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.
A flooded basement can result in damaged electronics and appliances, can rot wooden posts and weaken foundations, and it can foster mold and mildew growth which can pose as health risks for you and your family.
Given these issues, when your basement starts to get flooded, it’s best to call a Perma-Seal professional to take care of the problem. Even if your basement isn’t flooded yet, you can call a Perma-Seal professional to ensure that it won’t flood when the rainy season comes.
A professional can also check your pipes, your walls and floors, your gutters, etc., to see what other factors may contribute in your basement flooding, and repair or replace what is needed. Sometimes, you might find yourself DIY-ing some problem areas, but without addressing the root cause, your repairs won’t last long, or might even worsen the situation.
Before things get out of hand with your basement floods, be sure to call a Perma-Seal professional and ensure the safety of both your home and your family. A dry basement will give you peace of mind, and a home that will not only stand on a sturdy foundation, but it will also be a safe and healthy environment for you and your family.
