If you believe there’s a leak in your basement it’s never a bad idea to have it taken care of even if the area is just used as a storage space. Of course, if the basement is used as a living area then it’s recommended that you take care of any water leaks before you run into thousands of dollars worth of damage and mold sets in.
Have It Repaired Before Damage Occurs
You don’t have to wait until the damage is done to waterproof your basement. You can insure yourself against water damage by having the area waterproofed at any time. Our advanced leak detection sensors and cameras can detect the source of a leak before it is visible.
Since basements are constructed beneath ground level, they’re often vulnerable to groundwater and leaks aren’t uncommon. If the basement is properly maintained and designed though, you may not suffer from water leaks. A basement could quickly deteriorate if dampness and water are present and end up penetrating the structure. Once the basement becomes wet it doesn’t take long for mold and mildew to make their presence known.
How Water Enters Your Basement
Many Brampton basements leak due to excess water pressure from the outside, which is usually the result of melting snow and ice as well as heavy rainfalls. This water, which is under pressure, finds it way through cracks and defects in the foundation. While many homes in Brampton have been built in the last 30 years, most them were not properly wrapped and waterproofed when being constructed.
The water will typically work its way through any cracks that already exist in the foundation of the home. If this occurs, it can lead to severe structural damage which will be costly to repair. If your basement has cracks in it and isn’t properly waterproofed then moisture could invade it through the floors and/or walls when least expected.
Some Brampton homes may have been constructed with their exterior walls being inadequately waterproofed. In addition, cracks can result from expansion and contraction when the outside temperature fluctuates. If a leak is detected early and it’s relatively small then it can typically be repaired from inside the home. However, if the leak is considered to be major, the best way to repair it and waterproof the basement is from the outside.
