Basement Waterproofing serving Baltimore, MD
Protect Your Property
Believe it or not, you can finish your basement. The possibilities are endless, as you can store valuable equipment there or make your dreams of creating a makeshift gym come true. But not if you don’t get your basement flooding issues under control. Excess moisture exploits every weakness in your basement and can cause substantial damage. Storm Waterproofing provides the basement waterproofing services you need to make your ambitions a reality. Our experts can keep the water out.
How Does Water Get into My House?
Water always travels the path of least resistance to enter your basement. And unless you waterproof your basement, untimely basement floods will always accompany storm season. Fortunately, our team knows how to investigate the outside of your home to get a good look at the likely entry spots. Some of the most common include:
- Pipe Leaks
- Clogged Gutters
- High-Water Table
How Water Damage Impacts Your Home
You shouldn’t take water damage lightly. It can destroy property, weaken your home’s foundation, and more. Excess moisture and humidity are more than controllable. All it takes is a team of experts to find where moisture is entering the basement and plug the leaks. Over time, water damage can:
- Ruin drywall by causing it to discolor and crumble. It also blisters and peels paint and wallpaper.
- Shift and heave tile and laminate flooring, which can require expensive renovations.
- Permanently damage nostalgic items, including family photos, papers, and fabrics, as well as electronics and bicycles stored in the basement.
Three Signs You Require Waterproofing Services
Maybe your basement floods. How do you know when it’s time to act? Many homeowners struggle with this question, but Storm Waterproofing wants to make the decision a little easier to manage. Basement waterproofing is an excellent idea for homeowners whose homes suffer from varying degrees of water damage – not just for those with severe flooding. The three easiest ways to tell are:
Dark Spots and Streaks
Both spots and streaks indicate a home in need of basement waterproofing services. If you notice them, then there is excess moisture in those areas. Take a look at the siding and foundation outside your home, as you are more likely to notice these symptoms there.
If there is standing water around your foundation after rainstorms, then that means the water doesn’t adequately run away from your home. If so, then basement waterproofing is an excellent idea because it mitigates the damage caused by poor drainage.
Humidity and Dampness
Humidity and dampness are good indicators that you have a mildew or mold problem. Storm Waterproofing handles mold remediation, in addition to basement waterproofing. Our skilled team can remove mold and prevent future outbreaks at the same time.
Prevent Mold with Basement Waterproofing Services
The consequences of failing to act on basement flooding are varied, but one of the most common is mold growth. If you’ve ever noticed a musty smell or a damp or humid atmosphere in your basement, this means your home is a potential breeding ground for mold. It thrives in dark and moist areas; two elements present in every frequently-flooded basement. Mold is one of the best reasons to be proactive and act quickly.
