An Ounce Of Prevention

When protecting your home from potential water damage, sewer lines and drains aren’t the only things to worry about. Clogged drain tiles at the foundation of your house, as well as clogged gutters, can lead to basement flooding. Here

in Northeast Ohio, virtually every home has a basement, surrounded by a complex system of pipes and drains designed to carry water away from your basement keeping it safe and dry.

Most homeowners are unaware of this system because, for the most part, it is buried underground. It includes storm lines, footer drains, drain tiles and, of course, sewer lines. Keeping your gutters clean is important, but you also have to

make sure all that water cascading down the downspouts is carried away from your home. It’s best to prepare your drains during the fall and winter seasons for a good, free-flowing spring.

Sometimes a damp basement is caused by a clogged drain tile. That’s the pipe—often terracotta—that drains the water from your foundation. Older homes featuring terracotta drain tiles are particularly susceptible to these issues. So before you spend thousands of dollars on basement waterproofing, get peace of mind by spending a few hundred with us. It might be a simple fix.
