Waterproofing Contractors Share Easy Tricks to Try for a Dry Basement

If your basement floods often, it’s likely time to contact waterproofing contractors in Indianapolis as soon as possible. A chronically wet basement is not a problem that is going to fix itself but it is one that can lead to mold growth, foundation issues and other problems. There are a few things you can try on your own before hiring a pro, but if they don’t resolve your issue it’s time to get help.

Clean Your Spouts

Overflowing and damaged spouts are often the culprit when basements are wet. Check yours to make sure they are flowing freely and that all downspouts are extended well beyond your home’s foundation with gutter extensions. You may want to take a look at your neighbor’s downspouts as well and talk to them if their spouts point directly at your home and are close enough to funnel water your way.
