Summer Thunderstorms = Water Damage To Your Basement
A recent study has shown that in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, a strong summer thunderstorm can be expected around every 5 to 7 days throughout the months of July and August. While it may be springtime now, summer is right around the corner, and you may be facing the heavy rains before you know it. These heavy thunderstorms will typically be rather short, but they come with strong winds and drenching downpours, the type of rain that doesn’t settle in to the soil around your home, but washes out like buckets being dumped all around your space.
These strong summer storms can wreak havoc on your foundation as soil is washed away repeatedly, and your basement should your foundation have any already present cracks to allow water inside. During this time of year, it’s not rare to have water find its way into your basement and your home, and suddenly you’re presented with a much more serious issue than a temporarily soggy yard or a few fallen branches. Before the strong summer thunderstorm season gets underway, it’s important to take control of the safety of your home, and to seek out solutions to stop the water from making its way in.
