Have a Flooded Basement?

5/1/2019 (Permalink)

Whether you have a finished basement or one that you venture down to, you need to know how to keep your basement dry and safe. A flooded basement can pose many threats including mold, pipe damage, and fire hazards – and the basement can be the prime culprit.

SERVPRO is Here With Reliable Water Damage Services 

A basement can flood at any time, although most basement flooding occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and normally built partly or entirely below ground level.  

There are plenty of reasons why your Aberdeen or Holmdel basement could flood, including:

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure

If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.
