Today we will to teach you what to do when you unfortunately discover water or sewage in your basement.
There are various reasons why water has gotten into your basement.
If after a rain your basement foundation walls are damaged by water, the problem lies in waterproofing.
If the water did not get to electrical devices, you are more or less in a safe situation. If it does not smell bad, there are no life-threatening bacteria and viruses, and it is most likely just common rainwater. Having said that, if the water remains there for extended periods of time, it may cause moisture and cause molding in your basement.
When the water smells bad or there is sewage, which usually appear near the floor drain, it is a drain problem. Make sure the water does not come in contact with any electrical appliances and, if possible, we recommend to turn them off. Also, try not to avoid the backup water, which is likely to contain bacteria and viruses.
Basement flooding is possible during heavy rains when the city sewage cannot cope with the flow, and backup water can get into your basement.
All these sewage problems, problems with wet walls in your basement, and waterproofing issues can easily be solved with a single call. After the assessment and inspection with a camera, we can carry out drain cleaning, partial replacement of pipes, the complete replacement of pipes, installing backwater valve and a sump pump.
