Residential flooding is a common occurrence in many areas in Toronto and the GTA. Heavy rainstorms and melting snow can wreak havoc on your home, flooding your basement and compromising the structural integrity of your foundation. That’s where we come in. We have years of experience waterproofing homes in the GTA, preventing flooding from damaging your possessions.
Unfortunately, many people experience flooding in their home. Although it can be difficult to predict when flooding may occur, there are several signs that can suggest your home may be susceptible to flooding. If you notice these signs, you should contact a plumbing professional to help identify the root source:
Any basement that is at risk of flooding is accompanied by a damp, musty odour. It may feel very humid, and you may notice that furniture feels wet or damp.
Mould accompanies moisture, so any presence of mould is a good indication that your basement needs to be examined by a professional. Not only can mould be a serious hazard to the health of your family, but it can also be a sign of a leak in your basement.
If there are visible cracks in the walls or the floor, it means that your foundation has been compromised. While its structural integrity may remain safe, any crack allows moisture to access your home, which can be a hotbed for bacteria and mould and act as an entry point for floodwater.
Should you locate a crack in your foundation, our team of experts can help repair the damage and equip your wall with the necessary waterproofing to prevent a leak or flood. We will work with you and our contractors to fix the damage in the least invasive and most convenient way possible.
