Flooded Basements Caused By Saturated Ground
TIPP CITY -- If all the water outside your home ever gets inside, it could cause major damage.ServPro of Dayton had more than 20 calls on Friday morning for flooded basements. "The ground is so saturated with water that it will start to overload sump pumps," says ServPro Lead Production Technician Joel Pontig.Cindy Brown of Tipp City woke up to gushing water coming out of her sump pump Friday morning, so she quickly called ServPro to start extracting water from her basement."You just know it's going to be expensive, it's going to cost you a day off work or maybe more and then it's going to cost a lot of time and effort to get things moved," says Brown.Before she called ServPro, Brown called her insurance agent and since it was due to an act of mother nature, she should be covered under her flood insurance.It will take ServPro about three to five days to dry out Brown's basement."You can't do this by yourself and if you don't take care of the mold not only is it bad for your health but it's also challenging for re-sale if you want to sell your house," says Brown.When it comes to storm or water damage, like Brown, be sure to call your insurance agent first.Most natural disaster that do not involve water, like wind knocking a tree on your house, will be covered by homeowners insurance. But flood damage requires a separate flood insurance policy so it is best to double check your policy and also your deductible. And if you have standing water anywhere, do not wait for an insurance adjustor, get it removed immediately to prevent more damage.
