With this much water in the streets, what does your crawlspace look like? Is it flooded, is it just a little wet? Either way you will need to repair it unless you want to have major problems with mold in the near future.
Some houses are up on pillars, but not all of them. If you have a crawlspace in this area (and many people do) you will probably find it flooded. DryZone is available to pump out all that water and begin to dry out the crawlspace.
Much of our service area is coastal shoreline. That means that the area was manually built up. All that dirt that was moved around to build on is looser than the undisturbed ground. It drains differently, and sometimes that will mean a flooded crawlspace in homes close to the flood zone.
So much water that you need a boat. Folks, this wasn't even a tropical storm or a hurricane. Storms like this are more common than you might think. Its time to get a battery backup sump pump system. Some of these people are still without power.
Many people already have one of our SmartSump or SuperSump sump pumps installed. The nice thing is that DryZone can add a battery backup (UltraSump) to those existing pumps for added peace of mind and to help get homeowners through power outtages - right when a sump pump might be needed the most!
The TripleSafe sump pump system is really the top of the line sump system. It is 3 sump pumps in one. It can handle almost anything you can think of and includes a batter backup and alarm system. When storms and flood threaten your home, this added security can make all the difference. Call DryZone for further details.
These pictures show Bethany Beach after the major rain storm we got on March 6, 2013. The roads turned to rivers, and many houses got damaged. DryZone was immediately flooded with calls for sump pumps, pumping out crawlspaces, and batter backup sump pumps.
