If you discover water in your basement, it may be tempting to just ignore the problem and to walk away- especially if you’ve had some bad weather and if you don’t have a finished basement. Unfortunately, ignoring the leak can be a major mistake and can make your home a breeding ground for mold, mildew and insects. Ignoring the leak can also undermine the structural foundation of your home and cause a whole host of other problems.
Because of the potential damage a leaky basement can cause, ignoring the leak is one of the key things NOT to do when you find your basement leaking. Rushing into an expensive solution is another big mistake, as is contacting a general purpose contractor or handyman who might now know how to get to the root of your problems or how to find the most cost-effective solution.
