waterproofed basement in Washington DC

No one is ever excited to deal with a wet or damp basement, which is why NV Waterproofing & Foundation Repair offers basement waterproofing services you can rely on. We have the experience that dates back to 1986, and we are proud to continue providing the highest quality of services possible to our customers. Our technicians have solved a range of wet basement issues with comprehensive exterior waterproofing and interior water management systems.

If you find that you’re experiencing any of the five signs below, then you may need professional basement waterproofing. 

1. Pungent Odors

Strong unpleasant smells can begin to become more noticeable in your basement when there’s either one or a range of issues present: leaks, a dried-up sewer drain, mildew, or mold growth. All can cause serious health issues, such as allergies and asthma, and home damage. 

2. Leaks and Standing Water/Wet Areas

Rotting wood, damp and humid air, and bad odors are just a few of the signs that a leak has occurred in your basement. You may also get standing water or wet areas in your basement due to the presence of moist, warm air, which makes contact with the cooler foundation walls or uninsulated pipes. 

3. Damp/Discolored Walls

Your basement walls may be damp and discolored because there is an excessive amount of water in the area or there’s warm air present on cold walls. Other reasons might be related to indoor and outdoor problems such as insufficient grading, blocked gutters and downspouts, foundation cracks, humid air, and much more. 

4. Peeling, Bubbling, or Cracking Paint/Wallpaper

High humidity levels in your home can result in not just mold growth but the peeling of your basement wall paint. Paint sealers are able to absorb excess moisture in the air, which often leads to peeling and bubbling painted walls. 

Sometimes when wet painted basement walls or wallpaper dries out, it will crack which is another clear indication that your basement may need efficient waterproofing.
