Waterproof Your Property Today!
If you have water damage, it is imperative to address it immediately. Not only does it compromise the structural integrity of your home, but it also may subject your family to major health risks. So, when do you need waterproofing services to mitigate water damage? Many homeowners think that major water damage like basement flooding is the only time, yet there are many signs that indicate the need for waterproofing.
Explore what to look for when it comes to waterproofing in today’s post from American Structure Inc.
Finding mold in the basement is extremely serious. From allergic reactions, sore throats, and headaches to coughing and a compromised immune system, mold exposure is detrimental to your health and wellness.
An infestation likely results from moisture. It’s not enough to kill the mold — you have to find the source of the moisture. Work with American Structure Inc. to identify the root of the overgrowth and to remedy it with waterproofing.
Watermarks are a clear indication of water damage on walls, ceilings, floors, etc. Watermarks are indicative of water leaking, seeping, or pooling in a specific area that’s causing damage to your home. If this is not completely mitigated, watermarks will continue to resurface as the water damage is left unaddressed.
Bowed walls occur when there is moisture that swells, and then shrinks when it’s dry. The wet/dry cycle results in lateral pressure that can cause the foundation to crack or shift. So if your walls are uneven and cracks begin to emerge, this is the time to hire waterproofing professionals to manage the issue before it becomes a huge, costly renovation project.
Lingering Musty Odors
Not all water damage signs are as upfront and can be subtle like musty odors. If your basement or crawl space has a smell that just doesn’t dissipate, you know that water damage is near. From leaks to poor ventilation, waterproofing should combat the issue.
