What Causes Basements To Flood?
Basements are the lowest point in a home and tend to flood first during any kind of water emergency. Having your basement flooded is a hard thing to see. Water intrusions can occur in basements from sources inside and outside the structure. Excessive rain or snow melt can oversaturate the ground, resulting in hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure occurs when moisture outside of the basement or foundational wall exceeds the pressure inside. Water will naturally seek the lower pressure, resulting in foundational leaks and even cracks. Without a proper waterproofing system in the basement, water will gather in the basement with no way to escape.
As you can expect, this type of water damage can really impact the basement and take away your living area. That’s why ServiceMaster by Singer is who you should rely on to deal with such a problem, because we are fast, efficient, and have the right solution to recover from a flooded basement.
