It’s the time of year where lawn and garden care are in full swing. After a long winter, homeowners are doing their best to make their yards look as green and lush as they can by setting up sprinklers. It’s also the right time for kids to start playing outside on warm weekends and afternoons, and what kid doesn’t love drinking from the hose on a warm summer day?

Whatever the reason that the hose was turned on if it doesn’t get turned off completely, or even at all, the water will begin to soak into the ground. If it’s close enough to the home’s foundation, it can begin to cause damage, which will get worse over time.

As the water slowly soaks into the foundation or lower structures of your home, problems can begin to grow. Because these are areas that are usually hidden from view, it’s easy to underestimate how bad the problem is until it is far too late.

Wood rot, mold, soil erosion, and cracks in the concrete are very expensive to repair if they aren’t addressed quickly. If you find signs of water damage near your home that has been caused by a running hose, don’t brush it off. Call us immediately at 919-467-1991, and we’ll send out our team of trained professionals to assess the situation, work with your insurance company, and give you a recommendation on how to proceed with repairing the damage and protecting your home from future issues.
