What To Do When You Discover Your Marlborough Home Has A Wet Basement
Damp and Wet Basements Can Get Remediation from SERVPRO
Your Marlborough home might not be decades old, but that does not mean that it does not have structural concerns that could threaten to cause you problems in the future. Any home is only as good as the contractors that built it, and this goes down to each block that was laid to construct your basement walls and foundation of your home. Small imperfections or the lack of having full mortar joints can allow for water to eventually penetrate through from the exterior to your basement.
The trouble is, you may not even notice this happening when it first begins. The symptoms of failing waterproofing efforts and structural concerns of your foundation might only present themselves as some excess moisture in the air of your lower levels. As the problem worsens over time, you find yourself struggling to understand your wet basement of your Marlborough home. While this might not seem like a huge deal at first, there are several impending threats that this discovery could later mean for you and your home.
Wetness and warmer temperatures can combine with mold spores that naturally occur in the air to form fungal growths throughout your basement level. With the health effects that mold can cause to you and your family, this possible threat requires professional mold remediation services from certified and trusted professionals like our technicians at SERVPRO.
Cutting off the source of the water getting into your basement must be a priority, and our SERVPRO professionals are well equipped to handle this task as well. We can patch holes and cracks in your foundation with durable hydraulic cement or completely encapsulate crawl spaces that allow excess moisture and water to reach the walls of your foundation unabated. We can advise you of negative grading or improper landscaping that can facilitate the infiltration of water and moisture. Perhaps, a sump pump or dehumidifier can help to rectify current and potential water damaging conditions.
If you have recently discovered that your basement is unexplainably wet, you should give our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team of restoration specialists a call. We can help you to dry up this level of your house and prevent further damage by cutting off the source of the intruding water. You can reach us 24/7 by just calling (978) 486-9868.
