Even though most of us in Michigan expect the unexpected when it comes to weather, many people weren’t prepared for the massive floods we experienced recently. These record-breaking floods left thousands of residents underwater in more ways than one, faced with significant property losses due to water and mold damage. Even those that had flood insurance weren’t fully compensated for everything, due to depreciation of goods. Some people asked, ‘Is there anything I could have done to better save my belongings?’ The answer is yes. If these individuals had waterproofed their basements, they would not have been forced to throwing away valuable furniture, clothing, mementos, and other treasures.
Keeping things safe and dry
Even if you don’t have a finished basement, it still pays to waterproof. Most of us store all kinds of items in our basement, due to convenience and a lack of storage space. You may have lived in your home for over 20 years with no water seepage in the basement, but that doesn’t mean you are out of the woods. Every now and then the weather in Michigan produces astronomical amounts of rain and snow, leaving property wreckage in its wake. It’s something even the Farmer’s Almanac can’t predict. You can be sitting enjoying a sunset and a light rainfall one minute, and taking cover from torrential rainfall the next. In August, Governor Rick Snyder had to declare a state of emergency in numerous cities across the state. Many people had to leave their homes temporarily because items such as their furnaces and laundry equipment were flooded. You can’t always anticipate flooding, which is why the best defense is a good offense.
