Hurricane Season is upon us once again; The 6 months of the year where we are all buckled into our seats, watching the weather channel or tuned into the radio waiting to hear how bad the coming storms will be.
But while we prepare to be without power, we often forget about the very thing protecting us from the nasty weather; our very own home. With heavy rain and wind comes the chance that water will seep into your home’s foundation. It’s imperative to ensure that your home’s foundation is safe from water damage. Seeing a small leak in the warmer months can lead to a disaster even overnight.
When a storm follows a period of dry weather, the ground surrounding a home will quickly expand just like a sponge swelling when it becomes wet. This rapid growth can push against the foundation of your home and cause serious damage. A small leak can easily turn into a flooded basement within hours. If you have any sign of leakage or dampness, it needs to be addressed immediately, not “next week”.
Have a look around your basement and make note of areas that need to be checked. Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing offers a FREE inspection with no obligation to purchase anything. Click here or call to schedule your appointment now before the next storm can do any damage.
