Big Melt Could Mean Bad News for Homeowners
COLUMBUS (Andrew Michael) -- With a big melt coming later this week many people are worried about how could damage their homes.
Any excess water around the foundation can help crack your foundation leading to water inside your home.
The gutters on your home do an excellent job of making sure the water gets away from your home, but when they are iced over the water drains right down the side of your home. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clear of any ice.
Also go to your street make sure that the drainage for your sump pump and your downspouts is draining properly and not blocked with ice.
