What to Do When Your Basement Floods
A flooded basement can quickly lead to more serious issues if left unresolved by a professional team. While it’s critical to contact a professional plumber the moment you realize a flood has formed in your basement, it’s equally important to take the necessary steps on your own to help mitigate damage. Taking the following steps can help you save money on needed repairs and replacement following a flood:
- Remove the water: If you have access to one, use a wet vac to remove standing water from the area. For minor flooding, soaking up excess water with towels will suffice.
- Dry the area: Use dehumidifiers and fans to circulate air and prevent against mold growth, keeping the dehumidifiers at least six inches from the wall for the best air movement.
- Clean the floors: Disinfect the area once it’s dry to prevent against mold growth using one cup of bleach to one gallon of water.
Once your plumbing professional arrives, they’ll be able to assess the drains and plumbing fixtures in your basement to identify the source of the flood. Get the rapid basement flooding services you need by contacting Len The Plumber today.

Basement Flood FAQs
Will insurance cover the cost of basement flood services?

Is a flooded basement dangerous?
A damp or wet basement can present a serious health hazard to residents. When left untreated, damp areas of the home can quickly become consumed by mold, mildew, and fungus — all of which are known to contribute to serious respiratory issues. If a basement flood occurs in your home, it’s best to contact a professional team immediately to address the issue.
Why does my basement keep flooding?
Basements are more prone to flooding simply because of their location in the home. However, some basements can experience more floods than others due to issues in the foundation floor, sewage backup, water line issues, and other plumbing-related problems. If your home frequently experiences basement flooding, don’t hesitate to contact Len The Plumber to have our team quickly and efficiently resolve the problem.
