or moisture presents multiple layers of risk and threat to both the structure and those exposed to these damages. Our SERVPRO technicians have unique training through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) and with Applied Structural Drying (ASD.) This training allows our entire recovery team to work quickly and confidently throughout a mitigation process.

One of the primary risks of allowing moisture damage to persist too long is the effect on structural integrity and the construction materials used in the house. In a finished basement, homeowners can often find that water loss incidents target susceptible areas like drywall and carpeting to pool. Only with sophisticated location and detection equipment can our SERVPRO team identify the full scope of damage and the full measure of success.

Another substantial risk that homeowners take in allowing moisture and dampness to persist in the basement area is the threat of mold and microbial growth. Mold colonization can begin in as little as 48-72 hours beyond a water loss incident, but our dedicated professionals have advanced technology that can not only limit its spread but also work to protect as much of your damaged residence as possible.

Moisture is more common in basements than you might believe, and allowing this problem to persist can cost you. Let our SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees team help you through every phase of water recovery by calling (856) 566-3388.
