The UK is blessed with a slightly rainy outlook at the best of times which is why many people are faced with the continual battle of maintaining a dry basement. A damp or wet basement may be a common issue for those lucky enough to have access to a basement, but it doesn’t have to be a major problem.
However, although a wet basement doesn’t have to be a big concern or an inconvenience, it can lead to very serious problems to your property, your home and your health! Water ingress can result in the build up of harmful mould, immediate damage to stored items and long term, costly basement repairs to your building’s foundations. So make sure you’re ready for the UK rain and follow our tips on damp control in your basement.
