Whether in Bloomington or anywhere, the first sign that you need basement waterproofing is patches of dampness in the basement. In homes in which basements have been converted into extra rooms and living areas, excess moisture in even the smallest amounts will play havoc with finished walls and furniture. In either case, though, it’s not just drywall which people need to worry about. If water is finding a way into your basement, this can lead to the growth of mold and mildew which can be a very dangerous health hazard to you and your family.
