That was a trick question. The obvious answer is… any water in your basement is too much! But did you know that when it rains 1″ over an acre of land it produces approximately 27,150 gallons of water? And… although it varies based on whether it’s heavy snow or the light and fluffy stuff, a storm with as little as 3″ to 4″ of snow can produce 1″ of water. Where does all that water go? Unfortunately, here in Massachusetts, some of that water finds its way into our basements.

What do you when you find water in your basement? The same thing that you’d do if you had mold in your basement, or a damp musty smell in your basement, or foundation cracks in your basement for that matter.
