Having Your Basement Waterproofed Before Winter
With the fall season in full swing, and winter approaching quickly around the corner, we at AA Action Waterproofing feel that there is no better time than the present to begin thinking about a basement waterproofing service. All too often, the spring and summer seasons are considered when thinking about basement floods due to the frequent and drenching rains, but the snow which comes along during the winter poses just as much, if not more, of a threat.
One of the biggest problems posed during the winter months when it comes to basement flooding is the dry-out process, which becomes significantly more difficult and costly as the outside temperatures begin to drop. When your basement experiences a flood or excess moisture, it’s important to completely dry out the area using air ventilation in order to avoid mold growth, but freezing cold air could make this a difficult venture. Also, as you open your windows and set up fans for the big dry-out, your heating system will have to work even harder to combat the cold air coming in, thus resulting in higher heating or electric costs.
The best way to avoid these situations is to have your basement waterproofed before snow melts become a problem, as this allows you to forego the dry-out process necessary when winter moisture is allowed to seep in. Also, a basement waterproofing can even improve your energy usage, as small cracks or holes allowing cold air in will be sealed just in time for the winter season.
At AA Action Waterproofing, we perform our waterproofing services to all types of homes and just in time for winter, so having a wet basement during the cold weather months is something you won’t need to worry yourself over.
