Basement waterproofing & moisture control
Basement moisture occurs for a variety of reasons, chief amongst them is when your basement is below grade. The majority of basement moisture issues develop from:
- Improper exterior grading
- Insufficient guttering or downspouts
- Lack of air circulation or conditioning
- Cooler surface temperatures when below grade
WHY SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT BASEMENT MOISTURE?
The number one concern in any musty basement is mold, mildew or biological growth. These growths, specifically mold, grow in humid basements because they require moisture to grow. Mold is a eukaryotic plant-like organism whose spores flock to moisture-rich areas of homes and businesses. While it needs moisture, it differs from plants in that it doesn't need sunlight to live and grow. This causes your damp and dark basement to become a mold haven.
Your best option to control mold growth is basement waterproofing and moisture control. Mold always needs remediation, and the only way to ensure it doesn't grow back is to resolve its source, i.e., the moisture problem. Mold is dangerous not only to the structure of your basement, and thereby your home, but also to your health. Mold growth can lead to a plethora of different health symptoms, commonly allergy-like symptoms and worsening of chronic respiratory conditions like asthma.
