Flooded Basement Bountiful
Is Sea Water Flooding Different from Freshwater?
Flooded basement crises need to be addressed quickly, regardless of whether it is saltwater or fresh water. In may ways, it is even more imperative that water removal be performed quickly in the case of salt water flooding before the salt can crystallize and eat into the wood. Salt can also hasten the corrosion of metal, leaving your foundation vulnerable and weakened.
Even though salt water has natural mold-fighting properties, there is still a reason for you to take care of it quickly. The saline content of sea water is highly electronically conducive, and risks of electric shock are very real, especially if you have children at home. Left to its own device, the damage can lead to black out, incurring a city fine. What’s more, homeowner insurance typically will count waiting as negligence, forcing you to pay for the repair from your own pocket or with a supplemental policy.
