The Basement Environment
We can help you correct the damp, dirty or wet environment in your basement. Most homeowners seldom think of their basement as much more than a storage area or perhaps a place for the laundry, a simple workout area or a playroom. When you’re not utilizing the basement to its fullest potential, an occasional ‘musty’ smell is often overlooked, and therein lies the problem. That musty smell is a sign that something is not right with the basement. The vast majority of cellars throughout the United States have water and moisture seeping in through concrete walls and rising up through the floor.
Moisture and water that seeps into basements provides an ideal growth medium for mold and mildew. Basements with any degree of humidity are responsible for an unpleasant odor that sometimes proves to be a health hazard for anyone with allergies or a sensitive respiratory system.
Removing the water and moisture solves the basement health problem. That’s what a Grate Products system does.
