A city in Illinois, Joliet is named after the French-Canadian explorer, Louis Jolliet. The fourth-most populated city in the state, it has a population of about 148,000 and is the state’s fastest growing city.
Joliet sees an annual precipitation level of about 37 inches, and this accounts for many of the city’s flooded and damp basements. Whether it is caused by the weather or damaged pipes, a wet basement is never good news. Water is highly erosive and it can wreak havoc not just on your basement’s floors and walls, but on your home’s foundation, as well.
