April showers bring May flowers, but they can also cause flooded basements.
If you want to make sure your basement stays nice and dry this spring, there’s just a few things you need to do. The key to a dry inside, is a thorough inspection of the outside of your home – and making sure you keep rain and snow away from the walls.
Make sure all of your downspouts are connected, and pointing away from your home. Also, keep the gutters on your roof clear of debris to keep water from running over the sides. And finally, keep your basement’s sump pump in good working order.
If these tips don’t do the trick, you may need to hire a professional water proofing contractor, which you can find at your BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU.
