What is water damage?

The term water damage, plainly enough, covers all of the different types of damage than can occur from prolonged exposure to moisture and water. Water can have serious, far reaching effects on your basement wall, floor or even your ceiling. The effects of water on your furniture, boxes of stored goods, books, carpet and more are pretty clear, but the ill effects don't stop there. Water vapor from leaks in your basement wall can condense on parts of your basement that may not otherwise have been effected. Condensation can cause considerable water damage to your ceiling and even the joists of your first floor in the form of crumbling drywall, rotting wood, peeling paint, buckling or bubbling flooring, rusting pipes and much, much more. A moist environment also encourages the development of mold and mildew growths as well as fungus spores which drastically reduce the air quality of your home and contribute to respiratory infections, fatigue and other health problems. Avoiding water damage is all about prevention and taking fast action if any signs or symptoms are noticed. If you notice any moisture on your basement wall, don't hesitate to give us a call!

How does water get into my basement?

Most homes are built to prevent water from seeping into their basement by waterproofing the portion of the house that's underground. Basement Wall RepairWaterproofing often includes applying tar or other sealants to the exterior of the basement wall and floor. Sometimes these initial steps are sufficient, but in rainy or humid environments the moisture barrier may breakdown over time due to constant exposure to water. There are many factors that contribute to basement leaks. If the yard of your home is inclined towards your house on any side of your home, drain off water from rain and snow will flow down your yard and pool next to your house. Dense shrubbery or tree coverage in your yard can reduce exposure to the sun, thus reducing evaporation and contributing to a waterlogged yard.
