Spring is Springing!

We can see a light at the end of the snow tunnel!  Days are getting longer, and the snow is melting.  Melting snow is great, however, when you own a home, there are a few things to remember.  If your home has a sump pump, check it!!  Make sure it works properly.  Check your sump cavity and make sure the water is getting pumped out before it reaches your floor level.  Also, make sure you re-attach the hose outside that connects to the sump, and ensure that when it pumps, the water is draining away from your home.  This is also a good time to check and make sure your lot grade is angled away from the house, and especially if your landscaping is newer, that there are no concave areas close to your house.   Lastly, check your eaves and downspouts, make sure they are all connected and clear of debris.  Then the snow can melt, spring rain can come down, and you are worry free!!
