Wet Basement After a Snow Melt?

After a heavy snow comes water. This is just one of the many certainties we all face. Proper runoff and drainage can help direct water away from your foundation, but water can still sneak by. A sump pump can help push water away from your home. If your drainage or sump pump aren’t in proper working order, then melting snow could turn from flake to pond in your basement.

A wet basement is more than just a headache. Depending on how much water invades the space, it could signal serious damage to the structure of your home. In fact, just an inch of water creeping across the floor can cost you more than $10,000.

Here are a few tips you can employ to make sure your home stays dry during snow melt or spring rains.

1) Check the Gutters and Foundation Drainage.

2) Call a waterproofer!

3) Invest in a Sump Pump with an Alarm.

If your home has a water damage call SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth to make it "Like it never even happened."
