BASEMENT WATERPROOFING


 

It is important to make sure that your basement is kept dry, safe, and healthy. Doing so can help to preserve the home’s structural integrity and it can help to prevent additional problems in and around the home. Water is able to get into the basement in a variety of ways, including over the top of the foundation, through the cove joint, through leaking wall or floor cracks, through the basement window, through the cove joint (where the wall and floor meet), or the problem could be related to a plumbing issue.

Moisture here can cause a lot of expensive damage, including wood rot to support beams and floor joists. This decaying wood doesn’t just endanger the home’s structural integrity, but it can also be very attractive to unwanted pests, including termites and roaches. Furthermore, moisture in this area of the home can lead to the growth of dangerous mold or mildew. This is a fungus that can grow on walls, floors, or ceilings, and it can make the home smell very musty. Additionally, it can cause a variety of serious health problems. These issues can all be avoided by making sure that an effective waterproofing system is installed below the home to help keep it moisture-free.

In recent years, experts have learned that by sealing or encapsulating a crawl space, you can eliminate moisture, odors, gases and an opening that allows animals to nest in this space. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is among the top five health risks for individuals breathing the air that permeates from the crawl space into their living area. Knowing that up to 50% of the air in your home can come from below grade, it is important to ensure this area is dry and safe.
