It's a familiar scenario for Michigan homeowners: There is a pouring rainstorm, and the sump pump fails. Before you know it, the basement starts to fill with water. What should you do when your basement gets flooded? Stay safe and call in the professionals.
Any flooding can turn a basement into an electrocution hazard—even if the flood is only an inch high. The problem becomes even bigger if the basement is deeply flooded; this is when things can turn deadly. Once the flood reaches the height of the outlets, there is a profound electrocution risk. You should never go into your basement until it is drained.
The safest thing to do is to call flooded basement specialists to come to your home in Michigan. They will pump the water out of your basement quickly, safely, and efficiently.
They will likely disconnect your home from the electrical grid completely—a process that requires the skill of trailed electricians and utility employees. If your house has gas service and gas appliances in the basement have been flooded, they will also disable the gas meter outside.
