Flooded Basement Dos and Don’ts

Do call for help immediately!  You don’t have to wait for your insurance company to take charge.  They’re not responsible for getting your flooded basement cleaned up.  You are, so take charge and call for professional help immediately!

Do stop the source of the water!  If the water is still flowing and you can identify the source, turn it off.  Whether it’s a toilet that’s overflowing or a busted pipe, shut off the water source to make sure no further flooding occurs.

Do turn off the electricity to the basement!  It could be the case that the flooding has reach electrical cords or live outlets, which obviously presents a dangerous electrical hazard.  Find your home’s circuit panel and shut off any circuits that are feeding electricity to your flooded basement.

Do remove any furniture or items that haven’t been soaked but could get wet!  If there are things that you can safely get to and remove that haven’t been flood damaged but are at risk of getting damaged, remove them and put them in a safe place away from the basement flooding.

Do call to file a claim!  If you plan on filing an insurance claim and you’ve followed the steps above, you can go ahead and call your agent and explain what happened.  You’ll want to have your policy number handy and they’ll be able to begin the processing of opening a claim on your behalf.  They might also require a written notice on top of a verbal notice!

Don’t enter the basement if it’s a sewage back-up.  If the source of the flooding is a sewage back-up and you have raw sewer water in your basement, don’t go down there.  Just call a professional restoration company and let them deal with what is a highly toxic situation.

Don’t call a non-certified basement flood cleaning company.  Some companies advertise themselves as restoration companies but lack the certifications required by most insurance carriers.  Make sure you choose a certified company so that the basement water extraction is done properly!  Only a certified flood damage company can perform each step necessary to ensure your basement is safe to be in and free from further damage!

Don’t get black mold from a wet basement!


basement-moldWater in basements happen.  It’s the most susceptible part of your property to flooding, and if you live in the house long enough, chances are your basement will flood at some point.  But the water damage should never result in black mold if you deal with the situation immediately. Black mold grows whenever the opportunity presents itself, and the gates are wide open when excess moisture soaks your walls or any other surfaces it can feast on.

Exactly how long do you have before you get mold?  It varies, but usually it is around 2-3 days.  That should give you some sense for how aggressive it can be, and how important it is that you hire an emergency basement flooding company to get the moisture out quickly!
