Heavy Spring Storms Cause Basement Flooding

The month of April in New Jersey saw a lot of sudden heavy rain storms, which caused a lot of excess ground water. In some instances, sump pumps either failed or could not keep up with the water intake. Ground water will also seep in from basement walls and up through the floor due to hydrostatic pressure, even through casement windows. 

If you know a heavy storm is predicted, there are steps you can take to make sure water drains away from your home and not near the foundation, which will alleviate some issues with groundwater flooding.

SERVPRO of Hackensack / Little Ferry has experience restoring businesses and homes affected by storms and flooding.
