Water in your basement is no joke. It can cause homeowners a lot of worry and panic. If you have a wet basement, you know that you’re always waiting for the next big storm or running home on your lunch break from work to make sure things are okay when it’s raining. Most of the time, important documents and memories like your taxes and photo albums are stored in your basement. Can you imagine losing those to water damage? Healthy Spaces makes it possible to have a dry basement.
What to Watch For
Most of the time, damage in the basement is obvious, but the effects of your upstairs may not be. Since air flows into the upper levels of your home from the basement, it brings the humidity from the basement with it.
Why You Should Fix It
If you use your basement to store valuable items like photos and keepsakes, seasonal holiday décor, tools, and important paperwork, water and moisture will damage these important items. Also, if you are thinking about selling your home, no one will want to buy it after looking at the basement. It has been proven that buyers will discount the price of the home by 10% or more because of a wet basement.
Having a dry basement is possible if the proper systems and sump pumps are installed. When it rains, the loose soil around your home is being compacted into your walls and floor, causing water to run in. A reliable system will ease your mind.
