Raining Indoors

Raining Indoors

During a New Jersey cold snap a pipe in this house burst while the homeowner was away and water ran for several days before being shut off. By the time we were called in the weather had warmed up. When we arrived the humidity inside the house was so high that these beads of water had formed on several ceilings and it was literally raining inside their house. This homeowner learned a very valuable lesson, albeit a little late, that it is a good idea to shut the water to the house off at the main when leaving for vacation.

Heavy Rain Burns out Sump Pump

Heavy Rain Burns out Sump Pump

During very heavy thunderstorms the sump pump in this Piscataway basement was overworked and burned out. By the time we were called in there was over 2 feet of water in this basement. Before the sump pump could be replaced we had to pump out the water using a submersible pump so the plumber can access the area where the sump pump was located. Sadly, this homeowner was storing a lot of things in the basement which were ruined. He has since learned to store things off the floor and to use plastic totes instead of cardboard boxes. Better late than never!
