Basements are by natural means prone to water issues and water damage. Basement leaks may appear for a variety of reasons, from excessive rain to melting snow to a water heater break or sewage line/drain backup. Whatever the reason, protecting against and controlling water in your basement through the help of basement waterproofing contractors is an important part of excellent home maintenance.
Because your basement is below ground and the home of your mechanicals including your water heater, it's the spot in the house almost certainly to have water challenges. Unfortunately, a leaking basement may cause larger issues in addition to damp feet and an unappealing wreck. If your basement is prone to leaks, you could experience the development of mold and mildew, which could cause respiratory issues and other medical issues. This is particularly an issue in houses with young children, with people being affected by asthma, with homes with elderly people and with houses where people already have problems with a respiratory problem or issue.
Water from your leaky basement can also be a breeding ground for bacteria, which may cause a range of other health hazards.
It is often best to check your basement walls before a problem takes place, given that as soon as mold, mildew and bacteria begin to develop, it becomes a more substantial hassle to deal with the problem than if you had simply been proactive to start with.
