Basement Leak in Chicagoland
Does your basement get any small water leaks or seepage from time to time when it rains? If so, don't put off getting it repaired any longer! Did you know that a basement leak, even though it may seem small and insignificant, can actually cause major damage and destruction to your basement walls, floor, and can even lead to health problems for your family? It's the truth! Basement moisture has been known to cause a variety of problems throughout the entire home, so it's not just limited to your basement!
In fact, a damp, humid or wet basement has been known to trigger:
- Hazardous mold and bacteria growth – this can definitely ruin the indoor air quality in your upstairs living area (50% of the air we breathe comes from the lower level of the home).
- Destruction to anything you have stored here – including irreplaceable photo albums, clothes, family heirlooms, antiques, sports gear, holiday decorations, and so on.
- Any finished areas will eventually have to be removed or refinished once the water damages the basement walls, flooring and furniture.
- Damage to wooden support beams and floor joists that work hard to hold up the weight of your family's home.
The longer you choose to ignore the basement leak, the worse it's going to get. It may seem like a small issue now, but water is erosive and will cause any seepage to get worse with time.
