What are the Risks of Basement Flooding in London?
When your basement floods, it isn’t just a short-term problem. In most cases, it is indicative of a serious drainage issue which needs to be rectified as quickly as possible. Blocked drains, collapsed drains and cracked pipes can all contribute towards flooded properties across the UK.
Flooded properties are vulnerable to all kinds of damage. Water can cause long-term, often irreparable damage, to a property’s foundations. It can also cause the growth of mould and rising damp across your property. These issues can ruin your home or business’ structural integrity. They can also be extremely expensive to repair.
In addition to the long-term structural issues, basement flooding can also cause cosmetic damage. Water damage can ruin furniture and anything you’ve chose to store in your basement. This can include irreplaceable mementos, family photographs and more. As such, a flooded basement needs to be resolved as quickly as possible. It is also important that the cause of the flood is identified. Total Home Solutions can work with you to ensure that your property does not flood again.

What are the Causes of Basement Flooding in London and Hertfordshire?
There are many potential causes of a basement flooding in London and across the South East. Being able to identify, and resolve, the cause of your flooding is extremely important. Failing to do so will simply cause your basement or property to flood again in the near future.
Just some of the most common causes of basement flooding include:
- Collapsed Drains.
- Cracked Drains.
- Loose Pipe Connections.
- Blocked Drains, Due to:
- FOG Waste Build-Up (Fats, Oils, Greases).
- Unsuitable Waste Disposal.
- Vermin Infestation.
- Recent Rainfall.
- Waterlogged Soil and Vulnerable Exterior Walls.
In addition to clearing basements of all kinds of flood water, we can effectively eliminate flooding across your property. In many cases, this will involve the installation of drainage systems, soakaways or other features which will direct the water away from your property. The presence of these solutions will cause the floodwater to move below the surface, where it can be absorbed by soil which isn’t waterlogged already.
These solutions are also essential when it comes to the clearance of floodwater from harder surfaces, such as concrete and driveways.
