Flooded Basement? Find Basement Flooding Solutions Near Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Edmond
What causes basement flooding and how to prevent it
If your basement flooded once, it can happen again. Fortunately, there's a lot you can do to prevent a flooded basement. That's where we come in. As a leading Oklahoma City basement waterproofing company, Vesta Foundation Solutions offers basement flood prevention and waterproofing solutions that will ensure that your basement stays dry.
There are few things that can cause more damage to a home than a full-scale basement flood, especially if you have a finished basement. Plumbing failures and severe weather are the most common causes of flooding, which is why it's essential to be prepared.
Preventing flooding from plumbing failures
When your home experiences a plumbing failure, it can damage carpet, drywall, appliances, and stored personal possessions. The mold that follows a flood can create allergens that can lead to serious long-term health effects.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to prevent all pipes, toilets, sinks, tubs, faucets, and other pieces of home plumbing from ever experiencing a leak. However, there are some simple, effective solutions for the most common plumbing failures that occur.
At Vesta Foundation Solutions, our Oklahoma City basement waterproofing company offers industrial-grade FloodCheck® Hoses to replace old washer hoses that are at risk of bursting open from constant water pressure. We also provide sump pump alarm systems that alert you when a flood occurs, as well as our FloodRingTM Water Heater Flood Protection System to protect your home from water heater floods. The FloodRing® system includes a 4" PVC ring that's designed to collect water from your water heater, where it is then directed to your perimeter drain.
Combine the FloodRing™ with our WaterWatch® Alarm, which is placed inside of the ring for added protection. Like our sump pump alarm, it will sound off if it detects water, and can also be hooked up to some home alarm systems.
