A basement flood or standing water in your home is bad enough in warm weather, but to have your house partly unusable during the coldest days of the year is one of the worst water disasters you can experience in Sandwich, IL. Add to that the insult of an awful smelling mess caused by a mud or sewage backup in the basement, and it’s no wonder why people call professional water damage restoration services like ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip.
It can be the result of a broken water pipe, a crack in the foundation, or a broken hose on a washing machine. Water seeping or gushing into your basement can damage everything it reaches. If the standing water is undetected, even for a few hours, the flood damage can be much worse as materials become thoroughly waterlogged and dirt or sewage contaminates your appliances and belongings.
