Why Basements flood in Dearborn
Basements are more likely to flood from a heavy rain or quick melting snow than anything else. Because basements in Dearborn occupy the lowest part of a home or business they will be the first areas to flood during these conditions.
The roof on a medium sized home will have more than 1,000 gallons go through the gutters with just 1 inch of rainfall.
Sump Pump Cleanup in Dearborn
Ground water is a type of intrusion that is alive with millions of microorganisms and capable of producing mold in as little as 48 hours. Unfortunately the system that is installed in many basements to keep basements from flooding is a sump pump.
Reasons Sump Pumps Fail:
- Power failures
- Frozen and stuck floats
- More water than pump can handle
- Broken or clogged pipe
- Old age
- Product defect
- Bad check valve
- Faulty installation
Homes that regularly fertilize their lawn will have the addition of harmful chemicals in the water table that will be present in the flood water when pumps fail. Fertilizers are harmful and companies by law must place a warning sign on lawns to warn of the dangers. We have a drying system that will remove these volatile organic compounds from the air.

We adhere to IICRC Standards on ground water intrusion and place human safety and indoor air quality as a top priority during flooded basement cleanup in Dearborn. The first step after water removal is our use of all natural anti-microbial agents to remove molds and microorganisms.
