When your home has been hit with strong rain, then flooding isn't far behind. Afterwards, you should be aware that your surroundings and belongings are exposed to secondary damage, such as mold and mildew. While they may seem like harmless organisms, they can cause discomfort and respiratory problems if they aren't dealt with.
If you've experienced these water-related issues in your basement, then you should get some basement waterproofing done. When this is overlooked, the water problems will just get worse over time. And even if your home hasn't encountered water leaks, the indoor air quality can be affected.
A good solution to this is a sub-floor drainage system that's engineered to specifically solve your basement's water problems without any clogging from the soils under your floor.
More Than Just Water
If water-related issues aren't addressed, other problems may occur, such as health complications from mold, mildew and spores that thrive in damp environments. Meanwhile, foundation cracks and wood rot can cause an entire building's integrity and structure to fail.
Water damage isn't the sort of problem that's temporary, and it shouldn't be ignored. A series of small problems can eventually grow into bigger ones when left unresolved. Don't wait until it gets out of control—avoid the trouble early by getting your basement waterproofed.
Can I DIY?
Waterproofing isn't a project that you can do by yourself. It's the type of project that can only be done with the right knowledge, tools and products on hand. If you try to do it yourself, you could potentially cause an even bigger problem and end up having to pay for both waterproofing and repairs.
It's much better to rely on the service of experienced professionals, who have been waterproofing basements and crawl spaces for many years.
And out of all those professionals, there's no one who can do the job better than Ram Jack.
