Common Signs That Your Basement Needs Waterproofing
Basements are known for being slightly dark and damp. However, with professional waterproofing services, you can enjoy a dry, comfortable living space. Explore these common signs of a wet basement and find out how you can receive professional waterproofing services to keep your basement dry.
Wet spots in your basement, particularly around the exterior walls, is a common sign that your basement has excess moisture. First, check to see that the water stains aren’t caused by a leaking pipe or drain line. This is another common cause of water stains and mold issues in your basement. If you don’t notice a leaking pipe, your basement may need professional waterproofing services.
Mold and Mildew Growth
Mold is another unfortunate sign of moisture in your basement. Mold and mildew growth in any area of your basement is typically caused by a damp, moist environment. Contact a professional to inspect any mold, particularly if it’s black or dark-colored. A mold specialist can not only identify the type of mold but thoroughly clean the surface and the air to prevent continued growth.
Odd smells in your basement are typically caused by mold. Damp, humid environments cause a musty smell, which can be related to mold or excess moisture. Don’t wait until this moisture starts to grow mold. Work with a professional team to remove the excess moisture and prevent further water issues. Musty odors aren’t always caused by mold, but they are a sign of a moist, humid environment that will likely encourage mold growth soon if not taken care of.
