How to Keep Your Basement Dry in the Summer
When you think of basements flooding, you may think of severe weather like heavy rain or melting snow typical of spring, but water damage may occur any time of the year, even in the summer. Water damage from weather is not the only cause of flooded basements, either. In places like Billings, Montana, flooding from too much rain is rare. Water damage from leaking pipes, negative drainage, or broken appliances are the usual causes of water issues, and can create bigger problems like mold, mildew, and structural damage. Follow these tips to protect your home and help avoid common causes of basement flooding.
