Storm Damage, Winter Temperatures, and Flood Damage causing Basements to Flood
Storm Damage and heavy rainfall causes many basements to flood in Fishers Indiana. When the rainfall reaches 2 inches in an hour many sump pumps cannot keep up and the water is forced into the basement. Also, when heavy storms bring strong winds, the power lines can be damaged, and the sump pump power can be cut off. When this happens, the water around the basement foundation walls has nowhere to go but into the basement.
Winter temperatures can be hard on water pipes near basements. Many times, water supply lines for kitchen sinks or outside water spigots, will be installed near an exterior wall or window. If the temperature drops below freezing, these pipes can burst from becoming frozen. Once the frozen pipes burst, the water has nowhere to go except into the basement.
