We can’t control the weather. Rain, snow, or hail; we have no say, and it’s more than just an inconvenience it can cause serious damage. Spring is here and rain is falling so we must be wary of the flooding that may occur in the basement. It’s important to prevent flooding before it happens. You don’t want to be in a situation where your entire basement is flooding leading to possible thousands in damages. Your basement needs an inspection for possible weather damage and if it’s in need of updates.
A QUICK INSPECTION OF YOUR BASEMENT CAN SAVE YOUR HOME
The purpose of a crawl space is to separate the bottom of the house and the wet dirt underneath. When the crawl space floods that water can seep into the under workings of a home. And cause weak spots in the floorboards, create mold, or cause cracks in the foundations. If your house has a basement, it is harder to regulate, being it is farther underground. When soil becomes over-saturated with water, it gradually gets softer and expands.
As the dirt expands, it will press against the walls of the foundation leading to cracks and the foundation sinking right into the ground. Sinking the foundation of your home will lead to cracks in your home and even roof damage. Cracks in your home will deregulate the temperature in your house throughout the year. The protection you normally expect from your home will now be at risk leading to heating and cooling problems.
WATER WILL BRING MOLD
In spring, heavy rains are more common, raising the amount of damage done. Since spring is so active with heavy rains in a short amount of time, it is almost like a constant flow of water against our foundation. This moisture is perfect for mold growth under our house, which can grow upwards through the foundation and into our home. It’s important to protect your basement so you can protect the rest of your home.
