Water restoration work in Morton Grove
This water restoration work in Morton Grove was due to bad sump pumps and a bad drainage system. Make sure that your downspouts are setup correctly so you can get as much water as possible away from your house. It also is important to make sure you have good sump pumps that you change ever 3-5 years. It is so not worth the risk to your house and bottom line to be cheap about your sump pumps.
These homeowners had to have four feet of drywall taken out of their basement to prevent mold growth. The water hit the insulation so we had to remove the drywall and insulation to make sure the mold didn't grow. It important to get your walls dry as quick as possible.

Here are some tips to help you avoid water damage in your Morton Grove home:
1.) regular maintenance on your plumbing and roof
2.) replacing your sump pump every 2-4 years
3.) do not buy the cheap sump pumps
4.) rodding your drains and sewer pipe every year, or so depending on your conditions
5.) avoid flushing baby wipes, paper towels, and feminine products
6.) check your windows, door jams, and foundations for signs of water damage frequently
7.) regularly inspect gutters, downspouts, and window wells to make sure there is no blockage and proper draining
8.) check the backs of appliances and look at the plumbing, or water supply lines to check for leaks and corrosion
9.) make sure windows and doors are closed when it is raining especially those leading to the basement
10.) run a slow drip through your plumbing supply lines and into the drains during the winter to keep water moving, so as to prevent freezing of the pipes
11.) keep your cabinet doors on outside walls that have plumbing supply lines in them open during the winter a little bit, because they can freeze even if the room is 70 degrees. Drafts and poor insulation can lead to plumbing supply lines freezing enough to break in an otherwise warm room.
