1. Why are my basement walls moist?
Having moist and soggy basement walls is a nuisance. Moisture could ruin pieces of furniture and other fixtures, not mention the foul smell it produces. The moisture on your basement walls comes from rainfall, melting snow, or worse, rising groundwater. Water makes it's way through tiny cracks and joints that are often invisible to your eyes. Also, keep in mind that most walls are made from porous materials.
2. When is it time to call a basement waterproofing company?
It is time to call expert help the moment you detect any sign of water intrusion. The problem is that water is difficult to see. You may not notice moisture spots even if you try looking for them. When you feel that your basement has become more humid than usual or you smell a musky, moldy odor, chances are your basement walls are wet. It is now a good time to call the experts to assess the problem.
3. What could happen if I wait longer?
Any problem left unsolved turns out to be a worse problem. If you won't get your basement leaks fixed right away, four things could happen: (1) your property will get damaged further, (2) you decrease your home's property value, (3) you put the health of your family at risk, and (4) you can't get sound sleep thinking that your basement is leaking.
4. Can I do some fixing myself?
Fix your own basement leaks only if you know plumbing. Otherwise, you could make matters worse. You could also consider trying DIY basement or leak repair kits, but calling professional plumbers is always the most practical and less expensive option in the long run.
5. What should I look for when choosing a basement waterproofing company?
