Basement flood cleanup can be difficult to handle. Because the basement is located at the bottom level of your home, often below ground level, this area is harder to ventilate and dry it out after a flood. However, basement flood cleanup should be done as soon as possible to ensure that the chances of significant water damage are smaller and that mold growth does not begin to occur.
Mold is a type of fungus that is necessary to the environment, but it should not grow excessively in our homes. However, mold can start to grow within 24-48 hours after water exposure. It is better to get basement flood cleanup done before mold has the chance to start growing. While you may be tempted to try to do basement flood cleanup yourself, this is not recommended, especially if there is a significant amount of water, the water came from a contaminated source like the sewer, or there is a possibility of mold has begun to grow and spread to other parts of your home.
