Your Basement Flooded — What Now?

Flooded basements are both stressful and expensive and, much of the time, seem to come out of nowhere. That said, if you’ve noticed that your basement is flooding, don’t panic—there are just a few key steps you’ll need to take. First, confirm that the basement is safe to enter. Make sure to turn off the electricity and gas before heading down and be wary of any electrical wires or water damage to the ceiling. Sometimes, it won’t be safe to enter until the water has been drained completely. After that, you can find the source of the flood and remove or drain the water. Ask us about how you can begin repairing and renovating your basement after a flood.

What are the limitations
on an inspection?

A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
