Maintain moisture levels to protect foundation

Published On: Dec 28 2012 10:47:24 AM CST

One way to protect your foundation is to maintain consistent moisture levels in and around your home.

 

If your climate experiences dry periods you will need to make sure to keep the foundation moist to avoid issues with shrinking soil. You should avoid watering the foundation directly as this could create too much moisture. Instead, water the soil around the foundation.

 

Also be sure you are not making the foundation too moist. You should water the soil just enough to keep the plants and grass growing healthy.
