Storm Sewer Water in Edmonds Home
Unexpected water in your basement can damage walls and floors, destroy carpeting, ruin furniture, and lead to mold relatively quickly.
In many older houses with basements there is a perimeter foundation drain outside the exterior wall, at the level of the basement floor, next to the footings at the time the house was built. A pipe was usually installed from the perimeter foundation drain to the street where it was connected to the city storm sewer system. This can become a problem as the city storm sewer system becomes too small when more development causes more rain runoff. When this happens, the rainwater in the sewer system can get so high that water flows back in to the house.
Our SERVPRO of Edmonds team responded quickly to this storm backup and the customers were very thankful for their hard work.
