Be Prepared for Melting Ice in West Middlesex, PA

Melting snow on grass. Melting snow and ice can cause damage to your home or business if not taken care of appropriately.

Oftentimes during winter, we cannot wait for Spring to come. We look forward to the snow and ice melting away and for sunnier days ahead. However, there is one precaution that should be taken before Spring comes. Melting snow and ice can cause damage to your home or business if not taken care of appropriately. The most likely area to flood from melting snow and ice is your basement and crawl spaces: how can this be avoided?

Avoid Flooding from Melting Snow and Ice

Here is what you can do according to StaySafe.org to prevent your basement from flooding in your home:

  • Seal up cracks: Water enters the home by coming through the cracks in the walls and foundations of your home. By simply carrying out an inspection of your external walls, you will be able to identify if you have any cracks. If the cracks are small, then it is an easy job to seal them up.
  • Invest in a sump pump: A sump pump is the best way to remove water in an emergency. It is recommended that you invest in a sump pump and test it regularly to make sure it works.
  • Clear away snow: One of the main reasons that basements flood in the spring is due to snow build-up around the home.
