WINDOW WELLS PROVIDE THE BEST BARRIER AGAINST THE ELEMENTS
Homeowners interested in preventative maintenance should consider installing and cleaning up their window well. Their purpose remains simple; prevent debris from entering the window well by providing a physical barrier between the well and the elements. Most covers are designed to still permit light to enter your basement, too.
Once your window well is installed, adding a cover is quick and easy, and something most homeowners will be able to do themselves. As window wells sit below-grade, it’s important to keep on top of any potential problems to avoid water damage to your home.
How Window Wells mitigate the 3 common water flooding issues
Here are 5 things to look out for, and how you can prevent damage with Window Wells:
1: Debris including snow and leaves pile up: If you think, it’s just leaves that require removing from your window well., think again. During the winter months, check your window wells to ensure that compacted snow or ice isn’t blocking your drainage system.
2: The drain is filled with soil that enters the well: Remember that soil can enter the well and cause problems if the window well is the wrong size. If it’s too narrow, soil may push in from the sides. If the well is short, water may wash over the sides, carrying soil and plugging the drain.
3: Accumulation of water on the floor beneath the basement window: To determine whether drainage is the problem, run water from a hose into the well to see how quickly it drains away.
Preventive measures must be implemented to counter mold growth in your home. And one of the most important measures that you can take up is water clean-up for your home.
