Signs of a Waterproofing Issue
Your basement is often a casualty of moisture problems. That is why it is very important to check on it from time to time. Lack of maintenance in this part of your home can cause other problems, which could later on affect the stability and safety of your property's base. Look for the below signs to determine whether you have an issue.
It's normal for a basement to have a vibe that's distinct from the rooms above-ground, especially if you are not using it as a functional or living space. However, your basement should not stink or have any strange smells. If you notice a musty odor when you go down to your basement, you may be dealing with excessive moisture as well as mold and mildew issues.
You should be concerned when you notice watermarks on your walls, floors and carpets. It's easy to shrug these stains off and suspect spills from your washing machine or something similar as the culprit. But to be completely sure, you have to take a closer look and find out whether these water stains are caused by water intrusion.
Some chronic symptoms and illnesses can be due to an exposure to certain types of toxic molds. So, apart from treating yourself when you get sick and develop symptoms like headache, fatigue, sinus congestion, chronic cough and increased thirst, among others, make sure to check your home for mold growth as well. The presence of mold in your home can cause a number of health issues if left unresolved.
