Strong homes begin with a solid foundation. Water can be your home’s biggest enemy from the slow spread of mold to the sudden appearance of a small lake in your basement, there are many ways in which water can wreak havoc on your home. Here are five tell-tale signs your basement may be in need of waterproofing:
Damp walls and/or floors. Even if there’s no standing water or moisture stains and the rest of your basement is dry, damp spots on the wall or floor can indicate there are tiny cracks in your foundation. If left unattended, the area will weaken over time and lead to flooding during heavy rain.
Water Stains. There may be issues with sweating walls when the air is humid that you may not see at the time, the water will then evaporate and leave behind a subtle stain
Humidity. If the air in your basement feels heavy, it may have a lot of humidity. This can lead to mold and mildew
Musty Smell. If your basement has a damp or musty smell to it, there’s a moisture problem. This is usually the first sign that mold or mildew is present
Efflorescence. This is a white powdery, crusty substance that can appear on basement walls and floors. It’s caused by minerals that are left behind after water evaporates
