Basement leaks often lead to flooding, which in turn can lead to a host of structural and health concerns. Unfortunately, basement leaks are more common than you might expect in Michigan and can be caused by a variety of factors.
Luckily, StayDry® Waterproofing provides basement leak repair to help prevent basement flooding from happening. We have a waterproofing solution to help repair any type of leak, including tie rod hole repair and crack injection. Before you contact us, let us fill you in on the hazards a flooded basement can bring and how our waterproofing solutions will repair and help prevent these issues.
Basement Flood Hazards
A damp basement can cause a host of issues, and a flooded basement is even worse. Moist, dark areas, like a damp basement, are the perfect environment for mold growth. Not only is mold incredibly difficult to get rid of, but spores can travel through the ventilation system of your home, leading to respiratory illnesses, like asthma.
A damp or flooded basement can also cause wooden support beams and drywall to rot. Not only does this harm the structural integrity of your Michigan home, but can also become a breeding ground for termites and carpenter ants.
While a damp basement can lead to mold growth and pest infestations, a flooded basement can cause even greater damage. For example, any appliances in your basement could easily short circuit in a basement flood and lead to a fire.
