Water plays a vital part of life. It is crucial for cooking, cleaning and cooling ourselves down on hot summer days. Water is also critical for mold and fungi to grow. These microscopic spores thrive in dank, moist places, like crawl spaces and basements. Many people even think a damp, musty basement is acceptable, when in fact it is not. Basement water can lead to various health concerns as well as ultimately damaging the very foundation and structure of your most important investment – your home.
A basement water leak can cause significant damage to floors, walls, and valuables. Even 1-2 inches of water can lead to the growth and spread of mold in your home. As soon as you detect a basement leak or other cause for basement flooding, it’s imperative to call in the Water Seal’s experts as soon as possible.
