Flooded Basements


Flooded Basements

Is your basement flooded?

A flooded basement can be a disaster; destroying valuables and compromising the integrity of your home. Vacuuming the water out can be a timely and difficult process, especially during those rainstorms in the middle of the night! Simply removing standing water in your basement will not solve the more significant problems associated with flooded basements. Water coming in through the walls of your basement or crawlspace will weaken the foundation over time. Additionally, moisture in the air causes mildew and mold to grow, which can compromise your respiratory system producing symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, headaches, difficulty breathing, and in more serious cases, asthma and pneumonitis.

Correcting Basement Water Problems

Lack of proper drainage causes pooling water around your basement which leads to hydrostatic pressure on the walls. When left unattended this pressure can result in foundation damage, causing foundation cracks, bowed walls, and foundation settlement. Budget Dry has methods of controlling and preventing this water pressure build up. Whether it is through sub floor drains, the use of sump pumps or exterior curtain drain, we have a solution for you!
