With the arrival of Spring comes the inevitable rainfall that will saturate the soil and humidity in the warm environment. The last thing you want is a moldy humid basement. Mold and stagnant moisture can lead to health problems such as allergies, uncomfortable living conditions, and damaged foundation. Keep your basement dry with these waterproofing tips.
If you are not ready to put an entire basement wall system in, make sure you follow precautions to prevent trapping moisture in your basement.
If you want to waterproof your basement yourself, here is an inexpensive, simple method for waterproofing a basement. This method is ideal for newer houses. (For older homes, you may need to consider foundation services.)
If you are concerned about the integrity of your basement, you need to contact a foundation specialist immediately. The safety of your home relies on a firm foundation. The basement is your foundation. Preventing moisture build-up and decay will keep your foundation intact. For encapsulation or foundation repairs, call Atlantic Foundation. We can help you determine the cause and severity of your basement’s moisture.
