Heavy Rains Causing Flooding In Lancaster County

Tendrils of water stretch along a basement floor Flooding in a Lancaster county basement

Many Lancaster County residents, myself included, found themselves side-stepping long tendrils of water rolling into their homes and basements throughout the night due to the crazy amount of rain we got. With a flood watch still in effect that number is sure to continue rising in the upcoming days.

If you are experiencing some flooding or expect you might it is best to get anything you consider important up off of the floor. Small amounts pf water can easily be mopped up and kept an eye on over the next couple of days while the rain water recedes into the ground.

For water damage and worse flooding issues give SERVPRO of Adamstown/Mohnton a call at (717) 484-0007. We are available 24/7, 365 to handle all of your water damage mitigation and commercial or residential restoration service needs.

Part of a water damaged bathroom is shown with leaking around a toilet flange. Water is being dried up using green fans. SERVPRO equipment drying water damage caused by leaking toilet flange.

Recently we responded to a call in Mohnton over concerns of a leaking toilet. In this particular case the upstairs toilet had leaked to the connecting first floor bathroom damaging the second floor bathroom, the first floor ceiling, and the first floor bathroom. 

Leaking toilets can cause major water damage and mold growth especially when they are on upper floors of a residential or commercial property. Water can leak straight through the floor or it can travel to other parts of the residence and along plumbing.

Sometimes the wax ring or toilet flange can disintegrate with age. If you have an older toilet or are seeing signs of toilet leaks like wet floors and stained ceilings give SERVPRO of Adamstown/Mohnton a call at (717) 484-0007. We are available 24/7 to make it "Like it never even happened."

Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Adamstown, Mohnton basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
