We have had a lot of rain the past week! More than the ground can handle. Don't let your home become a victim.
Here a few good reminders from the City of Sioux Falls...
With the recent heavy rains and saturated soils, the City recommends homeowners take the following measures to minimize water damage to homes:
•Make sure your sump pump is in good operational condition. Route the sump pump discharge hose as far away from the foundation as possible. (Reminder it is illegal to discharge a sump pump to the sanitary sewer.)
•Ensure the ground slopes away from your house.
•Make sure all window wells and basement windows are protected from water.
•Ensure all gutters are clear of debris and able to operate properly.
•Place extensions on downspouts to route water away from your foundation.
•Seal basement foundation cracks to prevent groundwater seepage.
