25 May Drainage Solutions
The rainy season in East Tennessee runs from January through July and includes December. Typically, May is the wettest month, averaging five inches of precipitation. Especially during the sunny summer months, rain is a good thing. It helps rehydrate your lawn, flowers, and gardens and allows the world to function as it’s supposed to. But, for homeowners and business owners, too much rain isn’t always favorable.
Too much rain can turn into standing water or overflow and can wreak havoc on buildings. From mosquito and bug infestation to structural or foundational damage, too much water can severely harm structures, whether your business or your home.
Some issues around your home are hard to spot. Luckily, there are a few telltale signs that you may have a drainage problem: standing water, erosion, and rotting.
Standing water or puddles of water occur when the water has nowhere to go. For example, in your shower, you may experience clogged drains and standing water when too much hair or soap blocks the drain pipes. This same problem can happen in your yard when rainwater has no place to drain. As soon as you notice standing water, call us. The faster we can get to the root of the problem, the better.
Many homeowners are eager to fix their drainage problems themselves and can make matters worse; for instance, erosion or rotting can occur if water removal is done incorrectly. Instead, call the experts who can find the best solution to drain or relocate excess water.
