One of the most common locations in your McDonough home that requires water damage restoration is the basement or foundation. Since there is water all around our homes, it is no wonder why it can accumulate near your foundation. If too much water becomes present though, it will eventually begin to find and work its way inside where it can create some pretty severe damage. We want to help you keep your basement and foundation from needing water damage restoration, so here are some preventative steps you can take to reduce the risk of excess water finding its way into your home.
Slab leaks, foundation leaks, and basement water seepage are all water damage problems that can commonly be prevented by simply increasing the gradient of the slope of the lawn or landscaping around your home so that it runs away from your foundation.
If we have not already made it clear, water collecting around your foundation is bad news, and often results in water damage restoration. To prevent that from happening, water needs to be funneled, channeled, and directed a safe distance away from your home – hence the need for and purpose of rain gutters and downspouts. If downspouts are not directing water at least 3 feet away from your foundation, purchase extenders that can be easily attached and will channel water further away from your home.
While we know that water damage, especially from exterior sources, cannot be 100% prevented, taking these recommended by the experts at Restoration 1 of McDonough steps can help greatly reduce the risk of it happening to your home.
