Protect Your Basement Before The Big Melt
Maryland average snowfalls each winter can range from a couple of inches to a couple of feet, depending on your location within the state, and when the weather starts to warm up, this means you’ll be dealing with some significant melts. Unlike a rainfall, winter snow melts can put a whole lot of moisture into the soil at one time, and if you have a basement or an older foundation, this can lead to leaks making their way into your home quite easily.
When this water makes its way into your home, you’ll then be dealing with property damage, potential mold growth, and possibly damage to the overall structure to your home, but these can be avoided. There is no wrong time to waterproof your home, and waterproofing before these big melts come through can save you a great deal of financial, physical, and emotional stress. No one enjoys cleaning up and dealing with the consequences after a big leak, and proper home waterproofing can save you from having to do so at all.
Property damage isn’t the only thing you need to worry about after a leak, and mold growth can start setting in even after you think you’ve lucked out and nothing has been ruined. Any small bit of moisture into your basement can quickly lead to mold growth, which will then require mold testing and mold remediation in order to treat. Mold can destroy your property and your health over time, and even with remediation, it’s best to avoid allowing mold to grow by keeping your basement and your home dry through waterproofing instead.
