There are many reasons for why flooding may happen in your basement, but one of the most common causes of basement flooding is due to heavy rainfall. In situations with heavy rainfall, the sewers are often affected because they may not be able to handle the sudden and significant amounts of rainwater.
As the Local Water Authority does not maintain the sewers, it affects the performance of your sewers and can cause the sewer flaps to be jammed open. In situations with heavy rainfall, this can cause the sewer to become backed-up, resulting in water leaking into your basement. Basements are below ground level which means that they are the lowest point of a property which makes it prone to flooding.
On the main road, there may be as many as ten outlets called sewer flaps and when one sewer flap becomes jammed open due to a lack of maintenance, it could affect the whole road as there could be ten properties that go to that last point in the manhole. The combination of the sewer backing up and the sewer flap being jammed open by your property can lead to your basement being flooded.
Basement flooding can happen at any time and it can be caused by a variety of reasons, whether it’s due to heavy rainfall, rapid melting of snow, major storms, or backed up sewers. Both residential and commercial properties with basements are prone to flooding and when you do experience a flooding situation, it’s important to call a professional flood drainage company.
Sometimes, flood water can become contaminated with sewage waste which results in the water carrying harmful substances to your property, increasing the health risks. If flooding occurs due to a backed-up sewer, you need a professional with the right equipment who can safely clean up the flood.
