Flash flooding can be overwhelming for Kanas City homeowners to tackle. After ensuring your family is safe, it can be overwhelming to consider the cleanup that now has to take place. However, there is a team that works fast to restore your home.

If a flash flood has damaged your Kansas City home’s basement, SERVPRO technicians coordinate with property owners and insurance adjusters to ensure a quality, thorough cleanup that returns your property to a clean and safe condition. SERVPRO’s documentation measures can bolster your proof of loss claim with paper evidence, as well as photos and videos.

How Do I Troubleshoot Problems with My Basement Sump Pump?

The sump pump is one of the main lines of defense for minimizing basement flooding. However, problems can arise from inconsistent maintenance, older systems, pump size, or clogs and debris in your system. Keep an eye out for these common sump pump issues:

  • Clogged or frozen discharge lines
  • Obstructions in the intake
  • A burnt-out or overwhelmed pump
  • Power outages, which can leave your pump unable to drain water

What Does SERVPRO Use to Extract Floodwaters?

After a flash flood, it may not be safe to use your electrical system to power extraction. SERVPRO is ready to bring power sources that allow for effective floodwater and debris extraction using truck-mounted pump systems. Submersible, gas-powered sump pumps can supplement water removal if there is still water at least two inches deep in your basement. Thorough extraction is key to sanitizing and drying your home safely.

SERVPRO of Kansas City Midtown is ready to keep your home looking, “Like it never even happened.” You can call (816) 895-8890 to have an emergency response team at your home within hours.
