Most of the time, the water in your house is much appreciated. Take a pot of boiling spaghetti, a hot shower, or a load of laundry spinning in the washing machine, for example. The moment water enters your basement, however, you know you’ve got a problem on your hands.
Fortunately, the plumbing team at Princeton Air has you covered should a plumbing emergency ever arise in your basement.
Even a Little Basement Water Is a Problem
The basement is the most common site for indoor moisture issues. Water often infiltrates basements due to poor insulation and unsealed cracks in the foundation, resulting in high humidity. It may also enter the basement due to:
Dripping from a leaky faucet
Flooding from a broken pipe
Poor drainage around the house
Blocked gutter system
A malfunctioning water heater
A broken sump pump
What to Do When Your Basement Floods
Whatever the cause of your basement flooding, you should know that even a little basement water is a problem. Removing the water from the basement and running a dehumidifier may temporarily relieve your water woes, but it’s important to pinpoint the root cause of incoming water to prevent future flooding.
At the first sign of water, be sure to contact a plumbing specialist who can diagnose and repair the issue.
