Flooded Basement Dobbs Ferry
Pipe leaks are common reasons for flooded basements. They usually occur due to pipe freeze, preexisting damage, or clogs.
A pipe freeze can usually be prevented by turning off your water line when you leave for an extended period of time, leaving your heater on to heat your pipes throughout the winter, and wrapping the water line in insulation to help with the afore mentioned goal.
An annual inspection on your plumbing will ensure you that no damage exists, or, if it does, the inspector will inform you of which pieces need to be replaced before leaks occur.
Clogs are a bit trickier in that they require specialized equipment and cannot always be caught preemptively. The best way to keep your water flow moving is be cautious about what you flush, take note of any decrease in water pressure, and familiarize yourself with the main water shut off so that if water breaks through your pipes, you can immediately shut it off.
