Related Water Damage Questions & Answers

Here are some of the common reasons of flooded basements:

  1. Cracks in the Foundation: When your basement’s foundation develops cracks, it can allow water to seep in during heavy rains or snowmelt, leading to basement flooding.

  2. Dirty Downspouts and Gutters: Clogged or improperly functioning downpouts and gutters can result in water overflowing and pooling around your foundation, increasing the risk of basement flooding.

  3. Leaving Window Wells Uncovered: Neglecting to cover window wells can allow rainwater to accumulate, potentially leading to water infiltration through basement windows, and causing flooding.

  4. Failing to Maintain Your Sump Pump: A neglected or malfunctioning sump pump may be unable to effectively pump out excess water, leaving your basement vulnerable to flooding during wet conditions.

  5. Regrading Your Lawn: Poor lawn grading that directs water toward your home rather than away from it can lead to water pooling around your foundation, increasing the risk of basement flooding.

  6. Failed Water Leak Sensor: Inadequate maintenance or malfunctioning water leak sensors can result in a lack of timely detection, allowing leaks or flooding to go unnoticed until significant damage has already occurred in the basement.

Follow these steps to remove and dry out water from your basement.

  1. Shut off power

  2. The outside water level should be lower than the water inside

  3. Soak up water with towels if its less than 2 in

  4. Pump out water with a wet vac or sump pump

  5. Circulate air in the water-damaged area

  6. Clean the floors and drains

  7. Clean the drainage system by hand

  8. Wash walls and masonry with a high-pressure washer

  9. Replace any damaged drywall and insulation

Mold can start to grow within 24 to 48 hours of exposure to moisture.

When water damage occurs, the excess moisture can create the ideal environment for mold to grow, especially in areas with poor ventilation or where water has pooled. Mold can grow on a variety of surfaces, including drywall, wood, carpeting, and insulation, among others.

Mold growth can cause a variety of health problems, especially for those with allergies or respiratory issues. Symptoms of mold exposure may include coughing, wheezing, sneezing, itchy eyes, and skin irritation, among others.

The cost of water damage cleanup depends on the severity and the areas of the damage. On average, it will cost approximately $3000 to over $15000. However, most of the time, the expense will be fully covered through insurance.

The amount of time it takes to restore a water-damaged house depends on how severe the damage is and the size of the damage. It can take as little as 72 hours to a couple of weeks.

Water damage jeopardizes your house’s structure and can cause major destruction like ceiling collapse, cracks, contamination, and mold growth. It requires advanced drying technologies and professional water damage repair technicians to restore your property safely. Therefore, water damage is not a small expense.

My sump pump recently went out over night and I had gotten water in my crawlspace and familyroom. Joe sent his team out the very next morning for me. His team was very professional and courteous. They cleaned up all the areas where there was water. Fans and dehumidifiers were left for a few days to make sure the affected areas were completely dry. They came in and did moisture readings before deciding to remove the equipment. I am so glad that Joe and his team were the ones that helped me out in the critical situation.
