30 May Emergency Carpark De-Flooding in Sydney
Basement carparks are generally an incredibly efficient use of space. They are great options for a city that is always highly developed, creating parking areas for building residents, employees, customers, and commuters. However, flooding is a risk factor that comes with placing a parking lot underground.
While these facilities are carefully engineered to avoid flooding, it can and does still happen. In this article, we’re going to take a look at why flooding can occur in basement carparks, and why expert de-flooding services are absolutely necessary.
How does a flooded carpark occur?
Flooding in general occurs for a wide range of reasons. That might be due to a burst water pipe or fire hydrant, a heavy downfall of rain and poor drainage, a blocked drain, or some kind of natural disaster. When a facility is situated below the ground, it goes without saying that it is even more at risk of flooding… because water runs to the lowest point!
Basement carparks are designed to ensure that water does not enter. What’s more, drainage is usually impeccable, so that any water that does find its way inside is carried away quickly and safely. However, this doesn’t always go to plan.
At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we’re the best in the business when it comes to helping carpark owners de-flood their parking facility. We see a wide range of causes, from the usual suspects to some very unexpected reasons! The most common ones we see are:
- Heavy rain or storms, with so much water volume that the drainage system cannot cope. Often, this is the result of debris being swept into your basement carpark and blocking drain entrances, trenches, and pipes.
- Burst pipes are the bane of carparks all around the world. Often, a number of high-volume pipes run along the ceiling of an underground carpark. If one of these bursts and the source of the water cannot be stopped, then flooding will occur.
Either one of these causes can see your basement carpark flood quickly. The most important thing at that point in time is to locate the cause of the flood. Once the problem has been located, you can treat it and stop the water pouring into your carpark. Then, you’ll need to deal with the existing floodwaters. This is where expert de-flooding is essential.
