Cereal City, otherwise known as Battle Creek, Michigan, has a history of flooding. This is not uncommon in Michigan since the state is bordered by four of the Great Lakes: Huron, Michigan, Erie, and Superior. Unfortunately, excessive water can be dangerous to your home.
With the risk of flooding comes an increased possibility of the adverse effects associated with water damage. Mold and mildew grow in damp, wet, and dark areas, making a flooded basement a haven for these health dangers. Structural damage can also be caused by standing water.
To prevent these issues you should be sure to have your Battle Creek basement waterproofed before it floods next by StayDry Waterproofing.
Water can come into your home in many different ways. It can come over the top of basement walls, through cracks and tie rod holes, and through leaky pipes or drains. When there is too much water outside of your home for your drain systems to handle, water runs into your home through waterlogged concrete, overflowing drains, or even from rising groundwater.
No matter the cause, water in the basement is extremely dangerous to your home and even your health. The best way to handle water in your basement is by calling a StayDry expert. We can handle these problems by repairing foundations, filling cracks or patching leaks, waterproofing to prevent future problems, or installing drainage systems to keep pressure off of your walls.
We understand how devastating it can be to have personal belongings damaged or destroyed because of water damage in a leaky basement. This is one of the reasons we offer our basement waterproofing services to the residents in the Battle Creek area. Some of the services you can take advantage of are:
Sump Pumps: If you have water seeping into your basement often, a sump pump can collect it and pump it out away from your home. StayDry can install a high-quality, energy efficient sump pump to give you peace of mind.
French Drain Systems: One of our most popular services is the French drain system. Much like the sump pump, a French drain system collects water and moves it away from your home. You can even connect it to a sump pump for greater efficiency. We use a modern Hydroflo French drain system for the most precise water drainage.
Crack Injection: Foundation cracks can be a sign of structural concern and also a way for water to work its way into the home. We can fill these cracks easily with a material that will keep out water and prevent further damage.
Crawl Space Repair: Your crawl space is another area that can be prone to flooding and water damage. We can waterproof and encapsulate your crawl space to keep out water and improve the value of your home.
Foundation Repair: If your foundation has taken on more extensive water damage, you may need to straighten, stabilize, and/or fortify the wall(s). Our foundation repair experts can assess your foundation and help find a solution that works best for your home and budget.
Basement floods are a serious matter. As with most parts of Michigan, Battle Creek is quite prone to these damaging effects. When it comes down to it, preventing water damage will always be cheaper than repairing it, so it’s essential you protect your basement, and therefore your home, from flooding.
