Springtime Thaw & Wet Basements

April 1, 2015 | Basement Waterproofing

The winter in Illinois brought some days of heavy snow and it has stayed around until recently as the temperatures have slowly started warming up. Now the snow that was around your home has begun to thaw. This thawing along with typical spring rains bring some heavy rains, you want to make sure that your basement is prepared.

Everyone in Illinois is looking forward to the warmer temperatures. However, you need to be aware that these warm temperatures may bring unwanted water into your basement. When the ground water gets saturated around your foundation and the water table rises beneath your foundation, the water will find its way into your basement through any small crack it finds.

That is why it is important to have a professional come in and inspect your home and basement for water leaks and possible areas that are in need of repair.

Don’t let these beautiful spring days turn into a problem for you and your basement.
