Basement flooding is a nightmare for any homeowner. Apart from making your basement unusable, a basement flood can ruin many items and create a serious safety hazard.
If you're forced to deal with this disaster, stay calm and follow this 4-step recovery program.
This could be a burst or leaking pipe, a leaking waste line, a broken supply hose for your washing machine, or a leaking water tank or water heater.
Leaky basement windows.
If your window wells fill with water (from a flooded yard or clogged gutters), don’t be surprised if water leaks into the basement through and around the windows.
Leaky basement foundation.
This is by far the most common cause of basement flooding. Fortunately, it’s a problem that Basement Systems can solve by installing a warranted, industry-leading waterproofing system.
Don't risk serious injury if your basement floods. A flooded basement can be a serious health and safety risk. If your basement floods, follow these rules to make sure your family stays safe.
Sometimes the source of unwanted water is obvious –as with a burst water line, for example. In other cases, water may be leaking into your basement in different areas (see “Possible causes,” at right). After the water has been pumped out of your basement, contact an expert at Basement Systems for a free waterproofing inspection and estimate. Your Basement Systems technician will explain what causes basement water problems, and how a waterproofing system works to keep your basement dry.
Are there wood-framed walls finished with drywall in your basement? If so, the lower section of these walls is likely to retain moisture and attract mold –even without a major basement flood. Talk to your Basement Systems expert about our innovative EverLast half-wall replacement system, which enables you to replace only the moisture-damaged and mold-prone lower wall section with an attractive and waterproof wainscot treatment.
The patented perimeter drain and sump pump system available exclusively from Basement Systems is the most effective basement waterproofing system available.
