What to Do When Your Basement Floods

Here are some initial steps you can take while waiting for Rightway Waterproofing to arrive:

  • Safety First: Turn off the electricity in your basement to prevent electrical shock hazards. If you suspect a gas leak, evacuate the house immediately and call the gas company.
  • Stop the Water Source: If possible, identify the source of the water and try to stop it. This might involve shutting off the main water supply to your house.
  • Remove Standing Water: If it is safe to do so, use a wet/dry vac or mop to remove as much standing water as possible. The sooner you can remove the water, the less time it has to cause damage.
  • Protect Your Belongings: Move furniture and valuables to higher ground to prevent water damage.
  • Document the Damage: Take photos and videos of the flooding and any damage it causes. This will be helpful for insurance purposes.

Once you’ve taken these initial steps, call Rightway Waterproofing right away. Our emergency response team will be there quickly to assess the situation and develop a plan to clean up your basement and prevent further issues. Here’s what you can expect from our services:

  • Water Extraction: We use high-powered pumps and industrial-strength vacuums to remove all standing water from your basement.
  • Dehumidification: To prevent mold growth, we’ll use powerful dehumidifiers to extract moisture from the air and drying equipment to accelerate the drying process. Our goal is to ensure your basement reaches its pre-flood moisture levels.
  • Content Drying and Restoration: Our team will work to recover any salvageable belongings. This might include cleaning and drying furniture, carpets, and other items affected by the floodwater.
  • Mold Remediation: If mold growth is present due to the flooding, our certified mold remediation specialists will safely remove the mold and prevent it from returning.

“We wanted to thank you for your personal and specialized attention to the water problem we had in our basement. You took the time to inspect the whole situation and gave us recommendations, all of which worked. You had a way of explaining the process and materials that would be used in a way that we understood. We are very pleased with the work that was done and would highly recommend your company to anyone.”

Debbie, Berwyn

“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”

-Debbie, Berwyn

Doug Smith, Glenside

“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.”

-Doug Smith, Glenside


“I’d highly recommend these guys for your basement. My basement has been dry since they installed a sump pump and French drain in June. They offer a competitive price, they get the job done quickly and they stand by their work. Please mention my name if you proceed down the road with these guys.”


Angelo and Sandra Patiri

“We had our basement waterproofed with Rightway Waterproofing in 2007, after all this time and just getting through Hurricane Irene, we did not get a drop of water in our basement. Rightway Waterproofing did a very good job and we are very satisfied!”

-Angelo and Sandra Patiri
