Key Maintenance - Tip #29

Want to Avoid a Less Considered Disaster?

 

Your Basement Window Wells (sourced - various websites)

 

Window wells are great for letting natural light into your basement and providing ventilation. They also keep soil away from your window fixtures, but they can put your basement at risk if they’re not looked after. Leaves and other debris can clog the drainage pipe, and after extended rainfall, the water pressure against your basement window will be intense.If you don’t clean the drainage, the water pressure can smash the glass and pour gallons of water inside. So, make sure you’re using a shorthanded shovel, a snake, or just your hands to pull out any blockages from the pipe.
