B-Dry is a fifty-five year old company that provides water-proofing, foundation repair, and indoor air quality services. It is an industry leader and has served more than 350,000 customers since its inception. B-Dry expects basement water-proofing demands to rise this summer on account of the increased humidity as well as the stormy start to the summer – with hurricane season also starting to approach in the coming weeks.
The humid climate is also a perfect catalyst for the growth of mold. If not tackled, mold spores can spread throughout the house, causing allergic reactions in people. Most families want to make the most of summer time and hence spend a lot of time in the outdoors. Unfortunately, many neglect their homes, especially the basement which is not an often visited place in some homes. When humid air enters the cold basement, it tends to condensate on exposed surfaces. Wood in the structure can also weaken as a result of mold. B-Dry recommends water-proofing as a permanent fix for the potential problem.
When a structure is built at or below the ground level, it is best to waterproof the basement. It does not have to rain for a basement to become humid or leaky. Hydrostatic pressure is another major reason why a basement becomes humid in summer. Hydrostatic pressure develops due to the effect of gravitation force on water. Water in the soil around the home exerts a pressure on the foundation walls and the floor. If there are cracks or if the walls are porous, water will enter the basement causing it to become wet. Water may even drizzle down from the walls, and this is called water bleeding.
Water proofing the basement brings many advantages such as an increase in property value, the foundation becomes structurally sound, a healthier environment is created, the basement keeps warm during the cold months, and finally there is an increase in living space without the fear of water damage.
B-Dry offers free basement inspections to find the extent of the damage and advise on how to solve the problem. The average water-proofing job is completed in a day or two, depending on the needs. B-Dry is also offering its clients a financing option if they are short of finance or do not want to pay the entire amount for the repairs at one go. B-Dry offers a life-of-the-structure water-proofing warranty, which is another good reason to engage its services.
B-Dry undertakes water-proofing, foundation repair, and indoor air quality monitoring services for homes and offices across the US. The company has served nearly half a million customers since 1958 and offers a lifetime warranty on its water-proofing services. Find out more at http://www.bdry.com today.
