SIMPLE WAYS TO KEEP BASEMENTS WARM AND DRY
Wet, damp basements could easily lead to basement flooding. Dampness can also be a result of weaknesses in the cove joint, or the point where the walls join in a corner. It is commonly caused by hydrostatic pressure which occurs after a rain or melting snow which raises the water table.
Sometimes water can enter the basement over the foundation wall, if water comes from an adjoining property which slopes down towards the building, or if the wall has been built upon the exterior and allowed water access over the foundation wall. Water can seep in through the mortar and enter the basement that way.
There can also be pipe penetrations in the walls which produce vulnerable areas for water to seep in. But whatever the problem, the basement waterproofing services hired in will be able to identify it and, if they can’t fix it themselves, will recommend service partners that can.
Always safe to consult a professional waterproofing contractor
For best results, it’s always a god idea to hire a professional basement waterproofing contractor. Moisture attacks masonry walls, which can erode the wall. Once the basement waterproofing services provider completed the basement waterproofing project, it’s essential to keep the basement as warm and dry as possible to avoid humidity.
With the use of the appropriate basement waterproofing measures, a damp, unpleasant basement can be transformed into a dry, warm space.
If you notice any of these problems, it’s time to get in touch with a waterproofing specialist soon.
