Do you have areas on your property that simply refuse to drain properly? Water in your yard should dry out within one to two days after a heavy rainstorm. But if water persistently remains in your yard, then you may have drainage issues. Water pooling in your yard not only creates a muddy mess, it causes soil erosion and foundation damage to your home. The best way to maintain a dry basement and stable foundation is proper yard drainage. Fortunately, Residential ResQ has experienced waterproofing contractors that can inspect your property in Connecticut. If you need a drainage system, we’ll install the best waterproofing drainage system for your home’s needs.
What can you do to prevent most drainage problems? To prevent water damage, take these preventative measures:
- Clean clogged gutters by removing debris and leaves on a regular basis. This will prevent water accumulation and seepage around the foundation.
- Repair plumbing leaks and broken water pipes.
- Replant landscaping with water-tolerant plants that can soak up the remaining water.
- Install the proper downspout extensions to divert the flow of water.
If all options fail, then it is time to contact a professional. We can identify the problem areas and solve your home’s drainage problems.
We Get Rid of Standing Water in Your Yard
No two yards are alike when it comes to water-related issues. We thoroughly inspect the drainage system of your home, including the sump pump system and your yard’s slope and grading. We also look at the condition of your soil to improve the soil’s ability to absorb water.
At Residential ResQ, we utilize any of the following waterproofing methods to fix your water drainage issues:
- Surface Drainage
- Dehumidifier Systems
- Primary Sump Pumps/Battery Backup Sump Pumps
- Interior Waterproofing
Our systems will prevent water and structural problems, such as foundation and wall cracks. Without a waterproofing system, a basement is more likely to flood and leak. If the water is not cleaned up, mold and mildew may grow in the basement. This can lead to major health problems and respiratory issues.
