One of our recent projects was a flood in a local home. The SERVPRO of Norwood West Roxbury crews quickly restored their home.

A flooded basement can occur anytime, especially from weather related events such as heavy rainfall or rapid snowmelt to older homes. 

Below are other causes of basement flooding:

  • Foundation cracks
  • Broken basement windows
  • Poor-draining window wells
  • Sewer system problems
  • Sump pump problems
  • Improperly sealed basement walls
  • House located at the bottom of a slope
  • Weeping tile blockage
  • Overflowing rain gutters
  • Improper downspout locations
  • Appliance leaks
  • Overflowing toilet or bathtub
