It’s an odd occurrence that happens to many Oshawa homeowners: When wintertime kicks in, your ordinarily wet basement may suddenly seem dry. You don’t hear any water dripping between the walls, the amount of mould appears to not be growing and there are no pools in the corners of the space. Could it be that your leaks healed themselves? Unfortunately, no. Despite a lull in your wet basement issues, if you have experienced a wet basement and never got it permanently fixed by The Crack Doctor, you still require basement waterproofing.
Why Your Typically Wet Basement May Appear to Be Bone Dry during Winter
In Oshawa, it’s not uncommon to experience freezing temperatures for long stretches. During this time, water in the earth isn’t moving unless it’s quite deep. Plus, water on the surface of the ground freezes and remains in a frozen state – think of all that ice and snow we got last year! – so it just isn’t going anywhere.
At this time of year, it can be common for homeowners who usually have to deal with wet basement problems to begin to hope that their issues will somehow go away. But when the spring thaw comes, your wet basement problems will return.
