3 Reasons Why Basement Waterproofing Matters
Basement waterproofing is important because . . .
Leaks Cost Money
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that around 10 percent of all homes are wasting 90 gallons of water or more each and every day through leaks. Identifying these types of leaks is the first step when waterproofing a basement, and it can save you an extravagant amount of money over time.
Damp Air Increases Electric Bills
Damp air requires more energy to heat and cool, so when the basement has damp air from moisture, then you are paying more than you need to. Waterproofing your basement keeps the air nice and dry, which saves you in the long run.
Waterproofing Prevents Mold
The EPA also reports that mold can grow in the basement in as little as one or two days after water exposure. If you can see or smell mold, then it could already be time to call a basement contractor.
