Top Benefits of Basement Waterproofing
If you have been in your home for a number of years, you have likely dealt with the normal maintenance issues that come with owning a home. These include plumbing, electrical, roofing and heating or air conditioning repairs as well as a handful of other minor repairs. One area of home maintenance that does not get near enough attention is basement waterproofing.
There are a number of benefits to having your crawlspace or basement waterproofed, which we will go into below:
Reduce Your Energy Costs
You may not realize it but you could be losing costly energy due to the fact that your basement or crawlspace is not properly waterproofed. Waterproofing your basement allows you to keep warm air inside your house in the winter and cold air out during the winter.
Prevent Moisture Issues
Aside from energy loss, a basement that is not waterproofed adequately can lead to significant moisture issues in your home. This can lead to mold, which is known to cause health problems for some individuals. Take the steps now to waterproof your basement so that you can rest easy knowing that your family is safe from the dangers that come along with mold spores. The EPA suggests that toxic mold can grow within 24-48 hours under the right conditions, so if you have been putting off basement waterproofing for some time, contact Thompson Brothers Exterminating and Waterproofing today.
Increase Square Footage & Value of Your Home
Many residents in and around South Carolina look at their basement as somewhere that they can store old Christmas decorations and maybe stash an extra appliance or two. The reality is that by waterproofing your basement you can turn it into usable square footage for a man room or a craft corner or even a wet bar that will be the envy of your neighbors. Turning your basement into usable square footage will also help improve resale value should you ever decide to sell your home.
Peace of Mind
How many times have you had to run down to the basement during a heavy rainstorm to see if the basement was leaking once again? By waterproofing your basement you can end this problem for good.
