Who Do I Call when Water is Leaking into My House from Outside?

Unlike a plumbing leak inside your home, which would require that you call an emergency plumber out to stop the leak, water entering your home from the outside is likely due to other causes. Heavy rain, a leaking pool, a foundation crack, or an improperly graded yard can all cause water to build up against your home and come in through windows or doors or through your foundation.

When this happens, you will need to address the problem that’s allowing water to build up (like installing weeping tiles or repairing your foundation). But in the meantime, you will need to get the water pumped out. A water cleanup company can come out and remove the water from your basement or main level. A water pump out service will include not only water removal using professional wet vacs but also dry out procedures. Once the water is removed damaged or destroyed furniture and other homes goods will be removed and then industrial-sized fans will be used to dry out surfaces and home materials. While some things like carpets may be able to be saved, other things like drywall will likely need to be replaced.
