Have you ever dealt with the heartache, clean up and damage caused by a a flooded basement? Too often Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana homeowners have to part with ruined family heirlooms, photographs or childhood memories because they were stored downstairs in an unprotected area. Or every rainstorm there are homeowners who invested into finishing their basement, but didn’t waterproof the area first, that have to rip out all that dry wall, carpet and furniture because it was destroyed by water that made its way into the home.
Or maybe you’re one of the many homeowners who just deals with the water seepage or flooding every time it rains or snow starts to melt on a mild winter day. We’ve heard many clients who live with water issues say, “it not a big deal, it’s just the basement or crawl space and I never even go do there!” Even if you don’t have nicely finished basement or may not keep anything valuable downstairs, most people don’t realize that basement moisture, regardless of how much or little there is, will cause damage eventually.
In fact, a damp, humid or wet basement has been known to trigger:
Hazardous mold and bacteria growth – this will directly affect the indoor air quality in your upstairs living area (50% of the air we breathe comes from the lower level of the home).
Excess moisture will damage wooden support beams and floor joists that support the weight of your family’s home.
