Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Flooded basement due to sump pump failure

Most homes that have a basement also have a sump pump. The purpose of the sump pump is to remove water that is building up around the exterior of the basement before it seeps in and causes damage. 

This past storm event caused many Elgin and South Elgin homeowners to find out that their own homes were damaged due to excess water. 

A basement can have water damage even though water does not come out of the sump pump well.

After a heavy rain, excess water can enter the basement around the perimeter in areas that you would not necessarily check. Simply walking close to the walls in bare feet may show you that you did get water into your basement and that it will need to be properly addressed!
