Common Causes of Basement Flooding
Basements are the lowest point on any property, leaving them the most vulnerable to flooding. Besides plumbing issues, other common causes of a flooded basement include:
- Heavy rainfall
- A leaky foundation
- No sump pump
- Poorly working gutters
- Poorly sloped yard
- Improper sealing of the walls and flooring
If your basement floods, you’re at risk for secondary damage, such as mold and moisture problems. The best way to avoid all types of water damage is to take quick action—dry out damp areas as quickly as possible. The longer building materials are exposed to warm, humid conditions, the higher chance of additional problems. Call us anytime for basement flood repair. We’ve available 24/7.

What Should You Do If You Discover You Have a Flooded Basement?
You get home, and to your surprise, the basement is flooded. You want to start by determining the cause of flooding and figuring out whether the basement is actively flooding, meaning water is still flowing. If the source of floodwater is inside the building, we recommend shutting off your water supply.
