Maintaining your home helps to protect your families greatest investment. An unprotected and unmaintained home will slowly deteriorate, lose resale value, and could even experience structural problems. That's why it's important to routinely maintain your home to ensure that everything is running smoothly.
One of the best ways to protect the structure of your home is by waterproofing your basement. Since water can easily leak into a basement from unprotected walls, floors, and windows, it's important to hire a certified, knowledgeable basement waterproofing contractor that can help protect your home from the many pitfalls of moisture damage. These pitfalls included rot, mold, cracks, and even floods.
Wet basements can cause severe damage to a home as well as cause health-related issues. For starters, a wet, damp basement is an unusable space -- a waste of square footage. Not only do you want to avoid being down there for any extended length of time, but you probably don't want to store your belongings down there either. Wet basements are a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can cause allergies, respiratory problems, eye irritation, and fatigue in both humans and pets. And finally, a wet, unmaintained basement can eventually lead to rot, and cracks.
