When your basement floods or a drain back up occurs, water damage takes place. Water damage can result in swelling baseboards, soaking wet drywall, damaged contents, damaged flooring, carpets and more.

The baseboards in your home serve many purposes like providing an appealing aesthetic, hiding drywall/floor wear and tear, and oftentimes preventing water damage from spreading. Sometimes water damage is obvious, you can see or hear it on your flooring. However, other times it can be much more subtle. Cracks, swelling, bubbling, separation, and peeling are all signs of water damage beneath your baseboards or even behind your drywall. In situations like this, when water damage is noticed around or near the baseboards it is strongly recommended to remove all baseboards in the affected area. Here is a Before and After picture of SERVPRO of East Erie and Warren Counties baseboard removal in a local home.
