Basement Flooding Clean Up

Wondering what to do if your basement floods? Roto-Rooter's water damage experts can help you understand the first steps in fixing your basement problems.

A flooded basement can happen at any time. Basement flooding can often be attributed to inadequate drainage around your basement walls, heavy storms, a faulty sump pump or appliance failure. Many basements have floor drains to keep the space from flooding with water and damaging the floor and walls. Dirt and debris often get caught in these drains, preventing water from draining out. Some homes also have sump pumps, which work to move water away from the house and into the nearest storm drain. If a sump pump fails and can’t move the water, you could experience flooding in your basement. After a basement flood, the most important thing to do is to remove the water immediately and dry out your basement completely.


Roto-Rooter’s plumbing experts are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, when you need service most, to quickly repair the problem (if applicable) and prevent further damage. Our trained professionals receive the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and perform water restoration services in compliance with standards for professional water damage and flood damage restoration.

Roto-Rooter’s vehicles are fully equipped with state-of-the art water extraction, drying and moisture testing equipment to handle everything including:



Call Your Electrician

If you do experience a basement flood and need it cleaned up, remember to put safety first. It is possible to begin the water removal process yourself, once you are sure that it’s safe to venture into the basement. A flooded basement can pose an electrical hazard to you and your family members, so one of the first calls you should make should be to your electrician, especially if you can’t access your circuit breaker. If your circuit breaker is not located in the basement, shut off power and gas immediately. Any electronics or electrical appliances in contact with the floodwater are unsafe. An electrician can help you assess whether it’s safe to enter the basement and begin the water removal process.
