Spring is officially here and although we are past the “April Showers” and now into the “May flowers”, it does not mean the rains will stop. NOAA is predicting higher temperatures through June and above-average precipitation for Alabama. Is your home ready for rain? We want to make sure your basement and crawlspace stay dry when the rains come.
Don’t Think It Can’t Happen To You
We know you feel like the chances of water leaking into your basement or crawlspace are slim to none. We wish that were true but almost every home experiences water leakage and damage at some point in its lifetime. In fact, statistics state that 1 out of every 50 homes will experience water damage in its lifetime. When you think of water damage, hurricanes and tornadoes come to mind and make headlines, but the fact is it’s the everyday erosion of rain and foundation issues that create the most claims. Don’t think it can’t happen to you! It is smarter and money savvy to be proactive in protecting your home from water damage rather than reactive once it happens.
When it Rains, It Pours…
With summer storms approaching, the chances of water eroding around your foundation and getting into your basement or crawlspace increase. A recent quote from the home inspection agency explains that “Water intrusion is the Number 1 enemy because it attacks from all potential angles of the home, from the roof down to the foundation. It degrades materials like sheetrock and drywall, it rots wood and it can lead to microbial growth.”
That tiny leak or musty smell you have now can quickly grow into a major water leak with mold issues. You can learn more about how rainwater can damage your home in our blog here. At Aqua-Guard, we want to help. We offer free estimates- just give us a call.
Older Homes Are More At Risk
Older homes have higher chances of water damage due to outdated and/or eroded building materials. We have learned a lot about water defense but many homes have not caught up. Sadly, many pay the price. Over 60 percent of basements have a moisture problem happening now. Of those, about 38 percent develop mold and fungus growth. Just because you can’t see the water does not mean your home is ok. Waiting to address even minor water issues can be very detrimental to your home and your health. With the warm summer weather approaching you can’t afford to not evaluate and ask “Is your home ready for rain?”
