So, I am pretty much done with all the rain. My basement has about 5" of water and water came through the outside wall of my home office, ran across the floor and now my family room carpet is soaked. It's still freaking raining! I need French drains but no money for that. Does anyone have an arc I make reservations for?
Sorry to hear that, basements, sub pumps and all that stuff is foreign to us seeing as we don't have any of that in Oklahoma & oil heating was a bigger PIA the tackle lol but our basement does get water in it - not a huge amount but it is still a PIA, ours leaks in 3 different locations all around the basement, we are just lucky that the floor is slightly slanted and it eventually trickles into the sub pump area getting pumped outside.
The aftermath of rain is annoying to clean up, we have the dehumidifier downstairs but it still takes ages for it to fully dry up - so I have to go down and use a spray bottle with bleach in it to stop mold from growning. We are hoping to build 2 rooms down there as we go into winter and my big issue is finding a way to fix the leaks arghhhhhhh
Do you have a wet/dry shopvac you can use to suck up the water and dump it outside?? Hopefully you can find a solution to the problem.
I am SO over the rain, yes we need it & it is great and all but I need to get out and do yard work & I can't cause everything is soaked. As it is I had to let the girls out late cause it was raining and looks like more is coming so I am no doubt going to have to go get them back in their coop soon.
Any one else finally seeing cicadas?? I thought we'd managed to escape the horrible cicada ordeal until I saw some on my plants yesterday grrrrrr & I have been hearing them all in the trees out the back - I am a wuss when it comes to big ugly bugs lol I hope we only get a few and not the swarm I have been hearing about for months!
Hope everyone has a good day!!!
