Basement Flooding

Avoid the Damage of a Flooded Basement

You Can Prevent Basement Flooding

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 basement waterproofing company, Mission Home Services 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. Even a small leak can become a basement flood that leads to extensive damage to finishing materials and stored items.

Our trained experts have the solution for you. Call us today at 1-844-387-2656 or click below to learn more about how we can help you solve your basement flooding problems. We offer free estimates on all our services in Walkersville, Frederick, Westminster and the nearby areas.


Common Basement Flooding Problems

Basements can flood from a number of areas, including: wall cracks, floor cracks, leaking or burst pipes, leaking windows, hatchway doors, sump pump failure, and water heater failure.

 

Prevent flooding through basement stairways and hatchway doors

Hatchway entrances leak from three critical points: underneath metal hatchway doors, where the hatchway and foundation meet, and through cracks in the concrete.

No matter how water is flooding into your home from the hatchway doors, our TrenchDrain™ Hatchway Door System is a great way to keep it out of your basement space. The TrenchDrain™ is designed with a half-round pipe section, with a grated top fitting. When installed, it’s flush with the rest of your concrete floor for a clean, professional job.

The TrenchDrain™ is meant to be used as part of an existing perimeter drain system. It spans the staircase, collecting water that spills down and directs it to your drain and sump pump system. This system can span the entrance of the hatchway, or can be extended inside the hatchway itself.

 

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 Mission Home Services, we offer industrial 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.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”

“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”

Gail B. | ★★★★★

“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
