Whenever you notice basement flooding in your home, you need to get in touch with our team immediately. It's important to understand that you shouldn't attempt to go into the floodwater. You don't know what could be in the water. Also, if electricity to your home is not turned off, you risk getting electrocuted if you come in contact with the water and there is wiring in your basement. It's a smart idea to let our professionals come to your home to evaluate the situation and get the water cleaned up.
Often times, a flooded basement is caused from a broken seal on a cove joint. This is the area where the wall and floor meet. When it rains, or when there is a lot of melting snow on the lawn seeping moisture into the soil, this can cause the water table around the foundation to rise. When this happens, it pushes a lot of moisture through the cove joint and into the basement environment. Additionally, basement flooding could be caused from a clogged floor drain in the home, or from some type of plumbing problem. We can provide you with all the solutions you need for basement flooding in Nebraska and surrounding areas.

We offer durable sump pumps that can push water out and away from your home. A sump pump is installed in a pit in the lowest lying area of the basement. Drainage systems inside the basement are directed into the pump pit. Water is collected from the walls and floors, and once a certain level is reached inside of the basin, moisture is pushed out and away from the home. We can also install battery back up systems that will be activated in case the primary pump fails, or if the power goes out.
This kind of waterproofing involves the use of interior drainage systems. They can be installed along the perimeter of the basement to collect water from under and on top of the floor, along the walls, and from the cove joint. Water from the drain system is channeled into the sump pump. Along with this waterproofing system, we can also install dehumidifiers to help with humidity control under your home.
This type of waterproofing involves the use of waterproofing products and systems outside of the home. We can install an exterior waterproofing membrane on the outside of your foundation. This will stop water from getting into your basement through the foundation walls. We can also take care of yard drainage and grading problems which may be causing water to pool up next to the base of your home.
