Water Management During and After Winter in South Dakota
Between flooding, freezing temps, wind chills, and snowy and icy weather, South Dakota has had a pretty rough winter. There are ways to protect your home against the many problems that could affect your basement or foundation during late winter and early spring. Some of these issues include water leaks, mold and mildew, wood rot, foundation cracks, flooding, bowing walls, and more. Proper water management can help you avoid these issues.
Over the winter, water seeps into the porous concrete slabs and freezes, which causes expansion inside the slab. When that water melts, it causes contraction. This cycle of expansion and contraction creates immense pressure and stress for the concrete slab which creates foundation cracks. Once those cracks are there, your basement is at risk for leaks, mold and mildew, pests, wood rot, and even flooding. These cracks also can lead to bowing walls since the wall is weakened.
