A breeding ground for mold and bacteria, wet carpets can present a problem for your family and pets as their health is placed at risk. Moisture of any kind in your basement can also be dangerous to the structural integrity of your home, causing wood underneath the carpet to rot and become unsturdy. If you have furniture in your basement, it is possible that the moisture that resides in your carpet has also made itself home on any other cloth furniture. This can be difficult to get rid of if you don’t tackle the source of the moisture itself. Additionally, waterproofing your basement protects your investment of a finishing a basement.
Signs of moisture issues include:
Waterproofing your basement will not only prevent moisture from damaging your home, it will also prevent the presence of bugs that are attracted to areas of high humidity, such as spiders, termites, and more. You will see improved health conditions for you and your family as the air quality within your home will be less dense and carry less bacteria or mold spores throughout your ventilation system. Waterproofing can also help reduce your energy costs, as doing so prevents warm air from escaping during the winter and building up during the summer.
Perhaps most attractive of all: waterproofing your basement can actually increase the overall value of your home. Call Michigan Basements today to learn more about our personalized basement finishing plans and our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
