Flooded Basement Hazards
Flooded basements can present a variety of different hazards to both your home and the health of your family. In terms of the structural integrity of your home, a flooded basement can cause cracks to form and, in extreme circumstances, your walls to bow inward. This can be dangerous, especially if not repaired quickly as it can lead to the home collapsing.
In addition to structural hazards, a flooded basement can present a number of adverse health effects as well. A flooded or wet basement is the perfect environment for mold growth. Mold can then make its way through your home via air vents. This can lead to respiratory issues like asthma, plus, mold is difficult to remove so prevention is always your best bet.
Tie Rod Hole Repair
As mentioned before, one of the most common causes of basement flooding is from tie rod holes. In older homes, steel or wooden bars would be set inside cement to hold it in place while it dried. Once dry, these bars would be removed, leaving a tie rod hole. As you can imagine, this can easily allow water to seep into your basement.
StayDry® is able to repair your tie rod holes and waterproof your basement to ensure your home is dry all year round. We can even install a sump pump to help drain any water that makes its way into your home. If your basement has been significantly damaged, we can repair it and waterproof your home so it won’t happen again.
