Basements are used for a number of purposes: storage, a family room, an extra apartment or rental property, you name it. However much (or little) use your basement gets, it is an important part of your home’s structure. To prevent water damage and flooding, Plumbing Authority Inc. offers basement waterproofing for Vaughan properties. If your basement smells musty or dank, if it’s wet, or if it has cracks, call us for help.
Do heavy rains create damp spots or floods in your home’s lowest floor? Is there an odd smell? If so, don’t hesitate to have professionals inspect your basement before the problem worsens. Water can weaken the foundation of a house, and mould creates a health hazard for its inhabitants. With over 20 years’ experience, we know how to identify issues before they become a threat, and keep water outside where it belongs.
You may need basement waterproofing if you have:
- Leaking or moist basement walls
- Musty smells and odours
- Standing water or pooling
- Leaky basement windows
- Damp spots or a wet basement floor
- Crystal-like deposits on concrete surfaces
- Sump pump backups/issues
A wet or soggy basement can create major household issues, including rot, mildew, mould, and structural damage. Protect your investment and your family’s health. If you spot any of the above symptoms of a waterproofing problem, please contact us for a free inspection.
Up to 40% of the air breathed on the first floor of a home comes from the basement or crawl spaces. As warm air rises, it’s replaced by air from below. If you have bad basement air, it’s travelling elsewhere in the home, affecting the health of everyone indoors. Invest in your safety and keep moisture out of the basement.
If you do experience a flood, call us right away. We have emergency plumbers available to stem the damage. In a severe flooding situation (an inch or more water covering the floor), try to avoid going into the basement at all until it is pumped out. The water could contain harmful bacteria. If you do have to go down there, wear rubber-soled, waterproof boots and avoid touching any electrical devices to avoid shock or physical harm.
