Every year, homeowners are forced to deal with flooding in their basement. The dangers and threats it poses can wreak serious damage.
- Weakened foundation – Your home’s foundation is its most important structural element. Flooding and water can undermine the foundation, and result in warping and cracking of the walls it supports.
- Mold and mildew infestation – Dampness and moisture from water and humidity in your basement can result in serious health issues for you and your family. Mold spores grow and thrive in damp environments, and cause respiratory, skin, and eye issues to those who are sensitive to molds.
- Electrical problems – Electrical power that continues to flow in a wet basement is a life-or-death issue. Never attempt to cut or restore power in a basement that is wet or has standing water.
