Hello. My name is Max. My wife and I have five children who all live at with us in our large two-story house. My wife and two of our kids suffer from severe allergies which means keeping our home as dust-free as possible. I have learned that it’s crucial to keep our heating and air conditioning units properly maintained at all times. We have a fantastic HVAC company that comes out two times a year to perform routine maintenance on our system. They have taught me what I can do on a monthly basis in order to not only help with my family’s health but also keep our system running efficiently. I would like to share some of the tips I’ve been given. I hope you find this to be useful!

Most footage drains travel underground and empty into the sewage pipes in the street or a sump pump somewhere on the property. But if your footing drain empties on the surface of your property, it can block up with soil and rocks. The water traveling through the blocked drain can back up and flood the soil around your basement.
