Flooded Basement Dangers

Marietta basement flooding is more than an inconvenience. Property owners who try to remove the flooding and clean up the mess without assistance might place themselves, other occupants, and the structure in danger. Fluids filling your lower levels can be tainted with many hazardous substances depending on the source. AdvantaClean trained and experienced managers immediately complete safety assessments to identify and control for:

  • Slip, trip, and fall issues, including problems involved with deep water and structures and debris hidden beneath the surface

  • Potentially deadly utility line issues, including live wires and leaking gas or oil

  • Significantly contaminated flood water, containing many toxic items or substances such as:

  • Raw sewage, including parasites, bacteria, viruses, and other infectious agents capable of causing illness and possibly fatal outcomes

  • Industrial and household chemicals 

  • Exposed asbestos or lead

  • Insects, reptiles, and animals, deceased and alive, swept in through overland floods 

  • Trapped water threatening to collapse or erode the foundation or enclosed structures

  • Submerged appliances and heating or cooling systems 

 Water, Debris, and Residues Removed

AdvantaClean technicians are well-prepared to clean up all aspects of  Marietta basement flooding. We invest in basic and advanced training for our technicians from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). An extensive inventory of industrial-grade restoration equipment supports our team as they work tirelessly to clear your home or business of Category 3 water, debris and soiling, and malodors. Any sign of mold or other microbial infestation results in prompt remediation following Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols. Expect our personal protective equipment (PPE)-clad team to complete some or all of the following strategies to resolve basement flooding:

  • Containment of work areas with heavy-duty plastic and negative pressure air scrubbers to reduce drift of airborne hazards

  • Pumping with submersible, gas-powered units of flood waters deeper than two inches

  • Extraction with truck-mounted and portable equipment, using onboard generators during temporary electricity outages

  • Collection of contaminated water for lawful disposal following local Marietta rules and regulations 

  • Consideration of controlled demolition to reach trapped flood water and open wet building cavities for fast and effective drying:
  • Flood cuts above damaged drywall between studs

  • Drilling, sawing, or punching of weep and drainage holes to release fluids, including in ceiling tiles and mortar joints between cinder blocks

Once the removal of the basement flood water finishes, AdvantaClean technicians determine drying goals based on building material moisture levels. We establish and monitor the progress of a perimeter of air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers intended to return wet structures to pre-flooding moisture levels.  

AdvantaClean Sanitizes and Deodorizes

The filthy and pathogen-containing water in Marietta flooded basements can cause lingering odors and the fear of mold growth. AdvantaClean takes on these challenges as part of the overall flood restoration. If debris removal and deep cleaning with EPA-registered products do not eliminate bad smells, we continue working on the problem using:

  • Professional proprietary deodorization products

  • Advanced odor removing technology such as ozone machines, hydroxyl generators, enzymatic treatments, and other options that change the chemical makeup of odor-bearing particles 

  • An application of EPA-registered antimicrobials on now-cleaned surfaces affected by basement flooding inhibits the growth of molds and mildews.
