Rainy Season Again

Basement flooding

As winter closes we have the spring thaw of all the snow saturating our yards. Shortly after the thaw we start getting our spring rains right behind it without much of a chance for our yards to let the water get further down into the water table or to dry by the sun. All this water with no place to go then means these next rains will not soak down into the yard. This is a big part of those of us in the Midwest that will have the rain puddles all over are yard. Well there are a few ways the water can then get into your home. Your sump pump may go out or a crack in your foundation. It could be possibly that the puddles and water got high enough it came in through the basement windows. The two key things to do is figure out how it got in and fix that and to get the water out as quickly as possible. Water in your basement damages your basement space and will raise the moisture level in the house making it more prone to having a mold problem. We have the expertise and equipment to remove that water and make it "Like it never even happened."
