Basement Dampness Causes

Water surrounds your basement.  That is because the soil around the foundation is full of groundwater.  This hidden reservoir of water then evaporates into the basement area of your unprotected home.  Water vapor then collects in your basement where it can cause unsafe living conditions by causing mold and mildew to grow.  Your homes ventilation system can then spread this to other areas of the home.

Application of interior concrete sealers on you basement floor and walls can reduce this effect.  Ask how our penetrating sealers can reduce the amount of water vapor that gets into your basement.
