Protect Your Home Against Water Damage
If water gains access into your basement, it can spell disaster for your property. Water will cause severe damages to your possession and ruin anything in its path. Water will also lead to rot and decay of structures in your home. This is especially true if there are any wooden structures in or near your basement. Wood quickly rots and weakens when exposed to water. As a result, your home can have structural damages if your basement floods. To protect yourself against this, hire our experts for our basement waterproofing service.
Stop Mold and Mildew From Forming
Mold and mildew can form when moisture gets into your home. Mold and mildew also thrive in humid and dark places. Therefore, basements are ideal breeding grounds for mold and mildew when even small amounts of water gain access. Mold and mildew can form in as little as 48 hours and once they get a hold, they can spread rapidly. Mold and mildew have a foul smell and they cause serious damages to structures and surfaces. Some varieties of mold are also toxic to humans, especially when they have lung conditions such as asthma. Preventing water from gaining access to your basement, ensures that your basement remains mold free.
Improve Your Air Quality
Basements have a major influence on the air quality in your home. If your basement is full of stale air it can have a negative affect on your property. Mold and molded form when excessive moisture is present in basements which spoils the air quality. Water damages can also leave a poor smell if not properly cleaned up. On top of this, if there are any standing pools of water they will smell poor as bacteria grows in stagnant water producing a distinct odor. Waterproofing your basement will stop these issues before they develop so your home can have excellent air quality, free from poor smells.
Save Money on Heating and Cooling Your Property
Another great advantage to waterproofing your basement is the cost effective nature if doing this. Basements that allow water to enter will increase the humidity levels in your home. High humidity in your home can make heating and cooling your property up to 15% more expensive as more energy is required for the job. As a result, paying for a basement waterproofing can save you a fortune on in the long run on your heating and cooling expenses.
