Sump Pump Disasters
Sump pumps are designed to remove water from a drain tile system around the foundation of the house. They have a tendency to burn out and it can result in catastrophic water damage including mold, damage to carpets and padding, woodwork, drywall, insulation and personal property.
SERVPRO of Scott County/Chaska has a crew who is trained to tackle damage from sump pump failures. Our goal is to be on site as soon as the homeowner notices the damage, this way we can prevent any further damage from happening.
If there's substantial standing water, our crew will start by moving contents and extracting the water from the affected area. Then we take moisture readings of the walls and wood trim to determine where we need to focus on drying. Our next step is to determine whether carpet, if present, is salvageable. Last step is to strategically place air movers and dehumidifiers for thorough and efficient drying.
