Basement Waterproofing in Anniston, AL
At Don Kennedy and Sons, we want area homeowners to know how important it is to keep their basement in good shape. Regardless of whether you have finished this area, or have any intentions of remodeling the space, you need to be sure that your basement is kept dry and free of any excessive humidity problems. What a lot of homeowners don't realize is the fact that moisture here can cause a lot of problems, and not just for this space, but for the entire home.
Water can damage wood, causing it to rot, warp, buckle, and decay. This includes support beams, floor joists, staircases, banisters, and so on. This rotting wood can be attractive to unwanted critters, including: termites, roaches, spiders, snakes, rats, mice, and so on. Additionally, the moisture can lead to the development of mold, which has been known to cause a variety of serious health problems. Also see tips for cleaning your home after water damage.
