Unfinished basements are a gateway for several issues. From water penetration that leaves an open door for mold and mildew growth to becoming the perfect home for rodents over the long winter season, there are several reasons to consider closing off this space in your home. However, renovating a basement is a costly undergoing that not everyone is prepared to go forth with, especially this year! MA basement wall installation is the perfect budget-friendly solution to solve all of these problems.
MA basement wall installation creates a barrier against porous surfaces
As mentioned, a porous surface is an open door for disaster. Your unprotected concrete basement is not only prone to cracking but also to water penetration. Even the smallest crack can leave your family open for various health concerns. Chances are, the central ventilation system for your home is located in the basement. So, consider this.
Water enters (even a small amount) and goes unnoticed. Over time, that water promotes mold and mildew growth. The spores enter the air and your ventilation system, which is then circulated throughout your home. Depending on the longevity and amount of spores allowed to circulate, you are now facing several potential respiratory concerns.
It is also a barricade against unwanted pests
Likewise, basement wall installation will also help to keep unwanted critters where they belong – outdoors, especially during the New England fall months. Now is the time when unwanted rodents such as mice, moles, chipmunks, squirrels, and even bats are preparing for the long winter ahead.
Beyond storing food, these animals are also looking for the best environment to steer clear of elements. And, if allowed, your home will quickly become the perfect location. Even the smallest hole permits an entryway for critters that will nest, repopulate, cause structural damage, and leave behind messes that, again, cause a health risk to your family.
