The Costs Of Recovering From A Basement Flood
We all know that a basement flood costs quite a bit of time, energy, and peace of mind, but many don’t realize the financial costs of a flooded basement until it’s too late. While waterproofing services may seem financially intimidating at first, they’re nothing like the sort of costs that one would incur if their basement begins to flood, especially when considering a basement flood is rarely a one-time occurrence if no steps are taken for prevention.
If a basement is flooded with just an inch or two of clean water, the cost to fix the damage can be anywhere from $500 to $1500 depending on the size of the space and what property may have come into contact with the moisture, and if a basement gets this type of water accumulation once, it will most likely get it again. If the water is dirty or more than an inch or two is accumulating, the cost of the cleanup will jump steeply to anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 or more, and you could be looking at a serious investment in order to save your home.
The best way to avoid incurring these costs over and over again is through basement waterproofing, as this can keep the inside of your home dry and safe as it should be. With basement waterproofing, your individual leak or flooding problem is taken into consideration to ensure your basement will remain a livable space, and water can be kept out once and for all. The cost of basement waterproofing pales in comparison to the cost of cleaning up after a flood over and over again, so the service really pays for itself when even small leaks are avoided.
