Don’t Enter The Water

Even if you think it is safe to enter the basement, we strongly advise homeowners to never enter any flooded water. There may be dangerous or sharp objects below the surface that you may not be able to see. It is also important to shut off all power to your home until the professionals arrive to inspect the condition of your basement and home.

“The day after Hurricane Irene, all of my neighbors basements were filled with water, while mine remained dry! It is wonderful, everything remains dry and the battery backup worked beautifully when my power was out for 2 days. Dry AND quiet, thank you, thank you! Thanks! Debbie, Berwyn”

“All I have to say is that Hurricane Irene was no match for the job that Rightway did for my basement and my father-in-law’s. I had my basement done 5 years ago and we are still bone dry and my father-inlaw’s was done last year and another dry basement… Great job! I highly recommend them for waterproofing and mold remediation.”
