Basement waterproofing solutions are designed to protect your basement against water damage. Whether your basement consistently floods during heavy rainstorms or the water infiltration is more subtle, it’s important to keep as much moisture out of your basement as possible. If not addressed, water damage can compromise the structural integrity of the property and lead to costly repairs. By letting Alabama Professional Services apply waterproofing solutions, you can help prevent any moisture from getting inside.
Does My Home Need Basement Waterproofing?
Nearly every home’s basement is susceptible to water damage – even homes with finished basements. Water infiltration can be caused by leaky sprinkler systems, poor water drainage systems, groundwater issues, heavy rains and melting snow, septic pump failure and much more. No matter the cause, most of the symptoms are the same.
All homeowners should be aware of the warning signs of a wet basement, which can include:
• Musty smells that won’t go away
• Bowed walls
• Doors and windows that are hard to open/close (swollen wood)
• Water marks on the walls
• Cracks in the walls and floors
• Peeling paint
• Mold and mildew growth
• Dry rot on wooden surfaces
• Rusty electrical appliances, fuses and metal parts
• White, chalky substance on the walls (efflorescence)
• And overflowing downspouts during heavy rain
If you notice a water leak or water seepage in your basement, chances are, it’ll happen again – especially if your home is older. That’s why it’s best to find and correct the source of the problem and to waterproof the basement in order to prevent future damage.
