Flooding Can Become a Substantial Threat When The Water Cannot Get Sufficiently Drained From The Property.

Basement flooding has been a common problem for the Concord area for generations. As many potential solutions exist to waterproof basements and prevent further exposure of these subterranean levels, hydrostatic pressure and other forces can still permit water penetration under the right conditions. Water diversion equipment and fixtures like floor drains are vital to reducing the probability of standing water in this lower level of the property.

When these floor drains and diversion tactics become clogged or blocked, flood damage in Concord homes becomes inevitable. Natural flooding can introduce multiple types of debris and solids to your house, making the blockage of floor drains more likely than you might think. Once this grating becomes covered, water can begin pooling based on the severity of the house's flooding conditions. The solution is to pursue effective flood removal solutions that can also address circulating debris and solids in this standing water, such as:

Should I Evaluate if Water Diversion and Removal Tactics Are Working?

While your methods of moving water from your basement level might be useful for the past several decades, changing conditions and the degradation of the property itself might require a more direct approach to relocating penetrating floodwater. If drains are not working as they should, you might consider installing a sump pump and the grading of your basement floor or installing pipe and trenches to direct water to this constructed pump pit.

Flooding can sometimes happen without much warning and overwhelm water diversion pathways installed in the lower levels of your property as the floor drains. Our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team can help with both the restoration of this damage to your house and long-term solutions to more effectively prevent flooding in the future.
