With water levels increasing every rainfall, a local real estate agent explains it is important for home owners to take the extra precautions to keep their homes dry. As more and more rain comes down, water levels will rise and cause possible damage to homes and properties along the shore line. There have been multiple reports of back yards being over saturated and basements flooded. Sara Glenn, a Realtor from True North, says that there are multiple ways to help keep your house dry during the rainy days.
Glenn says checking the sump pumps in basements on a regular basis could also lower the risk of flood damage. She states that, water levels have run in cycles throughout the last few decades and that home owners should not worry that this will be a constant issue.
