A wet basement might seem like a small problem, but it can lead to much bigger ones. A leaking basement, or a basement that generates a lot of moisture, can attract toxic black mold or cause structural damage to your home’s foundation.

A leaky basement also runs the risk of soaking any belongings you store there, increasing the risk of black mold. Basement waterproofing can stabilize your home’s property value and provide great peace of mind. Visit our basement waterproofing page for more information.

What are the signs of a basement leak?

Leaking basements offer a few obvious indicators, like pools of water on the floor or water trickling down the walls. But there are several other ways water damage can show itself as well:

Mold Health Hazards

Excess moisture and lack of ventilation in the home can harbor toxins, allergens and also promote the growth of mold and mildew. Failure to deal with a moisture issue in your home can lead to structural damage, ruin appliances and other home goods, and make your family sick. In extreme cases, black mold poisoning can be fatal.

Symptoms of Black Mold Poisoning

Black mold spores can become airborne and a person exposed to black mold may experience flu-like symptoms, which might include:

Burning or sensitivity of the eyes

Difficulty focusing

Fatigue

Headache and fever

Nausea

Nervousness

Sore throat

Vomiting

Skin irritations

Shortness of breath

Symptoms of Black Mold Poisoning

At the first sign of a mold (musty smell, water leaks, condensation, or visible growth), contact a basement waterproofing specialist for an in-house consultation. If black mold is detected, we recommend a qualified mold removal specialist who can deal with the issue promptly and appropriately.

Addressing Mold Issues

Hiring a professional basement waterproofing contractor to repair a foundation crack or a full-blown leak is only the first step in combatting the problem—a total solution includes first eliminating the source of moisture and then cleaning the mold, which should be handled by a mold remediation specialist.

"Good Afternoon, wow work was completed just in time before the blizzard. Your folks were extremely professional and approciable. Even in the brutal cold Temps they worked nonstop. The end result exceeded my expectations. It makes the room seem larger, definitely lighter and ultimately safer for my daughter that will be sleeping in that room."
