April showers bring May Water Damages
All the rains that we’ve been getting in Baltimore lately have probably put some water in your basement. This can spell major trouble for both finished and unfinished basements alike. Water damage can bring mold, structural damage, and other issues. So, the best thing you can do to preserve the integrity of your home during these wet months is to get waterproofing.
Benefits of Waterproofing Your Basement
When you waterproof your basement, you significantly lower the risk of serious water damage from rain. This lowers your risk of toxic mold growing in your basement. Now, there are actually more benefits to waterproofing your basement. Energy efficiency is one of them. That’s right! By covering and filling in cracks and crevices, you’ll be sealing your home more fully. This will prevent cool air from getting out during the summer months, which will make your AC unit more effective at cooling your home. Another awesome benefit of waterproofing your basement is that it can increase your home’s value. A sealed basement is going to look promising to potential buyers if you ever choose to sell. If your basement is safe and water-free, then you might actually be able to use it more effectively for storage or living space. Consider the benefits and get waterproofing!
