This was discovered at a recent home inspection in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island where there were three (3) loose exterior light fixtures and four (4) very loose, dangling, exterior outlets which needed securing. Some of the underlying wiring was beginning to corrode from water intrusion.

Water Damage Restoration Services & Repairs
Water damage is dangerous and can cause major floods. Homes and businesses across the United States are at a greater risk of water damage than ever before. Recent global climate patterns are causing heavier precipitation and less predictable weather patterns, such as hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, and flash floods to name a few. This means that your property stands a greater risk of water damage and loss due to water intrusion which can often have severe resulting damages and negative health implications. It only takes one inch of water to do significant damage to a structure and its contents, and even worse, threaten the structural integrity of your home or business.

When does “good” or “better” become the enemy of the “best?” It is important to keep water from destroying your home and your belongings. Water intrusion is the most obvious, and while it usually can be visually detected, it can sometimes be felt due to high humidity levels. But what about harmful things we can’t see, feel, or smell? Radon, a gas that can cause lung cancer for example, is hard to detect because it’s an odorless gas. While it can be detected, it takes a special measuring device to determine if the levels are safe. Radon is not the only gas that comes from the ground/water.
Industrial discharges, urban activities, agriculture, groundwater pumpage, and disposal of various wastes can all affect groundwater quality. Additionally, fuel and toxic chemical spills may enter the groundwater and contaminate the aquifer while pesticides and fertilizers can accumulate and migrate to the water table.
What does this mean to you? It means that the water in the ground is probably not safe. It means that the gasses in the ground are not safe. It means that harmful contaminants can get into our home and living space via water, vapors, gasses, and air. Any waterproofing that does not address these problems is an incomplete system.
At SafeSeal, we are committed to providing the best Chicago basement waterproofing system and sewer backup prevention available. The proof is in the design of the systems we install. A homes living space should be free of all things harmful to the structure, the home itself and more importantly to the our loved ones who occupy the home.
What is the reason for entire lakes disappearing; entire drinking wells disappearing; and oceans receding?
All I know is that there is an increase of sinkholes, earthquakes and volcanoes; paired up with extremely low solar activity. These things all relate to the mysterious disappearance of water and I explain why.

Host, Sarah Rutan: Following heavy rains, it’s a good idea to inspect your home’s foundation and crawlspace for signs of water intrusion. Today we’re in Oakland with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Jeremey Ke of All Seasons Construction to learn what to look for.
Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Jeremey Ke: Groundwater issues are a major concern in the Oakland and Berkeley area. We get a lot of water in our hills that saturate the ground, and that water wants to make its way through the ground, out to the Bay eventually. On its way, it often encounters a lot of home foundations and makes its way through the foundation and into the crawlspace. And over time, this could be a major concern for damage to your crawlspace and damage to your foundation.
We strongly recommend that homeowners, after heavy periods of rain, do an inspection of their foundation and crawlspace, and look for signs of water intrusion. And those signs may be white effervescence that makes its way around the perimeter of the foundation but also on the crawlspace itself. You may see cracks in the ground, in the foundation, that show that the water has saturated during heavy periods of rain, but later dries out, leaving cracks looking like a riverbed. Sometimes in the home, you get a musty smell from wet earth under your home.
These are all issues that you have water coming into your crawlspace, through your foundation, and indications that you want to have a professional come out and take a look at your home. And oftentimes, these can be remedied just by a French drain on two sides of your home, preventing water from intruding into your crawlspace.
