Though water is great for plants, animals, and life all around, it is not for the home! This is why waterproofing your basement is so important.
Water can weaken foundations, damage floors, and cause mold, all of which are dangers to your home.
Mold is especially dangerous. It forms in a dark, poorly vented area with high moisture levels and the basement is often neglected, allowing the mold to grow for a longer period of time.
It’s impossible to know where a hurricane will strike, but if history has taught us anything if you live on the coast, you know from experience that it can be devastating. So it’s important to protect your waterfront property.
You know too that weak tropical storms hitting the U.S. can cause significant impacts, particularly if it moves slowly and triggers flooding rainfall.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 – November 30th.
According to researchers, the 2018 hurricane season is expected to be “above average.” They are projecting 14-18 tropical storms & hurricanes.
Here is another fun tidbit for you… The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is set to expire on July 31st. Smack dab in the middle of hurricane season. After a brutal year last year, the NFIP currently owes nearly $25 Billion to the US Treasury and taxpayers for covering claims. So you can bet your flood policy will be going up AGAIN this year.
