Storm Damage Pumping out basements Pumping out water from basement

While Sandy is fresh in the mind of every American, it's far from the first storm to cause flooding in basements in our Country. Losing electrical power can lead to basement flooding if your sump pump only uses electricity. That increases your chance of damaged stored items and mold growth. Plus, staying warm becomes a challenge as the temperature drops and you can't turn on your heater.

"If you don't have any power in your house and you have water in the basement, you shouldn't be in the house," says the  Fire Department Chief, who says safety is the foremost issue.

If your basement is flooded with water from the storm, the first order of business is drying it out.

Don't go in the basement if it floods and you have power.

 Once you're ready to tackle the basement, it's time to call us (516) 742-1008.
