I have been slowly but surely catching up this week. I am finally able to read in my paper about the flooding that occurred while I was gone to Izeafest. It is pretty scary. My own backyard had water deep enough that it went to almost my knees. All I can say is that I am so glad we paid a waterproofing company to come in and fix my basement. I know our old sump pump never would have been able to keep up either. For three days straight, we listened to it go off every 30 seconds. However, a lot of people were not as lucky as us. I know in Chicago, Evergreen Park, and several other suburbs they have had to look into a water restoration company. These companies come in help you with the water cleanup and mold removal. I know too well how stressful it can be when you watching your basement fill with water (two years ago we had it happen here). I know we were watching here this last weekend. We would have lost a lot if my basement leaked and that what companies like that are here for.
