The Dangers Of Basement Flooding
Basement flooding is more damaging than it may originally seem, which is why immediate attention is so crucial.
In addition to the risks of mold and mildew growth, as well as moisture damage to your ceiling, drywall, flooring furniture, and more, pests such as termites are also drawn to moist environments. This can weaken your floorboards and the structural integrity of your home even more. The problems resulting from basement flooding don’t always manifest immediately. Royal Restoration can minimize the dangers of basement flooding when you contact us to come out and clean the flooding up the instant you begin to suspect or notice it.
Some of the dangers that can result from basement flooding include:
- Mold and mildew
- Water damage
- Health hazards
- Electrical hazards
- Damage to appliances and furniture
- Compromised structural integrity
Causes Of Basement Flooding
Here in Utah, there are many potential causes for basement flooding. Some of the common causes of basement flooding that we’ve diagnosed on our jobs are as follows:
- Plumbing or sewer problems
- Excessive rain and/or melted snow
- Rising groundwater levels
- Broken appliances
- Cracks in your home’s foundation
- The grade of your property
Some of these don’t cause basement floods instantly, but rather, create the opportunity for future flooding. For instance, if your basement windows aren’t protected by window wells, this can invite water into your basement. A leak can worsen over time. If your gutters are pointed towards your home, then they’re directing water towards your home’s foundation. If water is pooling and running towards your home after a storm, then your property isn’t graded properly and an expert can help level it, so it directs water away from your home, rather than towards it.
Part of our flood services include diagnosing the cause of the flood. Once you know why your basement flooded, you can take appropriate action to prevent it from flooding again in the future.Call Now! 801-784-4504

What Our Clients Say...
The team was vey professional, knowledgeable and courteous. Great service all the way around.
At a time of full panic mode and very late at night, Royal arrived and took over. They knew what needed done and their staff were great. Before they left I felt better about the situation. Thank you very much!
Highly recommend Royal Restoration. Michael and his team helped us out in a pinch and were very prompt and professional with clear communication to help put our minds at ease. They did exactly what they said they were going to do and when they said they were going to do it. They provided top notch service and quality work and were a joy to work with; even in a not so joyous event with a flood at our house.
Came home from a trip to 4” standing water in basement. Royal came ASAP and worked through the night to get the water up. Juan was awesome to work, Spencer and Derek worked extremely hard and were very professional for the days after in getting all of the water up/dried and everything removed.
We loved working with Royal Restoration! They were extremely knowledgeable with what we needed and how to deal with our insurance. Very prompt and most importantly, very clean! I could not recommend them enough!
We had quite the debacle with our home warranty company, but Royal Restoration went above and beyond (which I recognize they didn't have to). We had absolutely no issue with the work that was done by them. The company was prompt, friendly and did the job as needed. I know you never want to need a restoration company, but when the time comes we need one again, we will be using Royal Restoration. And in the meantime, we will refer them to our neighbors and friends.
Due to a sprinkler leak in our backyard, water flowed into our basement through a window well and totally flooded our family room, bedroom, and game room! We called Royal and a representative was there within an hour to assess the damage. Dallan contacted our insurance company, got a case number and had a crew here shortly after. Spencer, Preston, and Derek quickly removed the damaged carpet pad and set up equipment in all three rooms and saved our carpeting. Royal representatives kept in close contact with us throughout the entire five day process. We are so grateful and appreciative of this great restoration company!
So grateful for the work this company did. After Ida our house was drenched and mold was growing everywhere. In less then 2 days my house was gutted to the studs. Mold treatment and water mitigation followed and a week later we are ready to rebuild.
[Royal Restoration] came by after the recent rainstorm that flooded the basement. Because our basement doesn’t have a carpet pad we were mostly just worried about mold in the walls. Chris gave advice on how we could do things ourselves and if not was very upfront with his price and next steps. They are very honest and show they want what’s best for their customers. Would recommend for anyone to contact them for a consult.
What To Do When Your Basement Floods
Once a flood hits, it’s imperative that you contact a flood damage repair professional, such as Royal Restoration, immediately. While we’re on our way out to you, no matter what time of day or night that is, there are some things you can do while waiting for us to get there in order to lessen damage and prevent potentially catastrophic problems.
You’ll want to turn off your utilities, especially your electricity and gas. If you’re not sure how, contact an electrician right away. You can also open windows and doors to get air moving. You don’t want to enter your basement while there’s the possibility of electrical hazards or if you don’t know what caused the flooding. The water could be unsafe and require protective equipment, especially if it comes from your sewage or from your appliances.
Royal Restoration will arrive quickly and get right to work. Our team of experts is trained and equipped to handle basement flooding any time of day, any time of the year. We’ll remove the excess water, clean up the area, and then dry it and apply protective coatings in order to stave off future damages. Every basement flooding situation is unique, and we adjust our tactics accordingly in order to help restore your property.
