Dover, NH Basement Waterproofing Solutions

When it comes to waterproofing your basement, it is important to recognize that some water and moisture will gain access to your basement. However, setting up a system for controlling how that water gets directed will help you reduce damage to your foundation.

NH Dry Basement offers Dover several basement waterproofing solutions to help you mitigate water exposure in your home’s basement.

The Signs of Water Exposure

There are several indications that moisture is a problem in your basement. Watch for the signs of mold and mildew growth. In addition to dark stains, mold and mildew produce a strong, musty odor that grows more powerful as mold and mildew grow.

Moisture can gradually seep through the foundation walls due to hydrostatic pressure. More direct leaking will result in pooling water on your basement floor and peeling paint on the foundation walls.

How to Safely Direct Water Flow

You can mitigate water damage by controlling its flow. This starts with installing the perimeter drain system that runs alongside the interior of your foundation walls. These drains will carry water to a collection pit where a sump pump pushes the water to the ground surface outside your home.

Proper Ventilation Will Keep Your Basement Dry

Once you direct excess water outside your home, you can also take steps to dry the surface of your basement walls and floor. This involves improving ventilation with a dehumidifier. We can install a Humidex dehumidifier that will help you maintain a cool and dry basement. In addition to eliminating dampness, this system will improve the overall air quality in your basement. If you need a sump pump system in Dover, you can count on NH Dry Basements to provide you with reliable and expert installation services.
