The sounds of rain
The sounds of rain can be extremely refreshing and relaxing. It can also be the sound of disaster. When we do get a big down pour the rain will make puddles around your home. The water then may seep through the cracks in your foundation causing water to start to sneak into your home. Once the water has found its way into your home it can cause flooding. The flooding can then cause mold and mildew that could become extremely dangerous.
A few ways to help prevent water include:
- Add gutter extensions
- Plug gaps
- Reshape the landscape
- Waterproof the walls
Once the water gets through the foundation and starts to flood your basement, it may be best to call a restoration company to come and help. Water may need to be extracted and mold testing may need to be conducted. If you think you may need cleaning and restoration services give SERVPRO a call. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
