Waterproof Your Basement Now To Avoid Expensive Repairs
Basement water damage can be a real hassle. The mess, the clean-up, the costly repairs. A consistently damp or wet basement can lead to skyrocketing humidity levels and excessive mold growth. In a sense, water is your basement’s worst enemy. If excess moisture, leaks, standing water, and other water-related issues are not promptly and adequately corrected, you could be looking at long-term damage and extensive (not to mention expensive) repairs.
There is, of course, a simple and cost effective solution to basement moisture issues. To avoid the costly repairs and incalculable inconvenience of basement moisture, leaks, flooding, and other issues, you should have your basement professionally waterproofed. If you have recently discovered cracks, however small, in the walls or floor of your basement, then the situation is critical and you should take action ASAP to protect your basement from water damage.
Basement waterproofing is not a DIY job. Nor is it a job for an inexperienced or low-quality contractor. Don’t dump money into a halfway waterproofing job that is only going to require even more money to correct. Instead, ensure that you hire a qualified and experienced waterproofing contractor from the word go. AA Action Waterproofing, for example, has been waterproofing basements in Maryland, D.C., North Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware for more than 27 years.
Any basement waterproofing project begins a lot like good old fashioned detective work. A qualified contractor will begin by investigating the source of the problem. Whether your problem is excess basement moisture, water seepage, leaks, uncontrolled humidity, improper drainage, or something else entirely, the contractor will choose a course of action based upon the source and the extent of your problem.
In some cases, the source of your basement moisture problem may be immediately evident. Do you notice a damp smell the moment you head down the basement stairs? Well, you clearly have a problem. It could be a big problem, so you should probably contact a basement waterproofing professional as soon as you head back up the stairs. Do you have standing water in your basement? Pick up the phone immediately and call a basement waterproofing contractor. It only takes mold 24 to 48 to grow like crazy when standing water is present.
Whatever your basement water problem, waterproofing is most likely the solution. From drainage issues to crazy high humidity, basement waterproofing can eliminate the problem. Don’t let your basement leak like a sieve. Don’t let uncontrolled humidity, leaks, or standing water cause your basement to become overrun with mold and mildew. Instead, trust the basement waterproofing pros at AA Action Waterproofing to repair your existing basement water problems and prevent future issues.
