Why a Drainage System is an Important Investment for Your Home in 2019
Ensuring that your home drainage system is in place and working well is critical for preventing a wide variety of issues for your home, landscaping, and health. If your home is missing one of these vital systems, 2019 is the time to take action! When you add a drainage system, you ensure that your home will be safe and dry for years to come. Not only is this a significant step to ensuring the safety of your loved ones, but it will also help improve your home’s value and ensure you don’t have costly damages.
When water is draining where it shouldn’t, you can create a variety of issues including erosion. Not only can these cause problems for your local water supply (soil erosion is one of the many pollutants that has caused significant damage to the Chesapeake Bay) but problems to your home too. Erosion can cause your foundation, hardscaping, and landscaping to be damaged, and in severe situations, it can expose utilities. When it comes to landscaping, erosion can disrupt the soil enough to cause large trees to become uprooted and putting them at risk of falling. All of these issues can be prevented with the help of a simple drainage system.
Keep Your Basement Dry
A damp basement can cause all sorts of issues within your home. Not only can it allow for the growth of mold and mildew which can cause rot and health issues, but it can make your heating and air conditioning costs rise too. This means a damp basement can add to your health care costs, energy costs, and repairs; that’s a stack of bills you just don’t need! While there are a wide variety of things that can cause a damp basement, if your yard is not draining the water properly can seep through walls and cause cracks that allow it to enter.
Prevent Standing Water
Standing water is not only unattractive and dangerous for your landscaping, but it’s also a health risk as well. By preventing standing water with a drainage system, you can eliminate an unnecessary threat to you and your family. There are dozens of bacteria and parasites that thrive in stagnant water including mosquitos. Not only can these threaten you, but they can be even more dangerous to children and pets.
