Basement drying in North Riverside
You see our drying equipment in this North Riverside basement due to the flood damage they had last week. The carpet is already gone at this point. Our drying equipment is also doing the job by applying heat and removing water. The basement drying in North Riverside here only took 48 hours due to the amount of heat our drying equipment put in the basement.
Applying heat to walls and floors will help bond water escape into the air so the dehumidifiers can do the rest. The dehumidifier takes the water right out of the air. The dehumidifier works by freezing the water onto coils. It then melts the ice into a drip pan that drains through a tube into the sewer or outside.

Here are some tips to help you avoid water damage in your North Riverside 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.
