Personal Property Damage
Damage to personal belonging is one major reason why water management in your home is necessary. Most homeowners use their basement to store possessions, such as family albums, holiday decorations, and out-of-season clothes. When moisture enters your basement, it can quickly ruin anything that is not stored in a waterproof, sealed container. Leaks can come from your basement’s floors and even through leaks down the stairwell, so even items stored off the floor can be ruined. If you have renovated your basement, then expensive items – such as televisions, gaming systems, and other electronics – can be destroyed. To prevent any damage to your personal possessions, look to our water management experts for help.
Mold naturally forms in dark, damp environments, making your basement a prime target. It’s important to have your basement assessed, especially if you are already noticing mold in your basement. Mold and mildew can quickly ruin fabrics and wooden furniture. In addition to ruining your personal belongings, mold and mildew can affect those that suffer from allergies and asthma, and may even cause others to become sensitive to the mold spores. If you would like to keep your home free of mold, then you must seek out technicians that are skilled at tackling what is causing the mold. We have the crew to effectively install a custom water management system in your basement, cutting off the source of the mold.
No one wants a home that smells bad, which is why water management in your basement is so important. As mentioned above, a moist basement can cause mold and mildew to form. Once formed, mold and mildew give off distinct odors that cause your home to smell musty. Unpleasant odors are not only embarrassing when you have guests, but it is also annoying for you, as it is affecting your living environment. Musty odors can also be caused by humidity from moisture that forms during hot summer months. Humid air can make musty odors much worse. That is why it is so important to find a crew like ours, who are equipped with the best water management solutions.
Check your basement for any cracks in the floor or walls. These are typically the sources of a leaky basement. Since your home may settle over the years, cracks may form as the foundation shifts. That is why any signs of cracks mean you should consult with a water management expert.
Plumbing issues can also cause water to leak into your basement. So, it is important to make sure that your plumbing is up to shape. Have any pipes leading to and inside of your basement properly inspected and serviced. Having a plumber check your home’s pipes when any issue arises is extremely important.
If you have windows or other outer openings leading to your basement, ensure those are also properly sealed. This will prevent water from leaking into your basement. This is especially important if you live in an area that experiences periods of heavy rainfall.
Ignoring any moisture in your basement can be a big and costly mistake. Homeowners that ignore water leakage in their basement often run into more problems than just water. Both possessions stored in your basement, as well as your living environment, can be greatly affected by basement leaks.
Cracks in your basement’s walls and floor are not only a cosmetic issue, they are also signs that water leaking is imminent. Our basement crack repair services can help seal off the source of any leaks, while our sump pumps can remove any water that has managed to pass through any cracks.
Choosing the wrong water management professionals can also cause you more problems over time. That is why we are equipped with skilled technicians and innovative water management solutions to ensure that any basement leaks are fixed properly and permanently.
