If you live in the Northeast Ohio area, you know the troubles you can have with a leaky basement. unfortunately, a leaky basement is not only troublesome for the homeowner, but it can also be dangerous to the health of your family. For instance, mold and mildew grow in damp places in the basement or where condensation accumulates. It can be a dangerous health issue for your family if mold or mildew is present in the air. Respiratory illnesses are a possibility and can become dangerous if the air in the home is contaminated.
Do you know If You Have a Leaky Basement?
There are many easy-to-spot signs for any homeowner if they have problems with water in the basement. For example:
- Water on the basement floor is a clear indication you have a water problem
- Wet basement walls at the top or bottom indicate water seepage to the basement
- Water sediment visible on the walls means you have a water problem
- Cracked or bowed walls
- High quantities of water condensation on the walls
- Mold or mildew growth
- Rust on stored items
These are problems too common in many Northeast Ohio homes, and the problems can become serious if ignored. Also, if the basement waterproofing issues you have at home are postponed till the money is not an issue, you might have to pay a lot more to fix those problems. Plus, basement waterproofing issues can become serious and expensive problems to fix if you procrastinate too much.
Where Is The Water Coming From?
There are three main ways water can get into the basement of your home.
- The exterior
- The inside of the home
- The subfloor
Water coming from the exterior of the home can be the most common. For example, after a rain shower or melting snow day, you can have wet walls or water sitting on the basement floor because of the water coming from the outdoors. That’s an easy sign to spot if you want to find out about basement waterproofing problems.
If you have wet or damp basement walls, there is water seepage happening someplace behind those walls. The seepage might be minor, but those problems never go away, they only get bigger and more expensive.
On the other hand, if you have water coming from the subfloor, or from the inside of the home, you need to contact a basement waterproofing expert to find the root of your problem.
