Storm Preparations to Protect Against Flooding | Plumbing Services in Middle TN

Barrages of heavy rains, like those that have been hitting Middle Tennessee since last Monday, can hit communities hard enough to cause millions of dollars in damages! While our team is prepared to help restore our community in the event of such a disaster, they have been more focused on the increase of homeowners calling about flooding basements due to the storm.

There are precautions you can take to prepare your home for flooding from seasonal spring weather, let alone infiltration from storms like Hurricane Delta. Some of the most common problems that cause basement flooding during heavy rains are sump pumps that have malfunctioned or stopped working while not in use or do not have a battery backup system to depend on if there is a power outage. Another common problem lies in the water and ejection lines themselves. Calcium can build up over time, causing the inside of the pipes to become greatly restricted.

Storm traps need cleaning to be able to function properly during a storm, so don’t hesitate to ask your local plumber to have them checked out before the rainy season hits. Root growth can also negatively affect your pipes, blocking them a lot the same as calcium does, as well as eventually breaking them from the pressure created by their growth around or through them.

Flooding damage can cause you thousands of dollars in repairs once it is too late. The dangers of flooding in your basement can be great enough to cause serious injury or even death. Taking the measures to prepare your plumbing ahead of time is a serious investment to consider for the safety of your family and the wellbeing of your home.

If your area is prone to heavy rains during the spring season, or in the line of migrating tropical weather patterns, give us a call at Jack Ward & Sons Plumbing Co. today at (615) 227-2811.
