Water Intrusion in Henderson?
Water Intrusion Happens
SERVPRO® of Commerce City has been helping Henderson residents mitigate storm damage for years. With spring comes the opportunity for water intrusion, and now is a good time to inspect your basement and crawl spaces and plumbing and drainage systems for signs of leaks or moisture collection. Here are some tips from at Home Colorado for ways to protect your home from water intrusion:
Basements and Crawl Spaces
There should not be any moisture in basements or crawl spaces. Moisture can be an indicator of a cracked and/or leaking foundation wall. A moisture meter can be used to check the moisture content of finished basement walls. Readings should be relatively consistent throughout a basement. Large variations in moisture content of finished walls could indicate a leaking foundation behind.
Inspect Plumbing and Drainage Systems
Check for leaking plumbing fixtures, dripping pipes, clogged drains, and defective water drainage systems. Regularly clean off, then dry all surfaces such as windowsills where moisture can collect. Expansion joints between bricks, pipes and other building materials that absorb movement should be in good condition, or water intrusion can occur. Storage areas should be kept clean. Allow air to circulate to prevent potential moisture accumulation.
