Named for the herd of elk living in a grove at its Busse Woods, Elk Grove Village in Illinois is also home to the largest industrial park in the US. Adjacent to Chicago, the village shares the ‘Windy City’s’ extreme weather conditions, as well, with hot summers, cold winters, and thunderstorms common in the spring and summer.
While snow and rains can cause flooded basements, not everyone is privy to the fact that hot weather can contribute as well since this is also a time when pipes burst and pipes back up.
With this in mind, it’s hard not to ignore that our basements are prone to floods the whole year round. This can be a problem since flooded basements can cause a slew of problems in your home – from water damaged appliances, to weakened foundations, to health risks caused by the growth of mold.
To protect your home and your family from the risks brought about by flooded basements, it’s advisable to call in a proper basement waterproofing contractor to make sure your basement stays dry.
