May 10, 2014

In our last post, we talked about 2 important reasons why you should get your wet basement fixed. If you aren’t convinced yet, here are 3 more great reasons!

#3:  Some Financing Options May Be Available to Canadian Homeowners

Across Canada, home improvement has taken center stage.  There has been a trend toward improving properties, and that includes turning wet basements into dry basements.  In the case of someone moving into a new house with a known wet basement issue, there could be special financing options available to fix the issue through low-interest loans.  Additionally, people who own their homes may be able to also benefit from those same types of loans which they can utilize to waterproof their basements.

#4:  Your Wet Basement May Be Affecting Your Family’s Health

It’s no secret that mould can adversely affect the health of all humans and some pets living in the property.  Mould can cause allergic reactions (sometimes fatal or requiring hospitalization), constant cold-like symptoms, headaches and, in extreme cases, irreversible lung damage.

#5:  A Dry Basement Decreases Your Stress Levels

No homeowner wants to experience stress, and knowing that your basement is wet all the time certainly increases anxiety levels.  This is especially true every time Mother Nature decides to shower the earth with rain, sleet, snow or any other form of precipitation.  It’s well known that marital arguments are considered one of the most stressful life experiences for those with partners; you can easily imagine how verbal fights can exacerbate stress levels within a household!  For the mental health of everyone in the home, it’s wise to attack a wet basement now.
