A major threat facing homeowners is damage caused by water intrusion from heavy rain, lawn irrigation, or soil erosion. During the wet seasons, the presence of water can cause a myriad of issues. For example, your home’s basement and crawlspace, as well as the entirety of your home, can potentially be flooded if you fail to maintain proper drainage and protection. It is vitally important for you to take the steps necessary to prevent your home from falling victim to costly water damage that could threaten its very foundation.
The professionals at Weinstein Construction can protect your home from flooding, mold growth, and efflorescence (harmful salt deposits caused by evaporating water that you find on concrete, brick, stucco, or natural stone surfaces ). We can offer you various drainage solutions to help keep water from damaging your home or building.
You already know that heavy rains can affect your home and lead to problems from the ground up. But did you know that when water saturates the soil around and inside the ground underneath a home, this heavy load can crack or even sink a home’s foundation? Essentially, one of the biggest enemies to a concrete foundation is water, which may lead to cracking and often near-irreparable damage.
But other issues related to water saturation must not be ignored. For example, mold is another factor to consider when considering water damage preventative measures. Where there is moisture, mold can and will grow. And in a house that has been flooded, there is a great deal of moisture, and therefore a substantial breeding ground for harmful mold and bacteria that can not only destroy your property and all the material goods you’ve placed in it, but also harm the health and well-being of all household inhabitants.
As such, it is especially important that you secure your home today, before it is too late. All home owners should know that it is much more cost-effective to take preventative measures rather than deal with actual flooding and subsequent restoration of a home that has been damaged by water.
