If your Toledo basement has a problem, you’ll know it by recognizing various problem signs. Wet walls and floors, flooding, flooded stairs, efflorescence, mold, unpleasant odors and poor air quality, condensation, and elevated humidity are things to keep an eye on in your basement, as well as throughout the rest of your house. Finding and repairing them early on is important because they will not go away on their own, and fast, professional repair allows effective and affordable solutions to be installed. The best way to know what you are up against is to contact FSM for a free inspection as soon as you detect a problem.
Basements typically house plumbing, ductwork, and appliances, and these essentials can fail over time. Your Toledo basement could sustain damage from plumbing leaks and floods, faulty sump pumps, and other internal sources. However, external forces are at the heart of most causes of basement damage. These include the weather and soil. Toledo receives an average of 34 inches of rain and 31 inches of snow each year. That is a lot of water for the area’s mostly clay-based soil to handle. This soil can wash away with heavy rain and erode over time, and it expands when it is wet. As overly saturated soil keeps expanding and exerts hydrostatic pressure on your basement walls, the walls will crack and leak. Your water management and other drainage systems may be damaged and not able to handle all the rain and runoff, either.
All Toledo basements are different from one another, so each needs its own specific set of repairs. The basement waterproofing solutions we offer at FSM are fully customizable to meet your basement’s unique needs. Your home can benefit from our interior drainage, sump pumps, wall vapor barrier, dehumidifier, and anti-freeze sump pump discharge line attachments. Everything we install is made in the USA, meant to function as a complete basement waterproofing system, and backed by long-term warranties for extra protection.
Water can easily leak into your Toledo home, and it’s crucial to have the best systems to handle that water so your basement will stay dry. Otherwise, your structural supports and family’s health will be at risk. Make sure your home is protected from Toledo’s wet weather with personalized, permanent basement waterproofing solutions only available from FSM.
