Any basement waterproofing contractor knows that flooding is one of the worst nightmares for homeowners. When basement flooding happens, it causes significant and costly damage to the building and to the goods stored inside it. The number one issue that property owners need to solve is identifying the root cause of the flooding.

There are two scenarios that can occur: flooding during dry weather and flooding during rainy weather. When you experience basement flooding when there is no rain or melting snow, basement flooding repair specialists usually find that the cause is either a blocked sanitary lateral or foundation drainage failure.

However, during rain, basement flooding is caused by surface inflow when the soil is oversaturated with water or foundation drainage failure. 

Reasons for Foundation Drainage Failure

As noted above, the most common cause of basement flooding in either dry and wet weather is foundation drainage failure. But what exactly does this mean? The main causes of this issue are:

  • Seepage, when the water table in your area rises and water finds its way through small cracks in the foundation
  • The sump pump malfunctions
  • The weeping tile is deteriorated
  • The sewer backs up

In order to identify the reason for foundation drainage failure, you should call a waterproofing specialist. 

What You Can Do to Prevent Basement Flooding

After finishing the basement flooding cleanup and restoration, you definitely want to prevent this issue from ever occurring again. Thankfully, there are several things you can do to avoid this problem in the future.

Flooded basement cleanup companies recommend:

  • Inspecting lateral lines for clogging and root intrusion
  • Grading the landscape away from the foundation to prevent water from pooling around it
  • Making sure that the downspouts are at least five feet away from the foundation
  • Cleaning pipes with a snake every year to remove buildup
  • Calling a professional contractor for basement restoration and waterproofing

How to Minimize Basement Flooding Damage 

Now, let us focus on what you can do to minimize damage and flooded basement cleanup cost. As soon as you observe that your basement is flooded, remain calm and:

  • Turn off the electricity and gas to avoid hazards
  • Call the emergency basement flooding company
  • Remove all valuable items to prevent further damage
  • Start removing the water by mopping

If you cannot safely turn off electricity and gas, call the utility providers, explain that you are experiencing basement flooding, and ask them to turn them off for you.
