What Causes Basement Flooding?
Basements can flood for many reasons, both natural and man-made. Some of the most common causes include:
- Heavy storms
- Improper grading around the foundation
- Poor drainage
- Foundation cracks or leaks
- Sewer backups
- Plumbing leaks
- Sump pump failures
At RestoreUnow, we can not only clean up after a basement floods, but we can recommend strategies that will help prevent floods in the future, such as sealing foundation walls or installing a sump pump and perimeter drain.

Water Inspection & Assessment
Our team will inspect your Baltimore home using tools like thermal imaging and moisture meters to determine the extent of the water infiltration and plan an appropriate course of action. We have many viable options depending on the cause of the flooding and the magnitude of the damage.
Any remaining water will be removed quickly to prevent further water damage and reduce the chances of mold growth. We have high-volume pumps, wet vacuums, and other equipment that can remove large amounts of standing water as fast as possible.
Flood water can carry a wide range of pathogens, from bacteria and viruses to mold spores. Our experts will determine the cause and nature of the flood to identify which decontamination methods are necessary. We will rinse all flooded areas with 200-degree water to kill any microbes on contact, and when necessary, we will apply antimicrobial solutions to thoroughly decontaminate hard-to-clean areas or materials. Our team will inform you beforehand to ensure the safety of your family members, pets, and other building occupants.
Once all standing water has been removed, we will continue to reduce moisture levels with equipment like negative air machines, fans, dehumidifiers, and desiccants. We will verify the progress with moisture meters and document the process to ensure successful results.
Should any mold start forming, our team has the equipment and experience to remove it safely. Our mold remediation services are an effective way to clean your home and improve indoor air quality after mold contamination occurs.
