Water Proofing Your Basement
Water is a wonderful thing, its a source of life on our planet and no one can exist without it, but it can also be a destructive force. Buildings in the United States are made mostly from materials that are susceptible to water damage like wood or drywall, that’s why we build our structures in a way they would be impregnable to water, but water finds a way. Water proofing your home will prevent damage to your building or indoor air quality, simply by keeping water out.
Water proofing is needed when you have:
- Cracks in Foundation
- Unsealed Windows or Doors
- Clogged Drains
- Unsealed Center Blocks
- Gaps in Foundation
- Inoperable Sunk Pump
- Unsealed Pipe Holes
- Massive Tree Roots
Water Proofing your basement is the only way to prevent water damage from the sources listed above. In the water proofing process, different applications are used for different sources of water penetration. Not water proofing the basement will cause water to keep damaging you interior and potentially cause black mold and mildew to grow. In cases mold is present already, the home or basement will become inhabitable until an extensive mold removal process would have taken place.
