It’s a cold winter and the last thing you need is a wet basement. When you have water in your basement, you cannot enjoy the additional square footage it provides for things like a home office, entertainment room, exercise/rec room or just plain old basement storage area.
Why should I worry about having a wet basement?
A wet basement can bring on mold and mildew problems, dank odors and in some cases structural deterioration. All of which can truly devalue your home.
Also, mold and mildew almost always cause or contribute to poor and unhealthy indoor air quality (IAQ). The spores that are released by these elements can increase the risk of your family experiencing respiratory problems. Nothing to fool around with.
How can I get to the heart of my wet basement problem?
Primarily wet basement problems originate from the home foundation, the cove area (where the floor meets the wall). The falling rain is absorbed by the ground and ends up creating “hydrostatic pressure” (the pressure that water exudes against the outside of your foundation wall). Given time, the pressure always wins and when it does your basement floods!
You can better protect your home from basement water leakage by hiring a professional basement-waterproofing contractor to inspect and/or waterproof your basement. Only a trained waterproofing expert is qualified enough too properly and safely diagnose and fix your basement water problem. This should be done before structural damage sets in and jeopardizes your foundations integrity.
Other areas of water concern are stairwells, window wells, fireplaces, pipes and wires that go through your walls and floor drains that can actually back up into your home if overwhelmed by rainfall.
