in Chester County
It’s that time of year again!
If you look out the window you will notice that in the Chester County area, there has been a higher than normal level of rainfall already this year. This is the time that homeowners need to check their properties to see if there are any Waterproofing needs. There are some signs that you can look for on the inside and outside of your property.
Large puddles in your yard
During heavy rains, there may be large puddles that seem to take forever to drain. This could be a sign that your yard isn’t properly sloped to remove the water. This could also lead to the yard becoming over saturated. When water pressure builds up it has to go somewhere. Unfortunately, it may mean your basement.
Dampness or water in your basement
You don’t see what is going on behind the walls or under the floor. What you see on the floor or walls is the end result. Slapping some sealant on the wall may stop the leak temporarily, but it is like putting a Band-Aid on a major wound. These issues need to be handled at the first signs to avoid major repairs down the line. Also consider that damp drywall is a perfect place for mold to grow. Along with mold comes major health issues. Symptoms of mold exposure can include nasal and sinus congestion, runny noses, coughing and sneezing and also throat irritation. Once the mold becomes airborne it can have other major health effects
