Basement & cellar maintenance
Many homeowners are unaware that a basement or cellar will require a certain degree of maintenance to ensure and minimise any basement or cellar repairs and to ensure that the basement or cellar remains as a habitable part of their property. At Wise Basement Systems we believe prevention is better than cure and have compiled a list of four top tips to help you maintain your basement waterproofing systems.
- Gutters and downpipes – A simple check of gutters and downpipes to ensure that water can move freely and there is no debris blocking the flow of water or leaks that can cause increased levels of hydrostic pressure in the ground.
- Trees – Roots from trees can disrupt the water flow from your basement or cellar and you should take care to ensure tree roots are not encroaching on your property
- Sump pumps – Ensure that any sump pumps you have installed are fully working and are removing water from your basement. If your sump pump has an alarm then you should test it regularly
- Check for leaks – Check the walls and floor in your basement for leaks especially at the floor plates.
If you are in any doubt that your basement could be in danger from flooding or damp problems then request a basement and cellar survey and one of our team can guide you through any repairs you require.
