BASEMENT WATERPROOFING TERMS: EFFLORESCENCE
Do you need to have basement waterproofing done to your home? You might not think so if you haven’t seen water in basement near Baltimore. However, Budget Waterproofing Inc. specializes in basement and crawlspace waterproofing and can show you some signs that prove that you should think twice about having waterproofing done today.
One surefire sign that you may need to have basement waterproofing done is efflorescence. Efflorescence is a white, powdery deposit that shows up on the surface of concrete, brick, and other masonry materials when water seeps through a wall or floor. The water will pick up salts from within these materials as it passes through them and then leave those salts on the outside of the materials once it evaporates. Budget Waterproofing Inc. can identify the presence of efflorescence and tell you more about why it could be an indication of a larger problem in your basement. When you work with us, we will do everything we can to help you take the necessary steps to prevent a flooded basement.
