The most common cause of musty odors and mold growth in basements is water leaks or condensation that has built up over time. If you can’t find the location or cause of the odor, it is most likely hidden behind the drywall that has festered over time. Getting rid of the mold infestation without solving the dampness issue will just lead to the problem reoccurring.
You might have noticed water stains on your basement floor or wall that seemingly came out of nowhere. This is one of the most obvious indications of water damage and is often overlooked. Waterproofing basement walls and floors is the best way to remedy this issue as insects can start to invade your home if left untreated.
Cracked walls are commonly caused by bowed walls going unchecked for too long. As a result of the constant expansion and contraction of the soil, eventually, the pressure encountered by a wall becomes too much and cracks start to appear.
It’s not just your basement walls that are vulnerable to water pressure. You may also experience cracks in your floor due to soil pressure.
Do your basement walls ever seem to be glistening when you walk down there? If you do, your basement has already begun to take in more moisture than it should.
While moist walls are clearly the result of water, there’s another, less obvious sign that your walls have been exposed to water. If your walls are covered in a chalky residue, it means they’ve been wet recently and aren’t far from long-lasting issues to come.
When water evaporates off of a moist concrete wall, it leaves behind salt and other minerals on the concrete’s surface, resulting in those white streaks. If you see them, it’s time to waterproof your basement!
Choosing The Best Basement Water Proofing Solutions
Depending on the severity of the problem, some homeowners opt for a temporary fix or “DIY”, but often end up having to install a drainage system to effectively fix their basement water problem. An exterior waterproofing job typically costs much more than interior waterproofing because the job requires heavy equipment, more labor, and takes longer to complete.
If flooding is a concern where you live or you have a consistently wet basement, have one of our professionals at Absolute Construction which specializes in interior and exterior waterproofing, examine your basement and surrounding area to understand the underlying issues at hand. The waterproofing expert is trained and experienced in finding the source of a basement water problem and designing a long-term waterproofing solution.
