April Showers Bring More Than May Flowers - Somerset, MA. 02724
April Showers Bring May Flowers
You may be hearing that phrase a lot lately – and it seems to be holding true with the amount of days it’s rained so far this month! Although the rain is undoubtedly needed in order for a full bloom in May, it may be bringing more than just flowers with it.
Basement flooding is a real concern during these wet months. High volumes of rain can inundate sewage systems and leave the ground soaking up more water than it can handle. So where does excess ground water go when the earth can no longer absorb it? If you guessed the basement, you’re correct! This type of water damage is called ground seepage, and it occurs when excess ground water seeps through the cracks in you home’s foundation after heavy rainfall.
Given its environment, ground seepage can leave room for mold growth if it’s left untreated. Our trained professionals will ensure the affected area is properly ventilated and dehumidified to prevent mold growth from occurring.
