Permanent Solution for Leaky and Wet Basements

In Toronto and GTA basement leaks are often caused by heavy rains and low lying areas because of a high water table. Water increases in the soil around the basement walls and foundation. When the soil gets oversaturated, moisture starts seeping into the basement through the walls and the ground. The problem of moisture in the basement needs a permanent solution. Otherwise, the problem will grow and become more intense. Call ROOTERWORX leaky basement repair services as soon as you notice a leakage or just moisture in the basement.

What is Foundation Leak

Basement foundation leak results when it is not properly covered with plaster. Often the wrong choice of material is the reason. The surface of the ground cracks or develops tiny holes that become an easy passage for water to surface in the basement. The Foundation leak needs proper repair to shut the holes and fill the cracks permanently. If the problem is minimal and within your control, you can repair it yourself. Just get the right combination of cement, clay, or other materials that are excellent for clogging tiny holes and cracks in the ground.

Another very effective solution for cracks and pinholes is foam spray. Foam spray is the best agent for pinhole foundation repair. Everyone chooses it because it is a reliable repair material as it expands while drying. The process of enlarging fills the cracks and holes with hardened foam fully. So, no further foundation leak happens from the same places that you have covered with the foam spray.

However, you need a professional foundation waterproofing service for repairing basement leak and it is more severe than you can handle it alone. Professional services provide you long-lasting solutions. Also, their work is more skilled which means you see a spick and span basement foundation after the completion of repair.

Tricky and Intricate Repair Work

A foundation hairline crack does not threaten your home walls. The structural integrity remains intact but water leakage can happen especially when these cracks are in the concrete cover of basement walls and foundation. Strong and high-quality construction material does not suffer from hairline cracks. The slight expansion and contraction of the earth do not crack the walls and floor of a building. So, if a wall plaster or floor concrete is weak, it easily bears a hairline crack. If you see one or more hairline cracks in your basement, do not wait to call ROOTERWORX leaky basement repair service. You may think it an insignificant repair work but it is intricate and needs professional service.

How to Remove Mold from the Walls of Your Home

Damp interiors encourage the growth of mold on the ceiling, walls, and corners of the ground. Mold growth inside the buildings is hazardous to health and damaging for the air quality. You may try to wash the mold with water and any detergent but that does not eliminate the mold. It reappears after a short while. Proper mold removal is cleaning up the entire mold growth and elimination of the mold spores from walls, ceiling, and corners. Only then the air quality is retained. Once the mold removal is professionally done, there remains no mold growth issue.

Repair Wet Basement without Delay

A wet basement is destructive to the structure of the basement and injurious to the lungs for inhabitants. If you discover that your home basement has more moisture because of the wetness, contact ROOTERWORX leaky basement repair company in Mississauga. They work in Mississauga, Toronto, and the GTA and will inspect the wet basement upon your request, and find out if it needs repair work from inside or outside. Both repair options are practical and effective in treating a wet basement.

However, in the majority of the building, interior waterproofing is more efficient and effective than doing it from the outside. The procedure from the outside is more complex and more expensive because it involves excavation, replacement of soil and utility lines, wall repair, decks, and landscaping treatment. However, external waterproofing is considered a more comprehensive solution, which at the end of the day saves more money by putting things right once and for a long time.
