Stop the source of the water if you can. If it’s a toilet that’s overflowing, turn the shut off valves. If it’s washing machine that won’t stop gushing water, do the same. You can always just shut off the main water supply to house. In any event, do what you can to stop the flow of water as quickly as possible.
Call us or another certified basement flood restoration company immediately. You do not have to call your insurance company and wait for them to take the lead. In fact, they’re just going to tell you to call a provider and get the basement water cleaned up quickly. The sooner work begins the less they’ll end having to pay to cover your loss.
Shut off any electrical circuits in the affected area. It might be the case the flooded basement could send water into electrical outlets or over live chords that could cause an extreme hazard. If so, go to your panel and shut off any circuits serving electricity to the flooded area.
Remove any items that are in danger of getting soaked. If there are things you can safely carry out of your basement that might get soaked, carry them upstairs to a dry area.

The process for cleaning up every basement will differ depending on the extent of water damage. But we realize you’re probably curious how you go from the mess you see now to how you remember your basement looking. So feel free to watch the video below to get a better sense for the basement water damage cleanup process:
Most people are taken back by just how quickly mold damage occurs. We see the results of delay every day. Mold needs some moisture and some food (your home’s structures) and some time. Just how much time? About 24 to 48 hours. That isn’t much time for us to perform the water cleanup and drying process, so if you have a flooded basement, please call us now so we can make sure you don’t get toxic mold!
We offer a mold-free guarantee on all of our work!
Gutters and downspouts!
They’re such an obvious thing, but something people often take for granted and it ends up costing them. Have you ever watched your gutters during a rain storm? Is water flowing over them or through your soffits? If so, you’ve got a problem on your hands that will eventually result in getting water in your basement. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are doing their job of transporting water away from your foundation!
Sump pump (with a generator!!!)
With any basement flooding prevention techniques, it’s important to weigh the risks with the costs of any methods you might consider to stop water from entering your property. And that’s especially true when it comes to deciding whether to install a sump pump along with a backup power source. While the entire system can run into the thousands of dollars, if you live in an area that is susceptible to flooding and you have a finished basement, it may be well worth it!
