Rain, Rain Go Away

>> Saturday, May 24, 2008

Our Memorial Weekend plans were shot by the enormous amounts of rain, cold temperatures and high winds. Not ideal camping weather.

As I look out my window and see standing water I wonder just how many people went away this weekend and will come home to Water damage in their basements?

That happened to us in our old house. We had never had any problem with water in our basement but an exceptionally wet spring led to flooding in our area. Many roads were closed due to high rivers. And when we returned from a weekend away our basement had standing water. There was just nowhere else for it to go and our sump pump couldn’t keep up.

Luckily the damage wasn’t too severe and we were able to handle the water damage restoration ourselves- with some help from the internet, lots of towels and a very large dehumidifier. We even got tips on preventing it from happening again.

If you’re experiencing water in your basement this spring be sure to log on to DryOut.net. They have lots of “do it yourself” tips. And if it’s just too much for you to handle they have nationwide Water damage services – and an emergency number if you really need them now.

Rain is not fun when your house isn't quite up to it. We used to flood every spring when I was growing up. The smell and fan noise was unbareable.
