This is the most common and obvious damage that occurs in a flooded basement. The water can seep into walls, flooring, and furniture causing extensive damage. If left untreated, it can lead to mold growth which can be dangerous for your health.
When water enters your basement, it can come into contact with electrical components such as outlets, wires, and appliances. This can result in short circuits, power outages, and even electrical fires. It is important to shut off the electricity to your basement immediately if it has been flooded.
