Steps to Take for Your Flooded Basement

Tips and tools to take on your flood fiasco.

By Mike Hall, Broker/Agent/Owner


The first step to clearing a flooded basement is to get rid of the water.

With all the rain Louisville has had lately, more and more homeowners are struggling with flooded basements. You should always consult a professional and your homeowner’s insurance agency, but here are some tips and suggestions for you to think through as you respond to this major experience.

  • Wear protective gear, especially boots, a mask and gloves.
  • If you have a floor drain, make sure it’s clear.
  • Start removing water. You could use a sump pump, pool pump, wet vacuum or an old-fashioned mop. Soak up the last of it with towels or sponges.
  • Move damaged items into an area where they can thoroughly dry for at least 48 hours. You might need to discard things that are still wet after that time.
  • Don’t touch electrical things, even if the power is turned off. Let them dry in place, then have a professional handle them.
  • Get carpeting and padding up as soon as possible. Wet carpet is a magnet for mold and mildew.
  • Let the basement dry a few days.
  • Wash down walls...
