Fresno Residents with Basements

A basement flood can happen at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

Here are a few reasons why your Fresno basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Winter challenges for water restoration

Water Damage Winter challenges for water restoration Beautiful Shaver Lake California

We have had a wonderful wet winter that has given the central valley some much needed water and snow. Unfortunately for some this has caused some damage to their homes due to water intrusion from roof leaks or ground water finding its way inside. In some cases, we have had to fight the snow just to get access to the home. In any case we are always ready and able to help! We have a dedicated four-wheel drive with snow chains just for situations like this. We also have alternate forms of communication for remote areas to stay in touch with our clients when we are needed. For this unique loss we were able to supply supplemental heating to the home to help facilitate drying of the wet materials.
