As you probably know, the basement is the first casualty when it comes to flooding and moisture; this is why many people invest in basement waterproofing systems. If you haven’t invested in this system yet, Rapid-Dri shares a few reasons to waterproof your basement.
Insurers see about $3 billion in damage claims every year due to basement flooding. If you want to protect your home from water damage that can ruin your valuables, it’s best you get your basement waterproofed as soon as you can.
Prevents Cracks in Foundation
Moisture can get trapped in the surfaces of your basement’s foundation, leading to cracks that may be dangerous to your home and family and will make calling a foundation repair contractor necessary. Waterproofing your basement will minimize this moisture and help you avoid the foundation cracks that can threaten your home’s structural integrity.
Stops Mold and Mildew Growth
You should know that mold and mildew doesn’t need a flood to grow in your basement. A simple downpour or snow can cause elevated moisture levels, which can lead to a slew of health problems.
A waterproof basement is a presentable basement that can add value to your property. It’s easier to refurbish and adds protection and security. Consider calling crawl space services providers, like Rapid-Dri, to point you in the right direction.
Protect Your Home
When waterproofing your basement, your foundations can also be waterproofed. This in turn, may prevent the water from seeping into your home causing your boards to warp and/or rot. It will also make your home less prone to shifting and moving.
