April Showers Bring… Water Damage

April Showers Water Damage

April showers don’t just bring May flowers. Heavy rains also lead to water damage.

April showers don’t just bring May flowers. They can also bring water damage if you aren’t careful. Heavy rains, pooling water, and sump pump malfunctions can lead to basement flooding. Once water begins to pool, it will look for somewhere to run, which is typically along your home’s foundation, down into your basement, and into your sump pump basin. This should trigger your sump pump to start working and pump the water out of your home and away from the foundation.

Your sump pump is your last line of defense against flooding. If it fails, you could be in for some trouble. Just a few inches of water can cause thousands of dollars in damage. The average water damage claim is $5,531. So it is important to act quickly when faced with a flooded basement.

What to Do If Your Basement Floods

Don’t panic. There are several steps you need to take to remove the water and ensure the damage is contained.

Contact Your Insurance Company

Take pictures or video to document any and all damage. This will be very helpful when you go to file a claim with your insurance company. Without such evidence, your insurance company could fail to pay enough to cover the full extent of the damage or worse, deny your claim altogether.
