Winter is approaching, beware of basement floods!
At any point - and it usually feels like the worst - a disaster can occur. You flick on the basement lights and see the carpet glistening. Low and behold there is 2-3 inches of water covering your entire basement. The old couch you had in your first apartment, all the pictures of the kids that were stacked in cardboard boxes, and the custom knit hats from grandma, everything is ruined! There are a number of different ways that water can slip into your basement, such as;
- Surface water from heavy rains that can pool around your home
- Water supply-line break or hot-water tank
- Sanitary sewer backup
- Storm sewer backup
- Foundation drainage failure
- A sewer pipe that is blocked or cracked
- And many more
Basements are prone to flooding, and with the winter months approaching your pipes are in danger of bursting. If flood water is not handled in a timely manner not only will it cost you more money to fix, it will be dangerous to yourself and the people living with/around you. Don’t wait until the problem gets worse, call SERVPRO of Long Beach/Oceanside and keep your home safe!
