Proper Drainage And Home Flood Solutions
Poor drainage is what allows the water in, and poor drainage can affect just about every type of home or business no matter where they’re located or the type of weather experienced. With poor drainage, water from even a light rainstorm will begin to accumulate in puddles in and around a building or establishment, and this allows this moisture to work its way into your space in the form of a leak. At AA Action Waterproofing, we take care to find just what type of drainage problem you’re working with, and how to best fix your specific problem so worrying over leaks can be a thing of the past.
Common Home Flood Solutions:
The three most common ways we keep water draining out of and away from your home in order to avoid accumulating moisture are:
- Sump pumps – If water seeps into your basement often, the installation of a sump pump to pump water out and away from your home may be needed. We use this method in situations where basement and foundation issues cause water to get into the home, and this is a very common method that can keep the original structural integrity of your home intact.
- Drainage culverts and contours – With drainage culverts and contours, water that would normally accumulate around your property and seep into your home is turned away, and this can help to move water in a safe fashion away from your structure.
- Surface drains – Surface drains are a simple solution that can solve various drainage issues. If you are looking for a more affordable method to eliminate accumulating moisture in your space, this could be the answer you’re looking for.
All drainage problems are different, just as all structures are different, and this is why we use different methods in order to tackle these problems individually. When it comes to accumulating moisture, you’re risking your property and the actual structure of your home, so these are problems that should always be taken seriously.
