Heavy Rain Causes Flooding in Glen Daniel?

6/13/2023 (Permalink)

Water seeps through the walls of a basement. We are leaders in storm damage restoration services in Raleigh County.

If you live in Glen Daniel, West Virginia, you are no stranger to summer storms. Between June and August, residents may experience anything from frequent thunderstorms to heavy rain, and even occasional flash flooding. Our local Beckley team is on hand 24 hours a  day, 365 days a year to respond to storm damage emergencies. Here are some tips for preventing basement seepage and flooding from the Insurance Information Institute:

  • Reseal your basement. Water in the basement is often caused by cracks in building foundations or floor slabs. If you notice water seepage after heavy rain when you’ve never had a problem, it may mean that your once-waterproof cement floors and basement walls have deteriorated. Painting vulnerable areas with water sealant can prevent seepage.
  • Make sure water drains away from the building. Seepage is exacerbated by soil that has settled in a way to make water flow toward the building. After a storm, and especially if the ground is already saturated, rainwater that flows towards the building goes down the outside of the foundation wall, potentially through any cracks.
  • Install a backwater valve. Though less common than other causes of basement water, sewer backups are messy. Learn more about your sewer responsibilities and install and maintain a backwater valve, which allows sewage to go out, but not come back in.
