How do you know if you are experiencing a drainage problem on your home or business property? There are a few obvious signs that there is a matter that should be taken care of quickly. All Valley Plumbing pros are equipped for all drainage service & repair in Bothell conditions that include:
- Gutters that overflow can mess up paint and siding and cause structural damage.
- Short downspouts shoot water directly into the foundation, where significant loss and injury may occur.
- Stains in the cellar may be from surface water or water below the ground.
- Tiny foundation cracks are to be expected. Openings greater than 1/8” wide suggest a greater problem. Monitor the size of gaps to see if they widen over time.
- White or gray mineral residue deposited by water, known as efflorescence, that develops on cellar walls or sizable flaking patches identified as spalling may be indicative of a problem with water flow.
- Mildew originating below the roof in the attic is often from some difficulty on the ground, as moisture from the cellar or crawl space has risen through the building and condensed on the ceiling of the attic.
- Channels of water throughout the landscape or mulch that gathers at one site in the yard are not typical.
There are quite a few practical resolutions for drainage issues. Remedies may include new gutters or downspouts or installation of a sump pump, drywell or French drain. These treatments guide water flow where you want it to go instead of where it shouldn’t.
