Damp, Humid Basement Problems
If when you walk into your business’ or home’s basement and you notice that the air is humid and there is moisture on the floors and walls, you may need some waterproofing solutions. It may seem like a summer issue, but in reality it can be a sign of bad things happening with your foundation that need resolved. A damp and humid basement can be caused by a variety of things such as:
- Floor cracks
- Foundation cracks
- Leaky basement
All of these problems can lead to your basement having a damp, humid atmosphere. Most of these problems go hand-in-hand. If you have one, you are likely to have at least one of the others. In this case, it’s important to take a dual approach and resolve the foundation issue as well as resolving crack repair. Fix the underlying issue, and make sure no water can seep through cracks and cause other damage. Unfortunately, it’s usually not as easy as just a crack repair, though. As a home or business owner, it is wise to look for these signs of foundation failure/water damage. Because of this, it is smart to install or update your waterproofing systems.
