If you want to protect your home and keep it safe from water damage, then professional basement waterproofing is vital. In this blog, we go into more detail about what basement waterproofing involves, the benefits, and how the Kenwood PLC can assist you. Continue reading to find out more. 

What is Basement Waterproofing?

Essentially, basement waterproofing is a process of waterproofing the basement of a residential property or building to prevent the intrusion of water into the basement area. 

It is done by using a range of techniques including installing a waterproof membrane on the exterior of the foundation wall, sealing all cracks and crevices, installing a drainage system to move water away from the foundation walls and installing sump pumps to move water away from the basement.

Basement waterproofing is vital in habitable basements where groundwater is going to build up in the soil. When in combination with hydrostatic pressure, basement waterproofing enables water ingress through the walls. If left untreated, this can result in mould, decay and other moisture-associated problems.

The Benefits of Basement Waterproofing

Waterproofing your basement is a good idea for so many different reasons. One of the biggest reasons being that it will help protect your home from water damage and mould. Water in the basement can cause a variety of problems such as structural damage, pest infestations and mould growth. 

When you get your basement waterproofed by a specialist, you can prevent these problems – keeping your home safe and dry. What’s more, waterproofing will help prevent mould growth, which can bring with it a range of health issues such as asthma and allergies. With a waterproofed basement, it will be a safer environment for everyone in your home. 

Furthermore, basement waterproofing can help prevent basement flooding. Waterproofing will ensure no cracks on your foundation that could allow seepage. As a result, you can have peace of mind that everything in your basement – furniture, belongings and more – are protected. 

Lastly, basement waterproofing can help to reduce your energy costs. As waterproofing will stop water from coming into your basement, this will reduce the amount of energy needed to maintain a comfortable temperature in your basement. Consequently, you’ll save money on energy costs and reduce the amount of moisture in the air – improving air quality.
