Water is capable of ruining or even destroying a home. Even a leak can cause pipes to burst after rusting. I am going to give you a brief overview on why a proper drainage system is important.
Water can cause a huge amount of problems if its not dealt with properly. It can even lead to really foul mold growth if it seeps into wood floor or carpet or even behind walls. If it even collects outside of a property its because of drainage issues. it is important that they are regularly maintained because if overlooked the damage can be both devastating and very expensive.
The main purpose of drainage systems is to move falling water from your home without affecting the landscape negatively such as unwanted pooling. unwanted pooling can result in marshy soil and if the ground gets too saturated it can even lead to basement leaks happening quite often.
What to do
most damages will only occur if water has been standing on the property for about 2 days, so it is possible to fix your irrigation system before things get too bad but most of these issues can be avoided with an annual check up followed by any required maintenance. The main issue here is that most people wouldn't stop to think about issues such as this but being careful can save you a lot of hassle and trouble in the long run.
