The Dangers of Basement Flooding and Sewage Backups

One of the highest risks for your home is to fall victim to basement flooding or sewage backup. Stormwater drains are connected to street lines and are made to manage a certain amount of rainfall. In periods of persistent rain, the drains become overwhelmed with excessive amounts of water, causing them to force sewage back into homes. This not only produces an unsightly health hazard, but can damage your furnace, water heaters, washing machines, and more beyond repair. Service1 can help you avoid this disastrous aftermath with the right flood control system.

What is a Flood Control System?

A proper flood control system prevents basement flooding and sewage backup. Serivce1 will start by building a small pit in your backyard and installing a water control valve. The valve will activate when sewage moves towards your house and trigger a mechanism to stop it from entering your basement. It’s also very important to select the correct valve for the system to work, so Service1 will help you pick the right one for a seamless transition to your new or updated system.
