Flooded Basement? Here Are Some Key Tips

Basement flood in Kennewick, WA We can dry your basement quickly

A basement can flood at any time; although this is the season we see the most flood damage because flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall and snow melt. Basements are naturally prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a structure and are generally built partially or completely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Kennewick, WA basement could flood, including:

  • A blocked or failed sewer pipe
  • Heavy rain causing exterior water to collect near your structure
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage damage
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

If flood water is not controlled rapidly and correctly, it can endanger your health and safety, and cause extreme damage to your building. Remember, If you act fast then there is a good chance you can restore the property and damaged materials instead of replacing them; saving you money and time.


  1. Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water.
  2. Do not walk through moving water. Even six inches of moving water can make you fall.
  3. Use no open flames (there may be gas escaping from ruptured mains).
  4. Avoid floodwaters. Water may be contaminated by oil, gasoline or raw sewage. Water may also be electrically charged.
  5. Stay out of any building if it is surrounded by flood waters
  6. Return only when authorities indicate it's safe.
