Waterproofing Western Cape increases the value of the building. This system prevents unwanted moisture from seeping into your walls, thereby allowing mold to grow. Mold can impact our health in a negative way. It also prevents damage caused due to water seepage which can ruin the structural integrity of the building.
If you have a wet basement, water is coming in through 1) cracks in your basement walls or floor, or 2) the pores of your concrete. The most common cause of a wet basement is water, or moisture, coming in through the pores of the concrete. Concrete pores can start off large (if the concrete was not properly mixed), or they can increase in size as the concrete becomes saturated with water, or ages. Whether your basement is wet because of cracks or pores, there is a DIY solution to turning your wet basement into a dry one.
If you have cracks in your basement - hairline or large - you want to repair them using a hydrophobic polyurethane repair kit. Hydrophobic polyurethane kits are water activated. Once they come into contact with water they instantly react and expand, filling the crack from the back to the font. You want to avoid using a hydraulic cement, or any cement-based product, because they are temporary solution. Those types of repair methods are filled with pores and the water.
