SERVPRO® offers many extraction options that can remove standing water from your basement and start the drying process.

Flooding in the lowest levels can cause property damage. SERVPRO® is a team of experts that can help you with everything, from removing standing water to drying concrete floors and masonry units.



The first thing to do when dealing with flood damage is to drain the water. Standing water can cause damage to your home by encouraging microbial growth and deterioration of exposed materials. These situations can be handled best by trash or truck-mounted pumps.

What can I do after a flood to dry my basement?

Drying out basements after extraction is another concern. To begin to evaporate water that has been trapped in concrete and blockwork, we can use a variety of traditional and specialty drying tools. These tools include:

  • Air Movers
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers
  • Floor mat drying systems
  • Positive pressure systems



Basement flooding can be dangerous, but SERVPRO® Southwest Onondaga team is here to help. We provide a full-service solution that includes both mitigation as well as reconstruction.
