Save Money and Worry With Basement Waterproofing
When it comes to your home, you’re probably willing to go to great lengths to protect it and maintain its value. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. There are several steps you can take to safeguard your home from damage. One area you definitely don’t want to overlook is water damage. Water leakage can cause multiple problems, and lead to very expensive repairs. But fortunately, you can prevent many of these issues by taking a key step to head off problems before they start.
One room you don’t want to overlook is your basement. Since it’s the lowest room in the house, water naturally flows towards it. Cracks in the basement walls and foundation can let water seep in, causing mold growth and even flooding that can severely damage your home and destroy your possessions. Water damage is a particular worry right now with the polar vortex and the seemingly endless winter creating a constant cycle of freezing then thawing. Thaws can produce more water than a rainstorm, and all this water has to go somewhere. Unfortunately, that somewhere can oftentimes be your basement. However, this does not have to be the case. AA Action Waterproofing can step in and provide a range of services, including basement waterproofing that will prevent damage and preserve your home for years to come.
The advantages of basement waterproofing are numerous. They include prevention of structural damage, protecting stored possessions from harm, prevention of mold and mildew growth, and even an increase in living space. Water seepage over time can rot your drywall, and support beams, and cause instability to the rest of your home.
A flooded basement can result in the destruction of anything you’ve stored there, including irreplaceable items of sentimental value. A damp, dark basement can be a haven for mold, resulting in aggravated allergies and even potentially life-threatening conditions. Basement waterproofing can prevent all these unfortunate occurrences, and even increase your living space in your home by transforming your basement from a simple storage area to useable living space, allowing you to use your basement as a family room, game room, or even another bedroom.
