Basement Seepage Repair - Saint Louis, Missouri 63132

It is crucial to recognize basement issues with water seepage at your house at an early stage. Damp basements really are a common occurrence, and often neglected, or go unnoticed early on.

Here are a few ways to identify basement issues with water seepage, before it reaches an advanced stage:

1. Clear out everything you have stored in the basement away from the wall surfaces and corners. Switch on your flashlight, focusing on the corners. You'll be able to sport dark-looking areas- this is mildew, which is a sign of water.

2. Across the bottom of the wall, you could see what seems like ice crystals. This is efflorescence, which means that water in the bottom blocks is making the alkaline materials of the wall seep out.

3. Discoloration at the top of the wall means that the water is rising within the wall, or that something is directing it to that level.

4. Mold is another giveaway. It may be black, brown, green or yellow, and it is usually spotted in the northwest corner.

5. The surface of the wall structure may be flaking or peeling. This can be another indication of water within the concrete, stone, or brick.

A damp basement problem is more than an annoyance and can be permanently destructive. Mildew decays everything in its vicinity and can even worsen the health of a resident with breathing problems or allergy symptoms. It also makes a great habitat for harmful termites to thrive in. Worst of all, it can weaken the foundation of your property. If the problem is not immediately taken care of, there might be erosion and cracking from below. For these reasons, it is strongly suggested to try and discover basement problems of this nature before they worsen.
