Poor Drainage Around Home Causes Flooded Basement in Ken Caryl?

8/14/2023 (Permalink)

We restore water damage 24 hours a day in Jefferson County.

Our Lakewood and Ken Caryl team restores flooding damage 24 hours a day and has for over forty years. One of the top reasons for flooding in homes is inadequate drainage outside of the structure. Here are some things you can do to create proper drainage around your home and prevent water intrusion from a flooding event from the Insurance Information Institute:

  • Install rain gutters
  • Install downspouts
  • Grade the soil around the perimeter of the home or building to slope away from the structure
  • Clean and maintain rain gutters
  • Inspect downspouts to ensure they point away from the home and into drainage systems
  • Install backflow valves on sewer lines to prevent sewage from backing up into your home during a flood
  • Waterproof basement walls by applying waterproof coatings or sealants to create a barrier to water intrusion
  • Seal cracks, openings, and gaps in foundation walls, floors, windows, and doors using sealants and caulking materials to prevent water seepage
  • Install flood barriers or shields to protect water entry points like doors and windows
