What To Do When Your Home Has A Wet Basement
Your home might not be decades old, but it may have structural concerns that could cause future problems. Any home is only as good as the contractors who built it, and this goes down to each block that was laid to construct your basement walls and foundation. Small imperfections—or the lack of having full mortar joints—can cause water to eventually penetrate from the exterior into your basement.
The trouble is, you may not even notice this happening when it first begins. The symptoms of failing waterproofing efforts and structural concerns of your foundation might only present themselves as some excess moisture in the air. This might not seem like a huge deal at first, but the problem can worsen over time, with several impending threats to you and your home.
Wetness and warmer temperatures can combine with mold spores that naturally occur in the air to form fungal growths throughout your basement level. With the health effects that mold can cause to you and your family, this possible threat requires professional mold remediation services from certified and trusted professionals, such as our technicians at SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle.
In addition, cutting off the unwelcome water source should be a priority. Contact a professional basement waterproofing company that is equipped to handle the task. They may patch holes and cracks in your foundation with durable hydraulic cement or completely encapsulate crawl spaces that were allowing excess moisture and water to reach the walls of your foundation. They can also advise you of any negative grading or improper landscaping that’s causing the infiltration of water and moisture. A sump pump or dehumidifier may also help rectify current and potential water damaging conditions.
If your basement is unexplainably wet, call our SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle team of restoration specialists. We can help dry up your basement, prevent further damage, and ensure the safety of your family.
