Too often, people associate the basement with being a dark, damp place, at least if it is not specially designed to be a hub for socializing, working out, or playing video games.
The truth is that a healthy basement should be dry no matter how you choose to use that space. Unfortunately, because basements exist below ground, water often finds its way into them. Add in the perfect dose of humidity, and you have the ideal home for mold and mildew.
Water damage does not have to be extensive to be costly and unhealthy to your family. Even small water issues can spell trouble.
At Bluebird Foundation Repair & Waterproofing, we want to help you with these problems before they grow and become more costly. Still not convinced? Here’s what to know about water damage:
Advantages of Basement Waterproofing
Mold and mildew prevention is just one perk of getting your basement professionally waterproofed. You can also enjoy the following benefits:
- Improve Air Quality – When mold and mildew are absent, it is much easier to enjoy nice, clean, fresh air in your home. This is especially important for people who have allergies or asthma. Not to mention, mold can cause other illnesses as well.
- Increase the Value of Your Home – Every prospective homeowner’s dream is a house that they and their family can move into without much fuss. A waterproofed basement offers this option. Not to mention, water damage in and of itself can greatly reduce the value of a home.
- Remodeling Made Easy – If you are planning to transform your basement into a special place to unwind, you should probably take care of waterproofing first. Waterproofing first ensures that you won’t have to move around furniture or risk ruining a perfect remodeling job. Also, a basement that is not waterproofed is at a much higher risk for damage. Who would want their brand new game room or private gym flooded before they even get to enjoy it fully?
- Keep Insurance Costs Down – Even if you have good homeowner’s insurance, water damage is far from cheap; you will pay in the long run. That’s because water damage claims raise insurance rates. You can keep your insurance rates at a manageable level by waterproofing your basement now.
