Water damage in the basement is the last thing you want to worry about in your home. Water damage can be both inconvenient and stressful. It can also result in high costs, foundation damage, and health issues. Listed in this blog are some telling signs that you need to take the time to waterproof your basement.
You Notice Bad Smells
In a basement, humidity from appliances takes longer to drain away, but it should not be enough to cause an odor. If you notice a lingering musty smell, you may have hidden moisture causing mold and mildew in your basement.
Water Damage In The Form Of Stains
If you notice phantom stains on your walls or floors, they could indicate a more significant problem. Watermarks are a standard indicator of water seeping through the foundation at least once before, a situation that may repeat itself in the future and cause other problems.
You Notice A Bug Infestation
Insects thrive in moisture and dark environments, making your basement an ideal breeding ground for various dark environments and an ideal breeding ground for multiple bugs. You can exterminate the bugs as a short-term solution, similar to a mold infestation, but it is best to find the source of the water damage to prevent further infestations.
