Storms and Basements
Basements are vulnerable to flooding, because they're built partially if not fully below ground. When a home is constructed, the basement tiles and foundation need to be sealed properly. This is especially important in areas that are prone to heavy rain, tornadoes, hurricanes, or other severe weather events. Tornadoes and hurricanes are violent wind storms and plenty of rain falls which may lead to a flooded basement. Even areas that are prone to snow storms are in danger of melting snow seeping into a poorly sealed basement and causing flooding. If your basement floods during all or most rainstorms, this may be the cause. This was the case at this Evansville, IN home. Our SERVPRO team of professionals quickly assessed the damage and restored the basement back to it's original state, "Like it never even happened."
