Waterproof Your Basement with Matvey Foundation Repair
When water makes its way into your basement, typically through cracks in your home’s foundation, your home’s structural integrity is at risk. Water can wear away at your foundation and lead to significant damage to your home. However, with proper waterproofing, you can protect your foundation and your home at the same time.
With Matvey Foundation Repair, we can install a SafeBasement waterproofing system that will prevent water from getting in and extend the lifespan of your home.
Preventing Mold Growth
With a proper waterproofing system in place, there is no need to worry about standing water in your basement. When pools of standing water form, mold growth tends to follow, releasing plumes of mold spores into the air to circulate throughout your home.
Mold like this can lead to several respiratory issues and other health problems that are simply best avoided. These health issues can include headaches, fevers, and even flu-like symptoms. In worse cases, standing water can lead to black mold growth in your basement, which is significantly more dangerous.
Protecting Your Belongings from Water Damage
Likely, your basement is not empty. More often than not, basements are full of things: family heirlooms, old equipment, books, clothes, old TVs, photos, and even older gaming consoles. Some of these belongings can be expensive or even priceless. If your basement is vulnerable to water leaks, everything contained in your basement is at risk.
Think about the value of everything you have in your basement and ask yourself if you’re willing to give it all up to water damage. If your basement is not properly waterproof, it can happen to you. Moisture issues in basements can creep up on you, getting worse with time. If you notice any leaks or standing water, call Matvey Foundation Repair. We’ll keep you protected.
