A suburb of Chicago, Arlington Heights in Cook County, Illinois is known for Arlington Race Track, home of the Arlington Million, a Breeder’s Cup qualifying event. With a population of about 75,000, it is the most populous ‘village’ in the US.
As a suburb of the Windy City, it’s a small wonder that Arlington Heights shares the same climate. As such, the village is prone to hot and humid summers, cold winters, and thunderstorms in spring and summer. These weather changes are one of the chief causes of perhaps the most common household problems in the area – wet basements.
A wet basement may not seem like much, but given time, it can cause serious issues. Water is very serious, and if left alone, the damage it causes can get worse over time. Family heirlooms or items stored in the basement can get damaged, as well as wood frames, drywall, carpeting, furniture and appliances.
To avoid these problems and more, homeowners would do well to call in a proper basement waterproofing company like Perma-Seal. Perma-Seal can help you get rid of moisture in your basement, and make sure it stays dry no matter what the weather is like outside.
You can call Perma-Seal and have their foundation consultants assess the damage and give you a free estimate, with no obligations and hassles to you.
