Check Your Basement! Global Warming is Real
February 22nd, 2018
Wow! Another thaw in February. There must be some truth to global warming and it’s effect on climate change. Days of mild temperatures and two days of rain have created havoc in many areas across Ontario. Streets have been flooded, fields have turned to ponds, and drainage sewers are working overtime to swallow the steady flow of rain water.
Because of all this rain and unseasonably mild temperatures, it is time to check your sump pumps in Barrie and surrounding areas. Sump pumps are having to work endlessly to compete with the volume of water, especially in low lying areas. If you haven’t checked your sump pumps in Barrie as of yet, it would serve you well to do so immediately!
It’s a really good idea for everyone to check their basements for any evidence of water. Your sump pumps may be functioning well, but nature will always prevail and so water has a way of infiltrating your homes. It’s important to check your home for leaky basements in Gravenhurst, Muskoka, and Collingwood. Water can seep into your basements through foundation cracks or poor drainage around the outside of your home. Leaky basements can lead to some really tough issues with mould and pungent odours, so even in traditional snow belt and colder areas like Gravenhurst, Muskoka, and Collingwood check for leaky basements.
