Wet Basements in July

Huntsvillewet basement floor It’s no secret… it’s raining cats and dogs out there! The first few days of July have been extraordinary for our area, and record setting… almost.   Not only have we had cooler temperatures than normal, we’ve also had a lot of rain.

Across North Alabama, many cities are reporting between 5″ and 10″ of rainfall, and there’s another several inches expected over the next few days.

With all of the excess rain, be sure to monitor the news for flash flood warnings.  Take a look at the water around your property too.

  • Do you have standing water in your basement or crawl space?
  • Is there standing water near the perimeter of your foundation?
  • Are your downspouts directing water far enough away from your home’s foundation?
  • Do you have any cracks in your foundation that are leaking or seeping water?

If you see any of these symptoms, contact AFS for a free inspection and we’ll design a permanent solution to keep your home dry.
