3 Problems Resulting from a Leaky Basement

To make sure that your basement stays nice and dry, your sump pump channels water from under or outside of the basement and discharges it out and away from your home. If your sump pump fails, water can backup and flood your entire basement. Trust us, nothing will make you appreciate a waterproofed basement more than a flooded basement. There are numerous problems that can occur as the result of a leaky basement , including:

Structural Damage

Because main support beams are often exposed in the basement, it is crucial that you keep this area dry at all times. A leaky or flooded basement can cause these support beams to become waterlogged, which drastically reduces their strength. If your sump pump is backed up, contact a basement waterproofing professional as soon as possible to maintain the structural integrity of your home.

Property Damage

If you are like most homeowners, you probably use your basement as some sort of extra storage space. Unfortunately, this means that a flooded basement can damage or destroy some of your most important or valuable possessions. We can replace your sump pump fast so that you do not lose any more of your belongings.

Mold Growth

Basements are damp enough on their own, so when you add extra moisture to the mix they become breeding grounds for mold. Exposure to indoor mold may cause health symptoms ranging from minor allergic reactions to long-term ailments such as respiratory disease and even cancer. To protect yourself and your family, contact The Real Seal at the first sign of water in your basement.
