Basements are the most common area of your home to be flooded. Whether it’s from heavy rainfall, a roof drainage problem or a sump pump malfunction, water seems to always find its way into basements. One of the most common causes of basement flooding in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. homes and businesses is sump pump failures due to power outages after storms.
It’s always a good idea to have a battery backup and an alarm system installed. Compared to the costs and headaches associated with having to deal with flood damage cleanup and restoration, it’s a no-brainer. However, if you find your basement flooded, Flood Doctor technicians are trained, certified and ready to get water out of your basement, clean and preserve your possessions, and mitigate and restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Rain, rain, go away. And sewage backups. And burst pipes. All y’all can GO. AWAY. Especially if they turn your wet bar into a soaking wet bar and your ping-pong table into an island.
Every homeowner with a basement imagines that horror. If it should happen to you, don’t retreat into a fetal position on your couch and hope for a miracle, no matter how much you want to. You can deal with the soggy disaster. Here’s how.
Once the water is pumped out, the rest can be a DIY job. Just make sure to protect yourself with:
As long as the company you hire is trustworthy and affordable. A small flood might cost as little as $500 to pump out and dry, but a large flood can cost up to $10,000.
So just be sure to do your homework on who you hire.

Flood Doctor saved my apartment in Falls Church a couple years ago after the unit above the 10th floor flooded. Their service was prompt and efficient, keeping the damage to the bathroom and hallway minimal. I didn't have to deal with multiple contractors. They literally handled all aspects.
