Water Damage Flooding can be caused by a backed up downspout SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin & SERVPRO of Beaverton 503-684-5829 Flooding in your home can be caused by a backed up downspout.

A downspout is an essential part of your gutter system and many problems can occur if it’s not functioning properly. Leaves and yard debris can end up causing plugs and clogs in downspouts leading them to back up and not drain as intended. As you start to plant your spring flowers, be sure to check around the foundation of your home for pooling water caused by downspouts. If you see signs of pooling and puddles make sure to clean out and clear out your downspouts to eliminate the blockage and lessen your chances of flooding from rainwater.
