Common Risks for a Basement Flood [Infographic]

Common Risks for a Basement Flood

Wondering how to best protect your basement from floods? You’re not alone. Water damage can be expensive, not to mention a headache for you and a possible risk to your valuables.

Here are the most common risks for basement water damage.

Sump Pump Failure

Your sump pump removes any moisture from your basement. Without it, water will build up and cause damage.

Plumbing Leaks

Even a slow leak will cause water damage over time. If you suspect you have a leak but can’t find the source, call in a plumber to snuff it out.

Poor Sealing

If your basement is not sealed correctly, water will find a way in, even if incredibly slowly. If you find openings in your basement, contact a professional to fix them.

Clogged Gutters

Your gutters are meant to divert water from your home. When they’re full of leaves and other debris, water will flow down your walls and into your basement.
