A Wet Basement in Your Nashua Home is a Warning
SERVPRO Remediates the Current Flood Damage in Your Basement and Helps Prevent a Recurrence When the Next Storm Hits
Storms outside of your Nashua home can get pretty severe at times. Though you might be confident that your home has gotten relatively well guarded against the threats and risks of high winds and torrential downpours, it is rarely wholly prepared for the possibility of flooding. The most typical culprit for experiencing the effects of water pushing on the exterior of your home (even underground) is your basement.
A wet basement in your Nashua home is almost always a sign of a potential problem that has to get addressed. The longer that you allow moisture and wetness to continue in this area, the more potential risks that you are taking with both your house and your health. For the sake of your home, allowing vulnerable areas where water can penetrate the blockwork and seep into the room only gets worse the longer it persists, making these pathways broader and allowing more water to pass through every time.
While you might not initially be able to see weak points in your blockwork, our experienced SERVPRO technicians can help you to identify the source of the problem and repair smaller penetration points with hydraulic cement. More significant breaches require the more capable hands of tradesmen working in residential construction for rebuilding the blockwork and sealing up compromised areas. You can even schedule a consultation with our team to consider a solution like grading the floors away from the foundation, installing a sump pump, or even installing a permanent dehumidifier for a lasting solution to the dampness and moisture.
Perhaps one of the most substantial risks that you take by allowing a wet basement to persist is the threat it can present to your health. Moisture and dampness are breeding grounds for mold and fungal growth. Exposure to mold colonies has gotten linked with potential health effects, leading to the understanding that this issue is one that should not get permitted to occur in your home if you can help it.
Having a wet basement can signal you to very significant threats to the structural integrity of your home and the safety of your family living there. If you discover dampness in your lower level, be sure to contact SERVPRO of Nashua to help you through the restoration process. We can be reached anytime by calling (603) 889-2311.
