3 Ways Foundation problems spoil your home
Basic problems such as cracks, holes, leaks, molds (inside or outside the wall) are all the signs that your home can cause major problems.
The problem is that many homeowners assume that cracks in the foundation are normal. They often assume that they are just "sorted". The same leak and mold; It is often assumed that these problems are common in a basement only.
However, these problems can be serious and can lead to:
1. Health Hazards
Mold is very dangerous. If problems occur in the primer or basement walls, the water gets in. Mildew lives with water and moisture. Even a small cracking on the wall or on the floor will allow enough mold to grow and diffuse.
When spreading, mold gives toxic microscopic spores to home air. You and your family breathe in this air and the spores get into the body between the eyes, the nose, the mouth and any area that has mucous membranes. Long-term rash, sine problem, severe headache, confusion, pain and serious problems like cancer.
Fix the foundation and stop the moisture. There is no moisture or mold. Have all the forms that are already removed and improve your home air quality and family health.
2nd Collapse of the Foundation
This is a very preventable problem that unfortunately is often ignored until it is too late.
These little cracks grow fast. Finally, they are large enough (usually on the outside wall of the cellar, on the part you do not see because it's under ground) to allow significant amounts of water every time it falls or snow.
This water weakens the foundation to walls where you can no longer support the weight of your home and the walls penetrate. If that happens, you are looking for extensive, large and expensive repairs. If it can be repaired at all.
Fix problems early to avoid this problem! Reduces Domestic Value
Forms and foundations' problems are lower than domestic values than anything else. Show your home to a potential buyer and see them as a sign of water damage, base change, or any sign of mold. Why? Because these are serious problems that can be expensive if they are not repaired on time. This reduces your home value quickly.
