BASEMENT WATERPROOFING: HUMIDITY
Do You Have a Humid Basement?
If your Charleston basement has started to develop a musty smell, you likely have a problem with excess moisture building up. Water intrusion doesn't just happen in the form of standing pools. It can also enter your home in small amounts over time via cracks in your foundation or the lack of a proper drainage system. When that happens, it can raise the overall humidity in the basement and in your entire home. If left unaddressed, this can result in health concerns, increased energy costs, and worsening damage.
Contact United Structural Systems if you notice high humidity levels in your basement. Our experienced, knowledgeable team will help you find the most appropriate humidity control and basement waterproofing solutions for your Charleston home.
Basement Waterproofing Services
At United Structural Systems, we have a variety of proven basement waterproofing solutions available in Charleston to tackle your excess humidity levels once and for all. However, the most appropriate solution will depend on your unique needs. To determine what your home needs, we will conduct a thorough inspection and recommend the best course of action.
Some basement waterproofing solutions offered by our Charleston team to address high humidity levels include epoxy and polyurethane injection to seal cracks and drainage systems. Exterior drains are gravel filled and help redirect water away from your home's foundation after strong rains. Interior drains tackle the moisture that seeps into your basement from the surrounding soil. They direct that excess moisture to a sump pump that safely removes the water.
After waterproofing your basement, the humidity levels may still need to be addressed. We may recommend a ventilation system or a dehumidifier. By combining waterproofing and appropriate ventilation, we provide a permanent solution to basement humidity.
