Basement Specialist – Benefits of Basement Waterproofing

Basements are part of the home that could add to your home’s living space. As a homeowner, you will want to maintain a good livable space in the basement. However, water can ruin your basement, that is water. A wet basement or even a little water can cause some problems. 

Water Damage

Basement Specialist – Benefits of Basement Waterproofing

Water in the basement can cause problems. You may want to inspect and look for signs of water damage. Sometimes the damage is very noticeable. One of the signs of basement water damage is water stains on the walls, perhaps from previous water damage. Also, cracks on the walls or buckling walls may likely cause water damage in the future.

Another sign of a wet basement is its smell. When there is a musty smell or a particular smell, it could be coming from mould growing in your basement. Not seeing mould in your basement doesn’t mean it’s not there.

Mould Problem

There shouldn’t be mould in your basement or any part of your home. Unfortunately, it is not like you can easily notice mould growth in your basement.

Once a musty smell comes, it is a sign of mould growing there and must be found and removed. The walls may appear clean and mould-free, but it is most likely lurking on the other side of the wall. It is often seen on dry walls or other organic materials like cardboard, wood, and paper.

Mould can grow in any organic materials in a basement. The best solution you can get is to call a basement specialist to remove mould.

Benefits of Basement Waterproofing 

Waterproofing is your solution to mould growth in your basement. It will also improve the quality of air in your home. A cleaner basement helps cleanup the rest of the indoor air.

Basement waterproofing also reduces wall cracks and buckling, water buildup, hydrostatic pressure, and water damage. Plumbing and even water heater leaks can still cause a wet basement, but you can be sure that your basement won’t be permanently damaged with the proper waterproofing system. 

In addition to waterproofing, you can consider having your basement finished so you will not have to worry about your newly finished basement getting damaged by water.
