Hazards of Basement Flooding
While a wet basement might sound like an inconvenience, the dangers and hazards it can present should not be taken lightly. A flooded basement can weaken your home’s cement foundation. In some circumstances, basement walls can begin to crack, flake, or even bow inward. Each of these issues can further harm the structural integrity of your Ann Arbor home.
In addition to structural issues, a flooded basement is the perfect environment for mold growth. Not only is mold incredibly difficult to get rid of, but it can also present a host of adverse health effects, including respiratory illnesses like asthma. In short, protecting your Ann Arbor home from basement flooding can help prevent a lot of headaches and worry in the future.
StayDry® Tie Rod Hole Repair
As mentioned before, one of the most common causes of basement flooding is from damaged tie rod holes. These holes are left when the foundation was initially laid. Metal bars would be used to hold the foundation together. Once the cement had dried, these rods were removed, leaving tie rod holes.
As you can imagine, these holes make it easy for water to enter your home which could result in the issues laid out above. Luckily, we here at StayDry® have you covered. We are able to repair damaged tie rod holes and provide additional services, like sump pump installation, to ensure this issue doesn’t arise again.
