Many homeowners throughout Barnstable County will experience water damage to their basement during this rainy spring season. This could be due to cracks in your foundation, sump pump failures, high water tables, and more. Heavy rain or unusually high tides produced by storms can spell bad news for a lot of homeowners who regularly experience water damage. If you begin to notice water/moisture in your basement, act quickly! Water damage can easily turn into mold issues and drastically increase the cost and time of restoration. It can be difficult to decide if drying the area can be self-resolved or needs professional attention. If this is a question you find yourself asking, it is best to go with the latter. A variety of issues can arise from attempting to self-dry your home after experiencing water damage. If the moisture is not dried quickly enough, there is a large possibility that mold growth could occur. If the moisture is dried in an adequate amount of time, but a dehumidifier is not set up, mold could begin to grow as well.
