Not too many people think about basement waterproofing – for many of us, the phrase “out of sight, out of mind” applies to this area of our home. However, there are several benefits to having this service performed. Here are just a few of them.
Lowering Energy Costs
Basement waterproofing can help you save a significant amount of money on your energy bill each month. If you have cracks in your basement walls, sealing them will help prevent hot air from coming into your home in the summer, and cold air from entering your home in the winter. It will substantially reduce moisture and also reduce the amount of work your air conditioner has to do in order to get rid of humidity.
Making Your Home a Healthier Place
When moisture seeps into your home, that can lead to the growth of toxic mold. In fact, black mold can grow in as little as a day or two. Even minor seepage can lead to serious health risks, especially for the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. Take that risk out of the equation by having basement waterproofing performed by a professional.
Peace of Mind
No one wants to think there is a potential health hazard lurking in their basement. Basement waterproofing will not only wart off dangerous moisture, it will also help ensure this part of your home will not flood the next time a heavy thunderstorm rolls through your area.
