A leaky basement is a subject no one wants to deal with. Water damage that is left untreated can lead to dangerous mold growth and the damage can get more expensive the longer it is left untreated. However there is hope for the average homeowner; there are signs to look for and steps to take if your basement becomes waterlogged – before the damage gets out of hand.
There are a few things homeowners need to know when it comes to a damp downstairs: how water gets in and what to do once it’s there. Armed with this information, you will be able to tackle even the worst of the waterlogged cellars.
There are three main ways that water can enter a house: through the walls; through the floors; or through the natural seam where the floor and walls meet. The most common and serious leakages normally occur after heavy rainfalls or once snow starts to melt. If you live in a cold, wet climate, it would be your best bet to have a professional contractor come in to do a free basement waterproofing estimate, to give you an idea of the damage to your downstairs and how much it could cost to fix.
Once water gets into your basement, the damage can escalate faster than you can dry it out. Waterproofing your basement is one sure-fire way to avoid health risks and expensive repairs.
