According to the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness, peak tornado season for the state of Ohio is officially between the months of April and July. It does not mean however that tornados won’t happen at any other time. In 2016, there were 24 tornados in Ohio and the severity of each was different. According to the Ohio weather safety page, the basement of your home is the safest place to be in case of a tornado warning.
Extreme downpours or a few inches of rain can easily tell you whether you have a dry basement or not. If there is a problem with the drainage of your home, the few inches of rain can find a way to the basement and make the basement unlivable.
Finding a safe, comfortable place in case of a tornado warning becomes a bit unlikely if the basement has issues. But, that is not the right reason to find a waterproofing company. If you have water in the basement of your home, the structural integrity of the home becomes an issue, and a huge liability if you ignore the problem.
There are many problems associated with a wet basement:
- Structural damage to the home
- Damage to the walls, floors and belongings stored in the basement
- Respiratory Issues
- unlivable wasted space
- Mold and mildew
- humidity that can affect the air quality of your home
