There are many problems associated with water leakage into the basement of your home, and all of them carry many issues you have to be aware of before you decide to ignore them.
The structure of your home can be damaged due to the water seeping from the outside. The walls of the foundation and the integrity of the whole structure can be damaged due to water.
Mold and Mildew
Mold can damage your carpets, walls, ceiling tiles and your health. The repercussions of mold can be financially hard, and can be very damaging to your health. Keeping a dry basement is not only smart for your wallet, but it ensures a healthy living. Respiratory problems, skin irritation, sore throat and cough are some of the most common health problems associated with mold. Taking the problem seriously can ensure the health of you and your family.
If you have water sitting in the basement of your home and see those scary minor cracks in your foundation, it is very easy to ignore them. After all, you say, it is not much water and the cracks are not that big. Even if that is the case, those small cracks can become very big inconveniences for you later on. Financially, those small cracks in the foundation can become big structural damages that can cost you much more than those initial small cracks.
If you have children at home, you know the necessity of having clean air. But, if you have children at home with respiratory problems, then air quality becomes too important to ignore. Humidity and leakage in the basement can produce mold that is detrimental to the health of anyone, but especially children with respiratory issues.
