Basement Water Damage
Have you ever wandered around your basement and stumbled upon a puddle of water? Has your basement ever flooded? Water damage is a problem that can occur in your home and has potential to cause major damage. One of the worst places you can get water damage is in the basement. When basements receive any sort of water, you might need to be worried about more than just water damage.
Water damage, big or small, always has the potential to turn into something much worse. Basements are usually the length of your home. This means that when a flood occurs, you have to worry about a TON of water. Water extraction is possible, but it will take some time to complete the entire process, especially the drying process. Without doors and windows to have open in the basement, you have to rely on fans, blowers, and trying to get as much ventilation as you can.
Basements are usually dark and dusty, both of which makes mold thrive. Adding water damage and it’s a recipe for disaster. Even though not all mold is going to harm you, it shouldn’t be sitting your basement. Mold spores can be released into the air, creating allergy-like symptoms such as itchy eyes/nose/throat, coughing, sneezing, etc. Small children, elderly, and anyone with a not-so-great immune system are prone to these symptoms. If the problem persists or is bad enough, you are put at risk for a respiratory infection. Mold damage in your basement can also cause problems with your foundation – which are very costly to fix.
