Hazards of Basement Floods
Water in your basement is no laughing matter. The water can damage your walls and anything you have stored in your basement. Tie rod holes are notorious for leaving unsightly stains on your walls down to the floor. Beyond that, the water in the cold dark space makes it easy for mold and pests to thrive.
Rotting wood is inevitable in a wet basement. Termites and carpenter ants are attracted to the meal and can eat away at wooden support structures. They can eventually compromise the structural integrity of your home. Mold has been known to cause respiratory illnesses like asthma. The spores can spread through your air vents and reach every room in the house.
Cement Basement Leaks
Cement basements often have tie rod holes because of the way they were constructed. In the past, cement was held together by wood and steel rods. After the steel rods were removed, they left small holes known as tie rod holes. These holes make it incredibly easy for water to leak into your home.
If these holes are not addressed, they can cause serious damage in your basement. They allow water to enter the basement and damage things stored in the room. Tie rod holes can crack and cause foundation issues if they get serious. The water makes the cracks spread faster so it is crucial to have them repaired before they crumble your basement walls.
