In this video Jerry Berg, owner of INTEK, talks with Home Ideas about restoring a home after a sump pump flooded the basement.
The home in this video experienced a stuck float on the sump pump and the whole basement became wet. INTEK’s water damage restoration process begins as soon as you call. The homeowner started by moving as much furniture as possible and when INTEK arrived we set up extraction equipment, removed all the water then pulled up the carpet and pad.
If you catch water damage immediately you can reduce the change of permanent damage such as wet sheetrock and ruined furniture.
Want to prevent water damage in your home?
Follow these tips from INTEK:
Make sure your sump pump is plugged in and tested
See that the sump pump hose doesn’t have any kinks and carries the water away from your home
Check that downspouts are clear of debris, attached, and also carrying the water away from your home.
