Flooded Basement? Call ServiceMaster of Baltimore

Flooded Basement BaltimoreAs we explained in our blog last week, your home, no matter where you live in Baltimore, is at risk of flooding. Even a home in a “low risk” area can experience some degree of flooding. This is because there are more forces at work than just nature, including manmade forces, such as plumbing, sump pumps, and the like. When one of these manmade contraptions fails, the end result could be a flooded basement.

What to do with a Flooded Basement?

  1. First and foremost, stay away! This is for health and safety reasons. For starters, floodwaters may contain contaminants such as oil, gasoline, and even raw sewage. Then there is also the risk of electric shock.
  2. If the source of the flooding is a burst pipe and you can safely reach the main shut off, do so and turn off the water.
  3. If the source of the flooding is a sewage backup or burst sewage pipe, do not flush the toilet, run the washing machine, dishwasher, or any other appliance with a drain. This would only exacerbate the situation.
  4. Call the professionals. Depending on the source of the flooding, you may need to call a plumber to help rectify the situation. You will also need a water damage restoration company, like ServiceMaster of Baltimore, to safely remove the water and begin the drying process. The sooner this happens, the less time water has to damage your property.
  5. Call your insurance company and file a claim. Make sure you take lots of photos.
