It goes without saying that keeping your home safe and dry is extremely important, not just for the integrity of the home but also for the health and well-being of you, your family, and pets. While most of us do a pretty good job at this when it comes to the areas of our home where we commonly live and occupy, we tend to be a lot less discriminating when it comes to our basements. A dry basement is vital to the overall environment of the home or business, as well as the structural stability which can be compromised if enough water comes into play.
Water gets into your basement any number of ways, over the top of the foundation, through the joint where the wall and flooring meet, as well as malfunctioning plumbing systems, overflowing toilets, or even broken seals on doors and windows.
Moisture in the basement wreaks havoc on your home because, unlike other areas of the house, basements may go unoccupied for extended periods of time, allowing any leak or spill to grow and cause major damage over a span of days, weeks, even months. Moisture contributes to the premature rotting of wood and rusting of metal, which can take its toll on the support beams and other assemblies that keep your home or business standing tall. It also attracts pests like termites that can quite literally eat you out of house and home, not to mention propagating the growth of mold, mildew, and other dangerous toxins. Of course all of these have their corresponding health problems, which can become a very real danger to you, your family members, and pets.
Fortunately many of these problems can be avoided by taking the proper steps to ensure that your basement is thoroughly waterproofed with as system designed to keep the area moisture free. At PlatinumCare Foundation Repair, we are proud to offer a complete roster of basement waterproofing services designed to keep you basement construction safe and healthy. Our team of professional basement waterproofing service providers is available to assess your unique waterproofing needs and take the steps that are necessary to keep your basement free of excess moisture and dangerous humidity levels that can set the stage for all kinds of long term subsequent problems.
Why are basements so vulnerable to damage from water? Very simple. Basements are the single lowest level of any home or business. Couple that with the fact that water loves to run downhill, and 2 + 2 = a flooded basement. Any time you have excess water, it will pool up in that lowest location. In the event of severe weather or flooding, the ground can only absorb so much water. Once it has been saturated, the excess water has to go somewhere, and we are looking at that downhill path of least resistance again.
Of course there are a lot of waterproofing agents on the market, usually aimed at do-it-yourselfers, but the fact of the matter is that a full on basement waterproofing project is quite complex, and usually beyond the scope of the average handyman (or even the above average one).
