Creates a Healthier Living Space
If you have water in your basement it can be detrimental to your health. This is because water can cause mold to grow. Mold can take as little as 24 – 48 hours to take hold in your property. This mold can cause significant health problems to anyone who comes into contact with it. Mold can also damage walls which will be costly to have repaired. By waterproofing your basement, you will avoid this very serious health hazard and safety risk. This will leave your home a safer and cleaner place for you and your family to live.
Makes your home More Efficient
Having your basement waterproofed will make your home more efficient. This is because humidity can make your home much harder to heat up and cool down. In fact, humidity can make your home 10- 15% harder to heat up and cool down. If you waterproof your basement you will remove this humidity from the air. This will make your home easier to heat up and cool down. This will save you a lot of money on heating and electric bills. This will also reduce your effect on the eco-system as heating and electricity use fossil fuels during production.
