Now that spring rains will be on the way, it’s time to review the exterior of your home, where 90% of moisture intrusions occur. Clean out your gutters and make sure you have downspout extensions away from the house. Put in window well covers over all your wells. And use cheap fill dirt to make sure the grading is such that a basketball will roll away from your house, not toward it. Finally, we recommend dehumidifiers in all basements between now and November. These simple steps will go a long way to keep moisture out of your home — and not giving mold spores a chance to germinate. Contact us with any questions or to schedule an inspection to make sure you are on the right track!
