How to Clean Your Floor After Your Basement Floods

Cleaning Your Floor After a Basement Flood A leaky pipe, a sewer system backup, unseasonably heavy rains—any one of these issues can result in a flooded basement.
The longer water sits on your floor, the more likely it will develop into a hazardous situation.
Removing the Water If the flooding is extensive, the flood water is contaminated, or there’s any shock danger from electrical outlets or appliances, make sure you call professionals like Rainbow Restoration immediately to safely deal with the problem.
Because concrete and tile floors don’t shrink when dried quickly like wood, it’s safe to use a fan or dehumidifier to help speed up the drying process.
Once most of the water has been removed, clean and rinse the carpet with an extraction cleaner (also known as a steam cleaner).
