Why Should You Waterproof Your Basement?

As a homeowner, it is crucial to consider waterproofing your basement. A flooded basement can cause significant damage, and heavy rain or natural disasters can make it a possibility. Waterproofing can not only reduce the risk of flooding but also helps in reducing moisture. Moisture accumulation can lead to an uncomfortable environment and provide a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.

The consequences of water damage can be severe as it can warp wood, rot walls, and damage any items stored in the basement. Therefore, investing in waterproofing your basement is a wise decision and a great way to protect your property.

Signs That It’s Time to Waterproof Your Basement

Do you feel dampness and discomfort in your basement? Have you noticed any musty smells or stagnant water in your basement? If so, it may be time to consider waterproofing your basement. Moisture on the walls or floor of your basement could be a sign of water seepage from outside, which can create the ideal environment for mold and mildew to thrive.

If you notice a white, powdery substance on your walls or mold in your basement, it’s essential to act quickly. Ignoring these warning signs can lead to more severe issues, including significant damage to your home and your health. To prevent further damage and restore the safety and comfort of your home, contact a professional basement waterproofing company today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I Breathing in the Air that is in my Crawlspace or Basement?

As warm air rises in a home, it escapes out of the upper levels. New air then must enter to replace the air that escaped. In fact, in a well built, tight home, about half of the air escapes each hour out of the upper levels. This creates a suction at the lower levels that draws in replacement air. In older homes that aren’t sealed as well, the air exchange rate can be as high as two air exchanges per hour.

This is what engineers and building scientists refer to as the “Stack Effect” and it creates airflow in your home from the bottom to the top. What does this mean for your home? Simply put, air flow from your crawl space is drawn upwards into the first floor of your home, and then to the second floor. While it does dilute with other air in your home, building scientists still agree that up to 49.6% of the air you breathe on the first floor is air that came from your crawl space.

Therefore, whatever is in your crawl space air is in the living area of your house and could be negatively affecting your home and family. If there is high humidity in your crawl space, there is higher humidity upstairs than there would be otherwise. Even more serious, If there are mold spores in the crawl space, there are mold spores in the living area of the home.

Does Insurance Cover Foundation Repair and Waterproofing?

Your foundation typically is covered by homeowners insurance like any other part of your home. However, there are many types of foundation damage that are explicitly excluded from standard insurance policies. For your foundation repairs to be covered by your insurance company, they must be caused by an  event your nsurer accepts, such as certain water damage or hurricane like storms. One of our foundation specialists can help you determine what caused your foundation’s damage so you can make a potential claim with your insurance company.

Does Water and Moisture in my Crawlspace Really Matter?

Standing water and High humidity in your crawl space or basement areas are the leading cause for mold and bacteria growth, sagging floor framing that leads to structural issues, and even allergies and/or health issues for our homeowners. Our moisture and waterproofing solutions help you say goodbye to these harmful problems.

Permanently. It's absolutely important you have these issues evaluated by an expert as soon as possible.
