Rainy Day? Three Things You Should Check Around Your Home

Thursday, July 6th, 2017 by Amy Brown

If it is a rainy day, checking these three areas of your home can help you gauge if your home is a candidate for potential water damage. So grab your umbrella and galoshes and check out your home - feel free to jump in a puddle or two along the way!

Rainy Day Check List

1. Check your Downspouts

  • Are they effectively taking water AWAY from the foundation of your home? 
  • Is there erosion being caused by rushing water on your sidewalks or driveway?
  • Is there pooling along the base of your home? You want that water moving away from your foundation!

2. Check your Access Well

  • Is the access well to your crawl space filling with water?
  • What about your Egress Window access?

3. Visible Signs of Dampness and Water

  • Grab a flashlight and take a peek into your crawl space. Is there any standing water? What about dampness on the walls?
  • Head to your basement, check for damp walls.
  • Check out the floors of your basement, particulalry near your sump pump. Is your sump pump working properly?
