Summer typically brings a good amount of rainfall. As much as we all love the warmer weather, heavy rain can cause stress for many families. Those who are located in flood zones, have cracks in their foundations, or simply have a bad sump pump, will all, unfortunately, experience some sort of water damage. Water damage may occur occasionally for some, while others may have water damages each time that it rains. Having flood insurance and/or fixing cracks in your homes foundation can help to alleviate the stresses that come with water damages.
Why does my basement flood when it rains?
When the ground absorbs the water, the water needs somewhere to expel. The ground will eventually become saturated and need to get rid of the water that it has absorbed. Where does the water go? The rain drains into cracks in your homes foundation and creates havoc for your basement. In the event that your basement has standing water, it’s also important to understand the possible hazards.
If there are any electrical wires, outlets, cords, or the like, in the area, then it’s important that you do not enter the standing water. SERVPRO® of Hancock County is committed to keeping your family safe and getting your home back to normal as fast and efficiently as possible.
