When you think about a damp, wet basement, you probably think of a home, yet there are many commercial properties that have basements, and they can be every bit as unwelcoming if they haven’t undergone commercial waterproofing services. A waterproofing contractor can help your business recapture this extra square footage.
From epoxy crack injections for cracks in the basement walls to an interior drain tile system there are several different methods to address whatever is causing your basement to be damp or wet. Commercial property can be costly, so taking a space that you haven’t been able to use and making it suitable for storage and other uses is a wise investment. It is certainly more affordable than moving to a larger facility or expanding the one you have.
Even if you do not have an immediate need for the basement space, commercial waterproofing services are important if you want to control humidity and the potential for mold. Water damage to the foundation is another risk you could be taking by letting leaking go unresolved. In addition to commercial waterproofing, you may need foundation and structural repair, as issues with the foundation can be caused, or amplified, by excess water.
