After a chilly winter, everyone is always extremely excited to welcome the warmer weather of spring. Unfortunately, warm weather isn’t the only thing that comes with this otherwise pleasant new season. Spring thaw is a reality that most residential home owners and commercial business owners need to keep in mind. Here’s what it means for your company and home’s drains and plumbing and why it might be a good idea to get in touch with a Chicago IL plumber as soon as possible!
Obviously, when the weather is cold, the ground freezes, and this can take a while to melt. If the spring rains begin to fall before the ground has thawed completely, the water will simply run off of the ice, and this will inevitably lead to drainage problems. Eventually, these drainage problems will lead to flooding in your basement, especially if your home or business has been built at the bottom of a slight hill or if your gutters are clogged or ill-maintained.
What’s the solution?
The only fool-proof way in which to combat the potential negative consequences of spring thaw is to invest in sump drainage systems. This includes a sump basin which will be responsible for collecting any unwanted water in your basement and a sump pump which gets rid of all of this water once it has accumulated in the basin.
