When was the last time you visited your basement? Was it damp, wet, gross, and dirty, and musty smelling? Was there green and black mold growing on the walls? Is your basement just a “cave” of a dingy space? Does it flood easily each time there is a rain or snow storm?
Wet basements are a common problem in Nova Scotia no matter what they are made of. Whether yours is made up of poured concrete or stone and block, it remains a problem. The problems can occur from seepage into the basement by cracks in your floors, walls and/or faulty unsettled foundations.
Most homeowners believe that if they ignore the problem it will go away, or better yet, there are those who think they can be “Mr. Fix-It.” Yes, anyone can attempt to fix the problem, and some may even succeed (for the short term), but the problem will eventually return if it is not correctly addressed.
Look what this Halifax home owner found LURKING behind a door while doing a basement inspection ... MOLD.
