DANGERS OF FLOODED BASEMENTS
Floods in a basement can occur for various reasons. For instance, sump pumps sometimes fail to handle heavy rainfall due to power outages or faulty equipment. This device should send water from the basement to a nearby drain, but that doesn’t always happen.
Insufficient drainage around the basement walls, plumbing leaks, sewer system issues, and foundation cracks could also be the problem.
Whatever the reason, it’s imperative to respond quickly to the flood to avoid complications. A damp basement can lead to:
- Warped or weakened basement walls
- Mold or mildew growth
- Exposure to harmful bacteria in sewage or wastewater
- Foundation damage
