Rain and Flooded Basements
Heavy rains can bring massive destruction when they hit, especially for homeowners who have unprotected basements. The basement is very susceptible to flooding during heavy rainstorms as the soil around the home becomes saturated and water seeps through cracks in the walls and floor. Flooded basements can be very time consuming to clean up, and depending on the types of belongings stored in the basement, flooding can cause untold amounts of damage.
