Water destroys your belongings, encourages mold, damages your house, and reduces your ability to sell your home.
Water in your basement is a sign that your foundation walls and/or floor are no longer able to keep water out. This is a problem that will not get better. And the result of ignoring the problem will be a much more expensive problem later, when your foundation fails even more.
There is one thing that goes hand in hand with a wet basement. You can’t avoid it. You can’t hide it. You can’t even pretend it isn’t there. It’s that smell in your basement, when it’s wet.
There can be many different types of smells in a basement, but the worst is that damp, dank, musty, mildew smell that comes from damp walls or floor. Everything begins to take on this odor… clothes, furniture, blankets, even your furnace filter. That smell is your basement trying to tell you that something is wrong and needs to be fixed.
Cracks are serious. They are a signal that your basement foundation is under a lot of destructive stress. They are a reaction to something happening on the other side of your wall or floor. Ignoring them is like ignoring a fire alarm.
The most important thing to remember with basement cracks is that it’s not the crack that needs to be fixed… it’s the cause of the crack that must be fixed.
Yes, it looks really scary. Yes, it looks a lot like some alien mold growing on your basement walls. But it’s really quite tame. However, it is a sign that something bad is happening inside your walls.
It’s called “efflorescence.” And it’s just a sign that your walls are being destroyed by acidic water in your walls. We know how to fix it.
