Since Multiserve opened its doors for business in 2012, we have quickly become known as the ones to call in the Wimbledon area whenever homeowners and businesses have a plumbing problem or project. One common issue that a plumber in Wimbledon hears about during this time of year is a wet cellar or basement. With the increase of rain showers in the spring, many in the UK find themselves at an increased risk of cellar leaks and floods. Whenever there is water in unwanted places, there are likely some serious problems.
Don’t let your wet basement put a damper on your plans. Our Multiserve professionals have put together some key pieces of advice that can save your cellar and your home.

Clean Your Gutters
Twice a year is ideal, but clearing out your gutters at least once a year during the spring will help keep your property properly drained. While you’re at it, point any spouts away from the edges of the home so that your home’s foundation won’t be put at risk.
Invest in Exterior Waterproofing
Over time, the concrete foundation of your home will become increasingly porous. This allows for cracks to develop which then act as passageways for water to enter and cause damage. Call a plumber in Wimbledon for more information on how you can proactively protect your home through exterior weatherproofing.
