We all know the old saying about April Showers, and it's true. This month is typically filled with rainy days for most of us. With rain showers falling, and the winter thaw taking place across most of the country, the potential for basement flooding is on the rise... much like the water levels!
There are many reasons for basement flooding:
This could be a burst or leaking pipe, a leaking waste line, a broken supply hose for your washing machine, or a leaking water tank or water heater.
If your window wells fill with water (from a flooded yard or clogged gutters), don’t be surprised if water leaks into the basement through and around the windows.
This is by far the most common cause of basement flooding. Excessive amounts of rain, poor yard drainage and sewer backups are common culprits behind a leaky foundation. Fortunately, it’s a problem that Basement Systems can solve by installing a warrantied, industry-leading waterproofing system.
While you can't always stop your basement from flooding, experts say early detection of a leak, or water damage is EARLY DETECTION.
The Qolsys IQ FLOOD detector works with your IQ Panel 2, and Alarm.com mobile app. You can get notified on your smartphone when the IQ FLOOD is triggered. The faster you can address the leak, and fire up the wet-vac, the better off you'll be.
