Our basement waterproofing services will make your basement usable again.
A wet or damp basement isn’t anyone’s idea of a pleasant place to be. If the basement in your West Des Moines, Iowa home is not completely dry, it can pose more risks to the home and your family than just hoping you never have to go down there for anything. At AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central, we offer basement waterproofing services so you won’t face moisture and humidity issues inside your home and be able to use your basement again for storage or even convert it to additional living space.
Our basement waterproofing services begin by determining the cause for your moisture and water issues. Any number of things can be the culprit, including ineffective guttering and downspouts that do not divert rainwater properly, grading issues that allow rainwater to pool against your home’s foundation, and ventilation issues from improperly installed insulation.
From there, we make recommendations to resolve the problem, such as installing a sump pump or drainage drain tile system, or bowed basement wall repair. With a variety of interior and exterior basement waterproofing services, we can make your basement a functional and useful space again while protecting your home from mold issues and other contamination that affects the indoor air quality and potentially the health of your family.
If you have any questions about our basement waterproofing services or any of our services designed to improve indoor air quality, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Contact us today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
FAQs About Basement Waterproofing Services
Whenever you are making an investment into your West Des Moines, Iowa home, it stands to reason that you want to enjoy a return on your investment. The only way to understand how basement waterproofing services would be a wise investment is to ask questions so you know what to expect. At AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central, we are always happy to address your questions and concerns. Here are a few questions we have been asked about our basement waterproofing services:
How important is it that I proceed with your recommended basement waterproofing services?
When we assess your wet basement and make a recommendation for our basement waterproofing services, we also go over the reasons why we believe you should move forward. We’ll discuss potential and probable outcomes if you delay or decline to waterproof your basement. Our goal is to protect your home not only during normal weather conditions, but also for periods of severe weather with heavy rain.
Will you be able to tell where the water is entering?
That is an important part of the process. Without knowing where the water is entering, we cannot accurately resolve the problem. The process to correct a plumbing problem is much different than that of a drainage problem, for example. It is important to note that we can always determine where the water is entering, but it isn’t always possible to know its source, particularly if it comes from somewhere beyond your property.
What are some signs that I need basement waterproofing services?
Standing water is the most obvious sign, but there are many others. For example, your dehumidifier could be running continuously, you could be experiencing mold or mildew in your home, your air conditioner could be struggling to control humidity, there could be a chalky appearance on the walls, you could notice wall cracks, or there could be a musty odor present.
