April Showers...

A basement can flood at any time, but flooding often happens during heavy rainfall. And in our area we get plenty of rain during our spring storm season. Basements are prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a house and are built below ground level. Water runs from high to low ground and unfortunately straight into your basement. Excessive rain in a short period of time can saturate the earth around your basement and push through foundation cracks. THIS is when you call SERVPRO of Eastern Lake County. (219) 947-9931. We can answer any questions you have and get our highly trained technicians out to you right away! 

SERVPRO of Eastern Lake County proudly serves Hobart Indiana, Lake Station Indiana, Gary Indiana, Merrillville Indiana, Crown Point Indiana, and ALL surrounding areas
