All Truth About FLOODING in Your Basement 

Hello readers!

We are so happy to see you here again!

Thank you for your attention, and time which you spend on our blog.

Today we will be talking about wet basements.
The question is: Whether or not this problem is worth your time?

With many years of plumbing experience under our belts, we can see the issue from another prospective, and have many examples of it:

Case 1- Often times we receive calls early in the morning, and they all have a similar plot-Please help! I can't understand what happened, but there seems to be the river in my basement. It flows everywhere, and smells very bad. Please help me as soon as possible!

Case 2- It was raining all day, and in the evening we receive an emergency call - Can you come now, for some reason my basement is all wet!

Case 3- Another common occurrence in our call centre is: Can you please come and dry my basement? I have tried to do it either by myself or with other guys, but did not receive any results.

Let us explain what can happen with your home when it has a wet basement.

  1. 1. If you wish to sell your home, with a wet basement you are out of luck. As we know people do not like losing money. So, when they decide to buy a property the idea of having to spend more money for the fix is repelling. Also if you do get your home basement waterproofed it will attract more buyers.

  2. 2. In order for you and your family to have a safe home there must not be any mold. If you do not face the problem of waterproofing your basement, you risk getting mold in your basement. This mold will be invisible, and will be slowly killing you and your family. Then, after you find the mold it will take you years to get it out of your house. So, would it not just be easier to protect your home from the start and onwards?

  3. 3. The last point is minor but VERY annoying. THE SMELL! The smell of a wet basement is like the smell of the city draining system on a maintenance day, DISGUSTING!

Unfortunately, most homes will get wet basements if they are not maintained properly. This is why we post these articles on our blog. We want to inform you of a potential problem before it happens, and let the professionals deal with it.

Trust your home with Metro Plumbing and Drains to guarantee a safe and comfortable environment for yourself and
your family.

Please do yourself a favor and do not wait until it is too late.
