Water mitigation is a commonly needed service for those suffering water damage during the increased spring-seasonal rainfalls. This is an important time of year to make sure your house is properly weatherized and to be mindful of conditions that could lead to flooding in your home. Despite our best efforts, flooding still happens; that’s why SMART Environmental Services is here to help with our services.
Clean Your Gutters
Clogged gutters can direct water into your basement which can lead to flooding and water seeping into your foundation. Flooding can lead to cracks in your home’s foundation and several other severe issues. Regularly cleaning your gutters is a simple and easy way to reduce your risk of needing emergency water mitigation in your home.
Checking and re-caulking your windows if they need their seal refreshed is an important step in keeping your home comfortable and lowering your energy bill. Sealing your windows prevents air leaks and helps keep out moisture. Any steps you can take to prevent moisture buildup within your home are a great way to hopefully avoid water and mold damage to your home.
A plastic or metal window well cover is strongly recommended to keep debris, leaves, animals, rain, and snow from getting into your window wells. You’ll want to check your cover regularly to make sure it’s still intact with no major holes or cracks to allow water through. Allowing moisture to build up in an area such as a window well creates the perfect environment for mold to grow and might require water mitigation. A cover is the best way to prevent this in your window wells.
