What do you get when the Indiana snow melts away and spring rains begin to fall? Water all over the place! Many Indianapolis homeowners know that spring holds the potential for rising or standing water as well as basement flooding. While our plumbers at Indy Renovation can help with any emergency flooding that might occur, your best defense is taking preventative measures.
The bottom line is that you want to make sure the rainwater doesn’t collect near your home’s foundation. Here are some tips for giving water a clear path away from the house:
- Clean out your gutters and downspouts so that they’re clear of debris.
- Extend downspouts away from the house.
- Make sure the soil around your home’s perimeter is graded away from your foundation.
If your house has a sump pump, make sure it’s in proper working condition and that the drainage pipe directs water away from your home’s foundation. A quality sump pump is important to keeping your foundation dry and your basement free from water damage.
