To Prepare Is Better Than To Repair
So you’ve found unwanted water in your basement, what can you do now? This water can lead to unwanted and toxic mold growth, property damage, and a big hassle for homeowners, but it can all be avoided when preparations are taken to make sure that repairs won’t be necessary. Waterproofing a basement area before a leak is found is always best, as this is the one sure way to make sure that you and your property stays safe!
Mold is a big issue when it comes to basement leaks, and this mold can lead to various health problems as well. Different type of molds will grow in different types of environments, and it may be easier than you think to come into contact with those of the toxic variety. When a basement leak is left unchecked, the moisture accumulated is an ideal breeding ground for mold, and it can take as little as 48 hours for this growth to occur. As the mold grows, it can spread from the walls to the carpet, flooring, and your property causing a much bigger problem to arise very quickly, thus leading to thousands of dollars in repairs.
Water exposure can also lead to property damage, and leaks can occur without notice. If you do not venture down to your basement area often, and your structure is left un-waterproofed, a leak can pop up without your knowledge and continue to expose your property to water. This water may start out as a small leak, and continue to grow, as it soaks your belongings and creates a perfect mold growth environment.
