How to Prevent Basement Flooding
A basement flooding can occur at any time, but there are things you can do to potentially prevent a flood from ever happening. You want to be sure there are no cracks in the foundation, or walls that would allow water to leak through and that everything is sealed properly. You also need to make sure that there are no cracked, broken, or clogged pipes and that your drainage system is running correctly. Gutters around your home should be cleared from any debris so that when it rains the water flows correctly and away from your home. Most importantly, you want to make sure your drainage tile system and sump pump are working 100% effectively. If the drainage tile around your foundation is not running correctly, your sump pump will never receive the excess water to pump out your basement. Taking all these measures will save you from thousands of dollars in damage and prevent your basement from flooding.
The Danger of Basement Flooding A lot of dangerous events can occur when your basement floods. Minor things may be damaged, loss of personal belongings, need to replace flooring and drywall. Major dangers that can occur may be the foundation or walls cracking. If water gets backed up into the basement, you risk being exposed to all types of dirt, diseases, and bacteria. If not cleaned up properly and in a timely manner, you not only risk spending thousands of dollars to fix your basement and replace your belongings but also risk your and your family’s health.
