Like many of the 50+ services performed every year under the HomeSquare Essentials plan, cleaning underground drain lines, traps & downspouts is one of those classic homeowner responsibilities which never gets done until it’s too late.
As winter thaws into spring, it’s critical to keep the increased amounts of water away from your home. The house is probably already well-protected against water, but this is an important time to make sure the home drainage system is in great shape, because it will be sorely tested during the spring months.
This winter has exposed all the cracks in our houses. Many of our basements suffer from high moisture levels- sweating walls, moldy smell, or actual water accumulation are all symptoms of a basement in need of some attention. Whether your basement is finished in high style or a simple storage area, problems like these require prompt attention; if untreated they inevitably grow worse.
