A wet crawlspace or basement can lead to many problems in your home. The excess moisture can cause anything from an increase in mold and pests to structural damage caused by rotting wood or crumbling concrete. The professionals at Residential ResQ will dry that space up in no time, giving you peace of mind. Mold and termites can weaken the wood in your basement causing floors to sag or walls to crack. In addition, mold and mildew from your crawlspace may cause your family to become ill, with serious health consequences possible.

Causes of Moisture Problems
There is an easy way to determine if the moisture in your basement is coming from inside or outside the walls. Tape a 12" by 12" square of aluminum foil to the inside of your basement wall. Leave it there for 24 hours and check it the next day. If the water is on the outside of the foil, you have high humidity and probably could use a quality dehumidifier, like the Santa Fe line from Earth Contact Products. If the moisture is between the foil and the wall, then the soil outside is over saturated and you may have to waterproof the exterior walls.
With the right interior waterproofing, you can have a safe, dry and usable basement. You will be able to store items without worry of water damage and your foundation and floor will remain dry and stable. Contact Residential ResQ today for a dry Connecticut home.
