Basement Waterproofing Expertise in Des Moines
The lively city of Des Moines and neighboring counties of Dallas, Jasper, and Polk are decently removed from water. The area isn’t completely dry, though, as summers bring high humidity and frequent thunderstorms. The wet summers and bitter winters can cause freezing and thawing of your soil, putting your basement walls or foundation at risk of cracking.
Soil matters when it comes to your foundation. The topsoil and subsoil in Des Moines are made up of a silty-clay loam. Clay can mean trouble for your foundation, especially if weakened by certain backfill soil put in place during construction. When clay interacts with water, it expands, creating hydrostatic pressure that can cause your walls to bow, leak, or crumble. The moisture can also enter your basement or foundation and create cracking, mold, mildew, and condensation. You might notice a foul smell around your home or even higher energy bills. As outside air seeps in through your crumbling foundation, it can bring unhealthy particles and unstable temperatures from the outside.
You need an expert who can correct these issues at the source, so you never have to deal with the headache again.
