Top Causes of Basement Flooding in Toronto

Water intrusions can occur in basements from sources inside and outside the structure. A flooded basement in your home could be caused by a sewer backup, burst or leaking pipe, leaking or broken hot water tank, broken washing machine or burst water line, broken or overworked sump pump, or heavy rainfall or melting snow seeping through foundation​ walls. We offer emergency plumber and waterproofing services to help you stop the cause of water damage before beginning with repairs to your basement.

Stormwater or groundwater can seep into your basement due to:

  • A crack or leak in your foundation wall, basement walls, or basement windows or door.

  • Poor lot grading, landscaping or drainage issues.

  • Failure or collapse of the weeping tile system (foundation drains).

  • Failure of a sump pump (if you have one) used to pump out groundwater.

  • Leaking or plugged downspouts, or problems with eavestroughs.


A sewer backup can be caused by blockages, a collapsed pipe or an overwhelmed sewer system:

  • Blockages are typically caused by items that are incorrectly flushed or poured down the drain. Tree roots and broken or cracked sewer pipes can also cause blockages.

  • Overwhelmed sewer pipes can happen during extreme rain. If the sewers fill beyond capacity, the water will travel backward in the sewer pipe and into the home.

  • Install a backwater valve to prevent sewer water from backing up sewage in your basement. Learn more about backwater valves and subsidies at the City of Toronto website.

In the case of major weather events resulting in catastrophic floods and storm damage, it is important to properly evaluate the extent of basement flood damage so that materials can be cleaned and dried to avoid indoor mould growth and secondary property damages can be prevented.


The Basement Flood Cleanup & Restoration Process

A flooded basement emergency can happen at any time. Basement flooding can often be attributed to poor drainage or compaction around your basement walls, heavy rain, a faulty sump pump or appliance failure. Many basements have drains to keep the space from flooding and allow excess water to leave your home. Dirt, debris and tree roots can cause blockages in these drains, preventing the water from draining out. Some homes also have sump pumps, which work to keep groundwater away from the house and into the nearest storm drain. If a sump pump is broken or becomes overwhelmed and can’t remove water, you could experience a backup in your basement. After discovering a flooded basement, the most important thing to do is to clean up the water immediately and dry out your basement completely.

Step 1: Water Removal & Extraction

Time matters when you have a flooded basement. We will quickly extract the water before it can absorb any further into your home, minimizing secondary damages. Submersible pumps, portable water extraction units and waterclaw flood extractors are used for fast and efficient water removal.

Step 2: Cleaning & Sanitization

Once the water has been removed, we will clean, sanitize and treat the area with a plant-based antimicrobial agent to make sure that mould does not form. 

Step 3: Drying

It is imperative that water damaged areas are dried thoroughly. Excessive moisture content or high humidity resulting from water damage can lead to mould growth. We will bring in dehumidifiers and large fans for 3-5 days that work to remove any moisture by circulating dry air throughout the damaged areas.

Step 4: Water Damage Repair

To return your basement to pre-loss condition, repairs and reconstruction services may be required. The water damage repair and restoration process will begin after all water-damaged materials are removed and the affected area has been thoroughly dried. Clean and dry materials will replace what was previously damaged by water.
