There are many problems that homeowners face with basements and the majority of them are the result of water. Not only can hidden moisture lead to the growth of mold, it can also cause cracks in the foundation that compromise the stability of the entire home. Although a flooded basement is an obvious problem that needs to be addressed right away, there are not always obvious signs that a basement is leaking. Basement waterproofing from CanaSeal will prevent the need for repairs later on, once the damage has been done.
Some signs that a basement has a leak include a musty odor, white chalky residue, or wet walls. Water can find its way inside from excessive rain or from leaky pipes that leak between the walls. Once a leak occurs, it can promote the growth of mold and mildew. The musty odor may be present throughout the basement and from the vents. The unpleasant odor and dangers of mold may not be the end of the problems. Once damage begins to occur to the foundation, the home will begin to decrease in value and require more extensive repairs to restore the quality.
The fact that basements are the lowest point of any home makes them especially vulnerable to water leaks. Basement waterproofing is a commonsense approach to prevent the damage that a leaky basement can lead to. Investing in the prevention of cracking walls, wood rot, mold, and other signs of damage is a lot more affordable than paying for repairs after the fact.
