While most people overlook basement waterproofing when making sure their home is ready for winter, it is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle! Whether you think it or not, water can still make its way into your home during the winter months as the snow is collecting, melting, and repeating the process well into spring.
At Global Basement Waterproofing, our family would like to ensure that your home is protected from water damage. Here, we are taking a closer look at some of the issues that excess moisture can cause.
Too much water will make appliances rust and could potentially damage any other items you may store in the basement of your home. When your basement is dry, it will be safer and hold better than a basement with a risk of flooding.
As you may already know, water acts as a magnet for things like mold. Once an area gets damp enough, mold growth can be almost inevitable. Once mold enters your household, it can cause several health issues along with both interior and exterior damage. You could also find mold hard to remove once it has made its way in and settled. With waterproofing, you can avoid water damage and further prevent mold from growing.
Poor Air Quality
With mold growth comes poor air quality. When the air you breathe is dirty or impure, it can cause you and your family several health problems. In addition, if the water coming into your home has bacteria or other contaminants, the quality of the air becomes worse.
It is a given that if your basement does not have proper waterproofing, you will have excess water everywhere. If you live somewhere that sees excessive amounts of snowfall each year (like New England,) waterproofing may be a good investment towards your home, belongings, and family.
If you get on the wrong end of a flood or excessive snowfall without the proper measures in place, chances are your basement will eventually flood. This means that you will have to deal with the aftermath and the cleanup of the water and damaged belongings and appliances. Doing this takes a lot of work and could cost a fortune. However, by taking precautions of waterproofing your home can save hundreds or thousands of dollars.
