Why Basement Waterproofing?
Of all the rooms in a property, the basement usually holds the highest level of moisture. It's also the most susceptible to water damage. A flood at ground level can easily send water seeping down into your basement walls. If your windows aren't sealed properly, they will let in surface runoff (rainwater or melted snow). Even a basement floor isn't immune from harm since the water table can sometimes overflow, leading to groundwater swelling. Drains in the basement are also prone to developing condensation. Moisture levels will also increase if your clothes dryer, for example, is located in the basement.
The Basement Waterproofing Process
The most common method for basement waterproofing is to install a concrete sealant. This is a coating we'll lay over your concrete and masonry walls, which will harden, never crack, and never allow moisture into your surfaces. First, we'll need to seal up any cracks in the walls and prepare them with special chemicals, but rest assured that our products are registered by the EPA. Afterwards, you'll be able to paint over the sealant.
Getting a Basement Dehumidifier
Another treatment option is to simply purchase a basement dehumidifier. Sometimes, we run these 24/7 when clients have a flooded basement, but our products have sensors that will tell the machine to turn on only when humidity exceeds a set percentage.
In addition, we might recommend plumbing or landscaping services as a preventative measure. For example, you can get leaky drain pipes taken care of, or you can increase the slope of the ground that's level with your basement windows.
