Wet, damp, mold, and bugs too often describe our homes, inside and out. Hugh’s Services, Inc. can help you dry things up. A wet or flooding yard, wet basement or water home condition can be caused by many different things and is usually corrected on an individual basis.
Directing ground water away from the foundation by installing underground field drains, extending underground storm lines and creating swales is often an easy way to get your yard and home dry, both efficiently and affordably. Your lawn retains its same appeal but stays dry even during wet seasons.
At times, drying a wet yard is as simple as thinning or removing trees and shrubbery to allow sunlight and air to evaporate wet, muddy yard areas. Grass is then planted in order to absorb excess rainwater. Grading and elevating the ground levels (berms) around the foundation walls can also help dry out your home.
Occasionally, underground springs or poorly percolating soil, may cause a basement to still remain wet. Collapsed or incorrectly installed drain tile may be the culprit. Replacing the drain tile underneath your basement floor, installing sump pumps (with underground sump pump extension lines) and resealing foundation walls usually completes the task.
Once your yard and basement are dry, you can start enjoying your home again. We will even replace your water-damaged framing, drywall, trim and flooring, and complete your project with fresh painting or wall-coverings. From start to finish, Hugh’s Services can alleviate your wet home concerns and provide peace of mind. Give Hugh’s Services a call today to get your home dry again!
