With the increase in flu’s and flu like symptoms, most homeowners who are at a loss to explain their illness might be surprised to know that a leak in basement from sewage backing up from the street sewer’s or a foundation leak could be bringing in unpleasant bacteria that needs to be professionally handled.
No homeowner should put up with a wet basement mold and getting basement waterproofing companies to give him a price might be the least expensive way of lowering medical bills caused by illnesses from basement water leaks. The cost to finish a basement should include waterproofing. It is spending money foolishly to do basement remodeling in Ohio or anywhere without waterproofing basements.
Price is important but so is your health. And health costs can be even higher than waterproofing basement walls. The facts are that most basements that have wet basement mold or a leak are creating a health hazard for the occupants of the house and that can be expensive. A wise person would never buy a house before checking to see that the foundation is sound, and no house foundation is sound if the basement leaks. Also, if your home’s foundation has sprung a leak, putting off repairs could cause even greater damage to your health as well as to your home.
