Basement Seepage Repair - Saint Louis, Missouri 63132

It is very important to identify basement issues with water seepage at your home at an early stage. Wet basements are a widespread occurrence, and often ignored, or go unnoticed in the beginning.

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

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

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

3. Discoloration near 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 yet another giveaway. It may be black, brown, green or yellow, and is usually seen in the northwest corner.

5. The surface of the wall structure may be flaking or cracking. This is another indication of water inside the concrete, stone, or brick.

A wet basement problem is a lot more than an aggravation and can be permanently destructive. Mold decays everything in its vicinity and may even worsen the health of a homeowner with breathing problems or allergy symptoms. It also makes a great habitat for harmful termites to prosper in. Worst of all, it can weaken the foundation of your house. If the issue is not immediately dealt with, there may be erosion and cracking from underneath. For these reasons, it is strongly advised to try and identify basement problems of this nature before they aggravate.
