Basement Flood – Prepare and Protect Your Home

December 23rd, 2014

A submerged basement can be one of the most costly damages to a home. Once the basement floods, everything that was stored in the room is ruined. Furniture, pictures, and other household items can be difficult to save or replace. The walls and interior will become moldy and need to be renovated. Our team of plumbing contractors at Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating, Inc. in Philadelphia perform a variety of home repairs and remodeling. We highly suggest preparing your home for future floods and taking preventative measures.

Flood Prevention

If your basement is damaged from a flood, don’t fret – we have a variety of repair services that can make your home new again. We can also help guard your home by eliminating the issues that may cause a flood, such as cleaning out your yard and roof drains.  We can also install a basement sump pump if you don’t have one yet. Hire us to clean out your gutters and construct a drainage system in your home, which prevents floods from happening in the basement.

Under the Circumstance

Floods can occur for a variety of reasons. The house may be located in an area with a sloped terrain or a nearby river, which can cause excess water to run over the land. Basements can also be flooded during a bad storm when the power goes out. Once the power is out, the sump pump won’t work and the water in the basement will have no escape. That’s when having a backup generator comes in handy. It is also a good idea to have flood insurance.

Whatever the emergency is, we at Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating, Inc. can come to the rescue. We also fix water main breaks, pipe bursts, sewage pumps, and gas water heaters in the Philadelphia area.

  • Small world, didn’t realize we knew so many of the same people! Thanks a lot for getting our drain clog fixed as my wife was really stuck and we needed it fixed right away. I have seen your trucks around for years and didn’t realize that you did drain cleaning too.

  • I am a volunteer with Aid for Friends, and my senior friend is a 90 year old amputee, whose heater broke. She was upset when she called PGW and they advised they could not do anything for her. I supplied her Guaranteed’s number. She was a little hesitant, but called. Your employee Brian was dispatched. […]
