As winter goes on and we go back and forth with temperatures from the 40's to below freezing, the ground will go back and forth from freezing to thawing during those fluctuating temperatures. As this happens during the winter months and into the spring, this will cause the ground around the exterior of buildings and houses to pool water.
When we have rain or snow melting this can cause leaks around the foundation of your home or business. You should do checks on the exterior and interior of buildings and houses to make sure there is no water coming in and causing water damage.
Once the areas are checked you should go back and add soil and/or sod to those areas to fix the pooling of water and fix drainage to take water away from the foundation. On the interior if cracks or leaking occurs you should take measures to fix any of those areas where water is coming in. Once the cracks have been fixed any water damage should be mitigated properly to decrease your chances of any secondary issues such as mold.
Taking these steps will help keep your building or home dry on the inside and keep water from pooling around the perimeter.
