What To Do When You Discover Your Home Has Sprung A Leak
Have you ever heard of the legend commonly referred to as “The Little Hero of Haarlem“? Well, if you haven’t it’s a pretty straightforward and simple story *spoiler alert, brief synopsis to follow*. Essentially a little boy, discovers that his village will be destroyed because a small leak has sprung in the town’s nearby dike. To save the town, the little boy rushes to the site of the leak and plugs it with his finger and waits for help. Sure enough, after a long while help finally arrives and the people of the town are able to fix the dike, and the little boy is treated as hero. A nice little story, but why did I even bother to tell you about it? The answer, much like the story, is pretty straightforward and simple. Your home could be the next leaky dike.
It’s not everyday that a water leak will develop in your home (though roughly 10% of US homes have one), but when it does happen, the results can be expensive. Especially if the leak goes un-noticed (check out this article to learn a few ways you can check your home for a water leak!). Thankfully, there are lot of little heroes out there, and the folks over at Ameri-Dry* can be your “little hero of haarlem”. They’ve been in the business of basement waterproofing for more than 30 years, and needless to say, they know exactly what it will take to get the job done right. Not only will you have some piece of mind from knowing that your home is being serviced by some of the best in the business, you’ll also be helping to save the planet while you’re at it.
As I mentioned before, roughly 10% of US homes have a water leak, and those water leaks add up to more than 1 trillion gallons of water being wasted per year. That’s enough water to cover the annual usage of 11 million homes. And to make mattes worse, it’s water that you could be paying for! So the next time you discover that your home is in need of either crawlspace or basement waterproofing, do yourself and the earth a favor and call the folks over at Ameri-Dry. This way, you’ll be celebrated just like the little hero of haarlem.
