Flooding is typically a dangerous and costly disaster that can affect anything from a single room to an entire building, depending on the intensity and type of flood. However, certain rooms get flooded much more often than others, and as such should be prepared as best as possible against future damages. Here are some of the most common locations in a home where we encounter significant flood damage.
 
Basements
 
Basements are the most low-lying region of a home, which means that if flood damage in Cimarron Hills can reach it, it will. Basements commonly take on inches or feet of water at a time, even for relatively light floods, as this is where most water ends up coming to rest if there isn't another viable low-lying area for it to go to. Basement flooding is often difficult to work with, wide in the scope of its damage, and can even be dangerous, with broken glass and serious contaminants often poisoning any water still inside. We take extreme caution when working with a flooded basement, and have access to heavy pumps to get all the water out as quickly as possible.
 
Low-Lying Rooms
 
Like basements, low-lying rooms or parts of rooms often take on significant flooding damage, as any water elsewhere in the house will naturally seek out that area and pool there. In particularly bad floods, these areas may be inundated and overflowing with multiple inches of water. If you have a low-lying room in your home, consider keeping everything valuable an inch or two off the ground for protection.
 
Bathrooms
 
Bathrooms are often the focus point for light flooding, as they contain a number of fixtures which can easily clog and overflow. Toilets can overflow and cause significant sanitation issues as well, and sinks and bathtubs also have potential for massive overflow.
