Dealing With Water Damage | Hartford, CT

Water Damage

So you walk down to your basement one day to find it wet. Wet floors, wet walls, and a lot of wetness everywhere. You are going to be sorry you didn’t invest in good basement waterproofing earlier. You are now going to be scrambling to find a way to get the damage fixed, hoping it is not too bad overall. That is a prime example of a person that reacts to a problem. What you need to actually do is be proactive to this situation and make sure you are ready for water damages by completely avoiding them in the first place. Basement waterproofing is a process that you should definitely put your house though, not only because you need your basement to be dry, but also because it prolongs the life of your structure to a great extent.

Be proactive

Being proactive about these things is a lot easier said than actually done. It is summer or spring, the climate is good, there is no actual need to do any work on theĀ basement waterproofing. Just look back to the wet months last year, were they as good? Did your basement get flooded? How about damp? Did you lose any furniture or anything stored down there? Yes? It’s time to make sure that does not happen again. Here are two solid reasons to prevent wetness from entering your basement in the wet months:

  • It costs money to repair damages, first, you have to pay to get it dry, then survey the damage, which is sure to reveal a list of replacements. You may not be able to service or repair some parts of the flooring, skirting, or furniture, they will have to be redone, how about the carpet? Yes, gone.
  • The next reason why it is better to be proactive is that you will have to live with a mostly damp if not wet basement for the rest of the wet months. All the while paying for basement waterproofing jobs that is just mostly symptomatic and temporary. Once the dry months come by, many just plain forget about it. Out of sight, out of mind sort of deal.

Water damage can take on different colors, textures, and even smells, depending on the type of location of the damage. For instance, ceiling water damage is usually easier to spot than water damage in a basement because you will see stains and discoloration on a ceiling, but may not know that a musty odor can be a sign that there is a problem on the lower level of your home. Learn these telltale signs so that you can identify an existing problem and be prepared to spot it in the future.
