We live in an area commonly referred to as “sunny Southern California.” That means more days of sunlight and warmth than days full of rain and clouds. While that is great for enjoying time outside it also means that we are in an area that gets dried out regularly and rapidly–it can feel like we are almost always battling a drought. Getting rain after months of dry, hot weather can be a relief but it can also be a problem because it may put your home at risk of flooding.
When the ground has been baked for months on end by hot, dry air, it can’t always soak up large amounts of rainwater well. The end result is often the creation of floods or flash floods. While these floods aren’t exactly a regular issue, they can become a problem if one hits your area and your home has no way to combat it. If you are looking to take preventative measures against floodwater damage, we’d suggest starting with a sump pump in Corona, CA.
