Cause of Basement flooding

The main causes of basement flooding include drainage failure and improper sewage backup prevention measures. Drainage failure can happen due to multiple reasons –

  • Due to poor construction and ineffective sealing, water can seep inside the basement after any natural calamity
  • When the weeping weeping tile system in your home fails, it leads to basement flooding
  • In case the sump pump breaks down or malfunctions, water will accumulate in your basement
  • If your eavestroughs are broken or damaged, water runs down from the roof into the basement exterior walls and causes infrastructure vulnerabilities.

Some of the reasons for sewage backup include –

  • A clog is the most common reason for a sewage backup. Check after every flush or sink usage, whether there is any backup.
  • Sometimes tree roots can start growing inside the pipes blocking the flow or grow around the pipes, ultimately crushing them.
  • In older homes, pipes often get frozen and burst, or might be broken and damaged.
