Flooded Basement Bronxville
How Not To Flood A Basement
Basements flood regularly in Bronxville whether do to snow, rain, or plumbing, so 911 Restoration Westchester and our flooded basement Bronxville operatives compiled a list of ways to keep your home from suffering such a fate.
- Insulate your plumbing during the winter. Basements are meant to house your water line below ground level to keep the temperature a little warmer. You can aid in this effort by insulating the pipes, keeping your heater on, and opening any doors separating them from said heat.
- Shift your downspouts so that they send water away from the foundation of your building. If rain gutters end up sending all the precipitation to the base of your property during storms, they are doing more harm than good, as the water weight will eat through the foundation and flood your basement.
- Know who to call in case of an emergency. 911 Restoration is always ready to help you and will file your insurance claim to reduce hassle and maximize recovery. We may even be able to finish your unfinished basement as part of the process with our fresh start plan so call now.
