Waterproofing your basement is a good idea if you are experiencing problems with dampness, mold and mildew. If you smell a strong musty smell whenever you go down into your basement, it is often an indication of a water problem. If you ignore this early warning sign, eventually, over time, it can become worse and lead to actual water in the basement.
Causes for Clogged Pipes and DrainsThere are several reasons why drains and pipes become clogged and no longer work correctly. It is important to realize that when water starts draining more slowly or occasionally backs up, it is an early indication a clog is developing. Simply ignoring the problem and hoping the clog will resolve itself is never a good idea.
