Keep Sewer and Drains Clear to Prevent Potential Flooding

With Hurricane Sandy hitting the east coast this week, we wanted to remind everyone in the San Diego area to keep their sewer and drains clear to prevent potential flooding.

As we know, Southern California often gets periods of heavy rain and My Plumber San Diego receives numerous calls in regards to flooded homes, businesses and sump pumps not working. Based on our 30 years of experience and best plumber service we wanted to remind you of several reasons why basements and first floors flood.  Water can enter into your home or office via: leaks or cracks in walls, clogged main drains, foundation drain failure, leaking or clogged downspouts, sump pump failure, a sewer system clog or back-up, or poor lot drainage. Most of these occur as a result of heavy or persistent rainfall.

Besides the time and expense associated with a large clean-up bill, there are other negative consequences associated with flooding:

  • Consistent flooding resulting in long-term damage to your home or office may not be covered by insurance.
  • Mold and mildew growth may occur resulting in serious health problems.
  • Homeowner insurance rates or deductibles may rise to compensate for repeated flooding claims.

We hope your home or office never has s flood, but if it does, give My Plumber Heating and Cooling of San Diego a call.
