Why Your Home Should Not Have a Wet Basement for Long

4/1/2019 (Permalink)

When failed construction leads to a wet basement, call SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle to extract the water and moisture.

Repair Water-Damaged Areas in Your Basement Without Delay

Do you have a wet basement? Even if you don’t know the root of the problem, you should take action now. This is a situation you’ll want to resolve right away to prevent even more serious, ongoing damage.

Often, a wet basement indicates a failure of your foundation. When your foundation begins to waiver in its duties of keeping moisture and water on the outside of your home, it rarely happens all at once. With the appropriate tools and experienced eyes, SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle's team of restoration specialists can identify and repair these vulnerable spots before further degradation occurs.

The scope of service depends on the products and procedures needed to rectify the problem. Simply applying a waterproofing formulation or even trenching along the exterior perimeter to control French drains and tiles may be in order. Hydrostatic concrete is also in our arsenal of products. Vapor barriers form an integral factor in the prevention of water seepage.
 
Additionally, your wet basement can allow for mold growth. With naturally occurring mold spores in the air, warm air and moisture are the only elements required for these spores to seat themselves on surfaces and form colonies. Resolving dampness through SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle's dehumidification and drying processes can eliminate the components that encourage fungal growth. 
 
From the moment our restoration specialists arrive at your home, we locate the source of the moisture, assess the full scope of the damage, and map out a restoration plan. While a wet basement might not seem like a huge problem, it could lead to much more disastrous results if it is not resolved immediately. Call SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle today at (302) 392-6000.
