Hey Yall

OK so I just got home from Netherworld, and walked in the door to a strange odor coming outta the house. I walked downstairs where all my stuff is and my basement is flooded with 5 inches of water. What do I do to get it all cleaned up. Someone Help please

That deep start with a sump pump, then get a wet dry Vac, then get those blowers and a dehumdifier.

Mine flooded 3 times before I could even get a company out to look at it.

Nasty stuff...

Good luck getting your basement un-flooded D;

Installing a diving board and paying a lifeguard, stay with the sump pump, cheaper in the long run.
The wine cellar here is over 22 feet below ground and catches alot of water. This spring I poured a concrete sloping "cap" on the ground above part of it and it has seemed to help stop many extra gallons from showing up down there.

Make sure and take extensive photos for your insurance company.
This is very important.
I hope your basement is unfinished. Any drywall, carpet, paneling etc... will all have to be torn out if it got wet.

Wouldn't Granny's Depends take care up the problem...?
