The Hassle of Basement Flooding
A flooded basement or basement with high humidity levels can result in severe damage to appliances and other electronics that are kept in your basement. In addition to damaging electronics and other appliances, this water can cause mold and harmful bacteria to grow. This mold will slowly rot the wood in your home, which can cause your foundation to weaken. In order to protect your home, flooding in your basement should be taken care of as soon as possible. Allow a basement waterproofing professional to come over and inspect your home.
