Long Term Solutions For Flooding In Merrimack Basements
Basements in Merrimack homes are among the hardest of regions in your house to keep dry, and that can be a frustrating reality for many property owners. Even with waterproofing solutions both in the basement and outside of the blockwork, or the installation of diversion equipment like French drains, it still might be a considerable challenge to keep with subterranean level entirely dry. Worse still, breaches in the blockwork combined with hydrostatic pressures of underground water and moisture can flood your lower level. Even without heavy rainfall, individual homes in the area are at a nearly constant threat for flooding due to shifting underground springs.
Reducing the likelihood of this flooding in Merrimack basements is easier said than done and rarely something that homeowners can adequately handle on their own. While any property owner can apply compounds like hydraulic cement to stop the immediate flow of water, the installation of long-term solutions often demands expertise and experience that our SERVPRO professionals bring to the equation.
