Wet Basements in South Dakota, Nebraska Mean Unhealthy Living
Wet basements are not just annoying, they can cause serious damage to your possessions, your home, and its inhabitants. If you use your basement or crawlspace as a storage area, as most people do, having moisture leak in can cause water damage to your possessions that are stored there.
Your home can be damaged in a variety of ways. Having water leak in means that there is a possibility of foundation failure, which can mean wall, floor, and foundation cracks, which is most likely what let the water in in the first place. The other thing that water can mean is wood rot. If you have wood beams in your crawl space or basement, there is a possibility that water could cause it to rot, leaving your home unstable. No matter how you look at it, water is bad news for your home.
The other thing that water can mean is mold and mildew growth. If water is left to sit, sooner or later mold will begin to grow. Mold can cause a variety of health issues, and could harm the inhabitants of your home or business. Just for this reason, it is smart to waterproof your home or business, as well as find out if your basement or crawl space has foundation failure.
