With spring on the way, basement flooding is a potential problem that homeowners need to begin thinking about. Although basement flooding can occur for a variety of reasons beyond the homeowner's control, it is especially important to think about at this time of year. The Northeast has seen quite a lot of snow in recent months, and when the springtime rains begin to hit the already saturated ground, the water will need a place to go.
Basement flooding can happen for many different reasons, including the area your home is built upon, a malfunction in your basement drainage system, a failed sump pump, faults in the foundation of your home, among many other reasons.
