What Causes Domestic and Commercial Flooding?

Flooding is often caused by burst or leaky pipes on the property. This can be for pipes carrying water to and from the property. Flash floods can also occur from heavy rainfall, which most insurance plans cover.

Blockages can occur in sewage pipes, gutters, and drains which leads to water building up and pipes bursting. Then floodwater can gather and flood an area. This is when you’ll need a flood pump out, to get rid of the water.

Coastal Living and River Overflows

Coastal living can also incur floods. During storms, excessive rainwater and rising sea levels can damage properties. Being on the South Coast, we’ve weathered many storms and helped customers endure many property floods.

If you live near a river or stream, there’s also a high chance you might need to deal with these overflowing. If that’s the case, just give us a call to carry out our flood pumping service.
