Water, Water Everywhere

If heavy rains are causing you to lose sleep worrying about basement flooding or drainage problems, you probably are not alone. Whenever record rainfall and flooding are on people's minds, our phones are ringing. Drainage can be a big concern -- especially in spring.

Although it's well known that clean gutters and down spouts can help control water runoff, many property owners are not as familiar with other methods to control drainage. Quite often other solutions come from sound landscaping practices.

For example, problems such as water in a basement or muddy turf can often be traced to poor drainage along the base of the building. In that case, simply regrading the soil to slope away from the building may eliminate the problem entirely. Other solutions might include French drains, dry wells, swales or window well adjustments, to name a few. Each property is different and each should be evaluated to determine what would work best.

Ideal Property Management has been helping property owners find answers to their water flow problems for more than 25 years. If you need help finding the best solution for your drainage problems, call us today.
