FAQs About Basement Waterproofing
If your basement is showing signs of moisture intrusion, it’s important to address it with basement waterproofing. Otherwise, you may experience issues with mold, pests, and poor air quality. We understand you may have questions before we get started, so check out our FAQs below.
Why are basements so prone to moisture intrusion?
There are several reasons why basements are more prone to moisture intrusion than other rooms in your home. Primarily, the moisture can be attributed to the fact that the basement lies below the grade. Groundwater may seep in through cracks in the wall, and gravity may cause rainwater to find its way inside too. In addition, humid air outside may condense on cooler surfaces, and interior moisture sources such as clothing dryer machines can contribute as well.
