Drying out the Basement

After our sump pump quit working sometime last week, I found myself standing in a foot of water in our basement.  As a home owner, that is the last thing that you ever want to see.  Events such as this cause you to feel a myriad of emotions all at once: despair, anger, sadness and hopelessness.  I couldn’t help but wonder how I was ever going to get all this water out of my basement.

This problem was bigger than I could handle on my own.

Instead of trying to tackle it on my own, I decided to enlist the help of a company that specialized in water damage cleanup to do the work.  I knew that they would know the right procedures to use, they would have the right equipment and know exactly what to look for – all things that I would overlook.

It was the best thing I could have done.

They got to work right away and pumped the water out from the basement.  That didn’t take them long and now they are drying it out before making the repairs.

It feels good to see some progress.

While I know that things won’t be fixed overnight, I am confident that they will be able to get my home back into a liveable condition.  Hopefully I’ll never have to deal with this kind of problem ever again.
