Why should I get Basement Waterproofing done?

Basement waterproofing is an essential part of maintaining a healthy, safe, and dry home. By taking steps to prevent moisture intrusion through your foundation, you can ensure that your basement stays dry and prevent foundation damage and mold growth. Not only does it help protect against water damage, but it also allows for more usable space in your basement.

Over time, as moisture wicks into building materials or evaporates into the air (increasing the humidity), this moisture intrusion can cause much mor extensive, and costly, damage.  So addressing moisture intrusion now could be a cost-effective solution that improves your indoor environment and quality of life.

Why do I have a wet basement?

Moisture intrusion can be caused by a variety of factors.  Whether you have a wet basement or a damp basement, these are signs of moisture issues that should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent additional damages such as rot and mold growth.

A few common issues that result in a wet basement include:

  • A high water table in the soil alongside or below your home’s foundation.
  • Poor drainage or improper soil grading that causes water to collect or pool alongside your home.
  • Cracks in the foundation or basement floor (slab).
  • High humidity caused by damp materials, foundation walls, or basement floor (slab).
  • Pipe leak, drain line leak, etc.

At Disaster Blaster, we recognize that not all moisture issues are the same, which is why we tailor each Basement Waterproofing solution to the unique needs of your property.

At Disaster Blaster, we recognize that each Basement Waterproofing project is unique, which is why we offer a wide range of Basement Waterproofing services that we tailor for your unique needs.  As part of our project design process, we will evaluate the unique needs of your property, the factors contributing to the moisture intrusion issue, as well as any damage that has already occurred to design a solution for you.

What you should do if you have a Wet Basement

Do Contact your local Disaster Blaster

Disaster Blaster experts have unique training and equipment to ensure that your wet basement / damp basement issue is addressed properly.

Do Clean Up Standing Water

The longer water sites, the more damage it can do, so it’s important to mop up as much as you can.

Do Check your Basement regularly

Moisture intrusion can be affected by a number of factors, including the weather outside. So be sure to check your basement during different times of the year and under different weather conditions.

Do Monitor Humidity

When you have high humidity, moisture can condense on surfaces where mold growth can develop!

Do Look Out for Mold

Given the right environment, mold growth can begin to develop quickly. Unfortunately, a damp basement is the perfect environment for mold growth!

What you should NOT do if you have a Wet Basement

Don’t Store things in your Basement

Content items, storage boxes, and tools can all be damaged by the moisture or humidity that is getting in to your basement.

Don’t Wait

The longer you wait to have your wet basement addressed, the greater the chances for additional damage and mold growth!

Don’t Use Fans if there is Mold

Mold spores can be spread around by air movement, so it’s recommended not to use fans if mold is present.

Don’t just Seal the Walls

Sealing the walls is not a solution, as the moisture trapped in your foundation walls will still need to be addressed.

Don’t Assume Things are Dry

What ‘feels dry’ often isn’t dry. This is why Disaster Blaster Pros use specialized equipment to monitor drying on every Water Damage.
