The Weather Channel named 2019, "One of Wettest Years on Record," Basement Systems, Inc. agrees that now, more than ever, is the time that homeowners need to think about preventative care and repair for their homes.

Flooding in a home or basement can be a serious issue. Water is a perfect breeding ground for mold. This makes basements smell musty, which affects a homeowner’s quality of life in their home. It can also mean soil has softened beneath the foundation, causing portions of the home to sink.

In a recent broadcast by The Weather Channel, titled, “5 Things to Look for in March,” Meteorologist Danielle Banks reports, “Spring flooding across the Ohio Valley, Mississippi Valley, Red River Valley, and across portions of New England.” Homeowners in these areas may be affected by spring flooding in their home or basement. In times of heavy rain, even homeowners not in the immediately affected areas may experience water seepage into the home.

Below are three recommended steps to take if you are a homeowner experiencing flooding in your basement:

  • Contact a disaster restoration company to help pump out the water in the basement or home.
  • Call your insurance company to find out what's covered under your homeowners insurance policy.
  • Contact your local basement waterproofing contractor to get an estimate on having a water control system installed.

A natural disaster is impossible to prevent. However, it is possible for homeowners to take measures to prevent further damage in their homes or basements. Basement Systems, Inc. has hundreds of local professionals nationwide who provide proven waterproofing methods and patented Basement Systems products.
