Wet basements will seriously affect the rest of the home.
Stack effect is the pressure movement in the home that forces air from the soil through the basement wall and through the rest of the home. This naturally occurring movement of air will bring with it odors, moisture, humidity and sometimes even mold and radon directly from your basement or crawlspace.
A wet basements effect on the home's air quality
Excess humidity will feed mold but it also lends itself to discomfort in the rest of the home. 40% of the air you breathe on the first floor comes from the basement adding excessive humidity to that air increases your Air Conditioning costs, increases physical discomfort and can simply make the air harder to breathe. Musty odors and damp smells will travel up your basement steps that can be embarrassing and irritating. More about Air Quality
Mold and Mildew are supported by a wet basement
A wet basement provides mold one of its’ key nutrients to survive in your basement. Having a basement that has a water problem will in fact lend itself to the possibility of holding more mold colonies and other dangers. Standing water can allow bacteria to build up and cause serious amounts of long term water damage to your property and organic structures (like wooden studs, boxes, clothing, or books). More about Mold
Long-term water issues in a basement can cause structural problems over time as well. A basement leak can help make cracks and separations larger, exterior saturation can create bowing or leaning walls, hydrostatic pressure can shifting floors or a wall leak can simply peal a shim coating off your concrete basement wall. Learn more about Foundation Repair Options for wall issues.
Moisture, dampness, and condensation can all be warning signs that the amount of humidity, moisture, and liquid water are reaching levels that need to be fixed in your basement. Having a wet basement doesn’t have to happen every single rain storm, or even just “once in a while.” Floodbusters Inc.'s experience with Foundation Repair and Basement waterproofing in Baltimore Maryland and Washington DC can play on your side in helping you to design a moisture control, humidity control, or foundation repair solution that’s right for your situation.
