Most basements become wet due to cracks in the foundation, which is caused by pressure on the foundation. This usually happens when the water surrounding a foundation is extremely saturated with water, and this can occur when we experience a rapid spring melt in addition to a heavy rainfall. That water pressure, called hydrostatic pressure, causes the foundation to weaken and crack. Once this happens, the water easily escapes into the home.
If you have water in your home – whether you have water pooling on the floor, lining your walls or if you just smell moist or humid air – give us a call. Water in your home can be a very serious issue, and is always one that needs to be corrected immediately. The more time the water sits in your home, the more likely that dangerous mould will grow in the moist areas. Mould can cause asthmatic symptoms, and must be treated carefully.
Our experienced team can not only correct the foundation problems that caused the issue in the first place, but also remove any mould that might have begun growing within your home. Give us a call if you spot any wet places in your basement or if you smell moist air.
