All homes are built upon foundations, sturdy base layers that are constructed from cinderblocks, bricks, concrete, and steel. Aside from the settling of earth, which can result in major damage to homes, as well as rendering them unsafe to live in, foundation waterproofing Baltimore is highly important. Here are a few reasons why.
Prevents Further Water Damage
Water, as you know, is necessary to life. Unfortunately, when water seeps into basements, foundations, and the earth beneath houses, serious damage can be sustained. Foundation waterproofing Baltimore, if nothing else, prevents damage that’s often tied to excessive contact with water.
Mold Is Nobody’s Friend
Mold and mildew are two common types of fungus that cause homes to smell dank and musty, not to mention cause people’s allergies to act up. The best way to deal with mold and mildew is to prevent them from spawning in the first place. Moisture is mold’s and mildew’s single best friend. Waterproofing your home’s foundation and basement effectively reduces the incidence of mold and mildew growth.
Cuts Down on Cooling and Heating Costs
The more humid a home, the more difficult it is to cool. Waterproofing reduces humidity, thereby reducing energy usage. Also, since water can cause cracks in foundations that air cold air can come through, waterproofing doubly reduces energy costs.
