An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure... when it comes to water in the basement, it always pays to be well prepared with a prevention strategy.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Wet basements can wreak havoc and are expected to increase this fall with over a dozen tropical storms and five to eight hurricanes predicted. Since 1947, Vulcan Basement Waterproofing has helped individuals prepare for heavy rain events and avoid wet basements that come with seasonal storms.
- It’s hurricane season again in the Northeast. The Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1st and ends November 30th, with peak season occurring from August through October. Hurricane season is a time when most tropical cyclones are expected to develop across the northern Atlantic.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecasters originally predicted a normal hurricane season this year but have recently upped their prediction due to wind patterns that are extremely conducive to forming a storm, coupled with warmer-than-normal water temperatures due to a mild winter. Expected are a total of 12 to 17 tropical storms, and five to eight hurricanes. It is predicted that two to three of these storms could become major hurricanes. Hurricane Irene hit last year at the end of August, and the infamous hurricane Floyd arrived at the end of September.
Vulcan Basement Waterproofing (http://www.vulcanwaterproofing.com) has a free home inspection service available to all interested homeowners. In fact, since the NOAA increased its prediction for this year’s hurricane season, officials at Vulcan Waterproofing have reported a real need to increase their schedule to meet the growing demand for this free evaluation service. When interviewed recently the owner of Vulcan, Matt Verville said; “In almost every instance where we are asked to provide a free home inspection and basement waterproofing evaluation we find that an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure... when it comes to water in the basement, it always pays to be well prepared with a prevention strategy.”
Even if a basement has not taken on water before, any number of years can pass before a rainstorm might add just enough pressure to force water into the basement. Simply having excess moisture in a basement can slowly cause structural damage or lead to mold or mildew which too can cause structural damage over time.
