Damage From Melting Snow
Regarding recent snow falls, many people don't know about the risk of your house flooding due to the snow melting. The weather can go from snow one day to 50 degrees the next. This causes all the snow to melt quickly which can put your home in danger. The water from the snow can melt and seep into your house. Now, what can you do to prevent this from happening? Do the same think you'd do to keep rain water out of your basement. Keep it away from the foundation in your house if at all possible. Did you know 1 cubic foot of snow produces around 3/4 gallon of water! If you have a couple of feet of snow piling up against your foundation, you’ve got a ticking time bomb that will result in a flooded basement if not dealt with. What if it's too late and you already have water in your basement?
