in West Goshen
In the West Goshen area, there has been a higher than normal level of rainfall in the month of June. This is the time that homeowners need to check their properties to see if there are any Waterproofing needs. Often, you do! Here are a few signs that you can look for on the inside and outside of your property to know for sure:
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. Over saturation could lead to Hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic Pressure is the pressure exerted by a fluid at equilibrium at a given point within the fluid, due to the force of gravity. Hydrostatic pressure increases in proportion to depth measured from the surface because of the increasing weight of fluid exerting downward force from above. Basically, when water pressure build up it has to go somewhere. This may mean your basement!
Dampness or water in your basement
If after a heavy rain you see water developing in your basement, you may have a drainage problem. You may think it is a minor issue but after time, hydrostatic pressure can cause erosion of the soil around your foundation and eventually foundation damage. Slapping some sealant on the wall may stop the leak temporarily but not for good.
These issues need to be handled at the first signs to avoid major repairs down the line. Time and time again we get calls from people who have had work done to finish their basements and then once the rainy season comes they find out that there is a problem. Damp drywall is a perfect place for mold to grow. Along with mold comes major health issues.
