Have fun with the staircase, it doesnt have to just be something that you ignore as you enter a room, but it can be what draws you to want to go there in the first place! Windows Not just in the basement, but throughout the whole home; windows seem to be forgotten. Sure, curtains, and window stickies are popular, but replacing and updating windows tend to be the homeowners last resort. Maybe they arent fun enough for you If thats the case, then have some fun! Windows can be a beautiful addition to your basement, even though most basements dont have too many windows; they do tend to have one. If that window has been around since the dark ages, odds are your energy bill could probably go down if you just replaced your window. Some older windows are no longer in good condition so air escapes when you want it to stay in the room.
Before selling the home If youre looking to sell your home, a wet basement can be a deal breaker. Home buyers are not looking to purchase someone elses problem, and if they find out that the basement floods, they will often back out of the deal. Home inspectors are trained to find the signs of wet basements, and they will make finding these signs a top priority. In fact, 10% of the homes market value is lost with a wet basement. And because buyers will be reluctant to buy the home even at a discount, it will take much longer to sell it. In the end, fixing the basement properly with a sump pump and perimeter waterproofing system is a fast process- with a quality basement waterproofing contractor completing the job in 1-3 days- and it restores a great deal of value to your home.
2. Humid basement air creates a reliable environment for mold growth. If you allow that moisture to remain, theres nothing stopping mold from collecting on any and all organic surfaces in your basement, including drywall, carpet, and hardwood floors. 3. If your basement has a musty smell, that would be from the airborne fecal material from dust mites and mold spores in your basement air. Because this air travels upwards in your house (like in a chimney), these airborne materials will rise through your house and enter your lungs when you breathe. This has been known to create and intensify a variety of breathing related ailments. 4. A leaking basement is not a reliable storage space. Any valuables you have there will be vulnerable to the flooding conditions.
