COMMON PROBLEMS REQUIRING FLOODED BASEMENT REPAIR IN INDIANAPOLIS, IN
Dealing with a flooded basement is no easy task. Find out what issues your basement might be susceptible to if a basement flood is the cause of your problems.
Heavy rainfall or melting snow can cause basement leaks and flooding which result in weakness in the ground beneath your foundation. Foundation sinking, bowing basement walls, and other structural damage can occur as the supporting ground softens. In the process, your’re left with an ideal environment for the growth of mold and mildew.
Humidity in the soil and air releases destructive water vapor, debris, contaminates, and pollen. This damp air carries mold spores and musty odors, providing the perfect environment for insects and other pests, as well as wood rot. These issues affect your home’s structure and the quality of air in your living spaces.
All soil can expand and contract after a heavy rain or drought. When the soil supporting your foundation changes, it can cause your home to shift. During wet weather, water saturates surrounding soil, causing it to swell and push against subterranean walls. This lateral pressure can make basement walls bulge or leak, causing a wet and smelly basement.

HOW DO I FIX IT?
Acculevel helps with flooded basement repairs in Indianapolis, IN, in a variety of ways to prevent water intrusion and damage. Our systems effectively redirect water away from your flooded basement using sturdy tracks, channels, and sump pumps.
Redirection With Water Tunneling
Basement flooding repair can often start with water tunneling. The water tunnel is a channel system used to relieve hydrostatic pressure build-up surrounding a structure’s foundation.
Holes on both sides of the tunnel allow water to be collected from the footing/wall joints and under the floor. The unique bottomless design allows water to flow away from your basement at a flow rate of 140 gallons per minute.
Water Removal with Sump Pump
All Acculevel basement waterproofing systems drain into a top-of-the-line sump pump system and include safeguards against power outages and pump failures. It is essential to have a second battery-operated pump in the sump liner in case of mechanical or power failure. Acculevel battery backups are dependable and flexible.
