Best Basement Waterproofing Contractors in Mumbai & India
Basement waterproofing is usually done for buildings that are built at or below the ground level and it encompasses the usage of techniques & materials that prevent water from penetrating into the basement. Water in the soil causes hydrostatic pressure to be exerted underneath basement floors and walls. This hydrostatic pressure can force water in through cracks of the walls. Epoxy crack injections are typically used for structural purposes while hydrophobic or hydrophilic polyurethane injections are used to seal cracks to prevent penetration of moisture or water.
Problem / What is at stake?
To understand why we need basement waterproofing, we need to understand what causes moisture in the basement. During the process of construction of a structure, any workplace below or at ground level is prone to wetness due to the existence of soil. If groundwater or rain is not drained out away from the structure, it makes its way into the structure, firstly into the basement. This water and moisture can enter through the basement walls, foundation, and cracks if any. When condensation occurs, it can bring mold and dampness that damage the structure. There are a few ways to waterproof the basement from the interior and exterior. Water sealant coatings on the walls create water barriers and prevent condensation keeping humidity levels low. Exterior waterproofing for the basement usually is a long-drawn process compared to the interior one. Once all the soil around the foundation has been removed, a waterproof sealant can be applied to the exterior walls. This sealant is typically a polymer base, which should last for the life of the building. Ideally, this exterior waterproofing process should occur during construction.
