Common Causes of Home Flooding

12/3/2021 (Permalink)

With record-high rainfall accumulations across New York State this year, it is no surprise that we are seeing more and more water-related remediation needs. Here are the most common causes of home flooding:

  • Poor basement sealing
  • Drainage tile failure
  • Debris in the gutters
  • Broken, cracked or clogged pipes
  • Hot water tank failure
  • Sump pump failure

To avoid major home damage from flooding or water you should be inspecting your home regularly to ensure all your water sources or protectants are intact. Even the smallest amount of water damage can lead to more serious mold issues if not addressed properly. Sometimes though, as we are seeing throughout the Northeast, weather is unpredictable and unrelenting. With many water issues, time is of the essence. SERVPRO of Columbia and Greene Counties knows an immediate response to water damage helps to minimize repair, cleaning, and restoration cost and will respond to any size disaster the fastest with 24/7 emergency response.
