A village in Cook County, Illinois, Arlington Heights is home to the Arlington Race Track and has a population of about 75,000. A suburb of Chicago, it shares the same weather patterns of the Windy City, that is cold winters, hot summers, and thunderstorms - which are common during spring and summer.
These weather conditions can be a problem for most homeowners, especially in their basements where flooding can occur. While basement flooding isn't caused solely by the weather – it can be caused by damaged pipes and a rising water table. It's a problem that can cause more than just a headache.
