What causes basement flooding with Mister Plumber?

Basement flooding can be caused due to various factors such as leakage in the basement or foundation of a house, poor drainage system, and blocked home and primary sewer connection. In addition, rainwater, backflow of sewer water, and a failed sump pump can also accumulate water in the basement. Furthermore, if there are cracks in walls, and windows or debris accumulating over eavestroughs and downspouts, it can also prevent the water from flowing into the drainage.

How can you prevent your basement from flooding?

You can take several steps against flooding before it even begins. Some won’t require much effort, while others would need a professional hand. Sealing cracks in walls, and windows, keeping your drain clean, and repairing weeping tile systems and sump pumps will help prevent flooding. You must also make sure to clear debris and obstructions that prevent water from flowing to the storm sewer.

Further steps that you can take must ensure that the water flows down and away from your home instead of accumulating in your basement. Clear eavestroughs and downspouts, and if feasible you can also disconnect the downspouts.
