Water Damage Plainfield and Naperville South Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration! Photo Caption: This DuPage County home’s basement was damaged by a water leak.

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Plainfield/Naperville South basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
