Toronto homes often have wet basements, and basement waterproofing plumbers offer the ideal solution to keep your basement dry, thus protecting your investment and retaining the value of your property. Excessive moisture is the perfect breeding ground for fungus, mold and mildew, which pose serious health hazards.
During heavy rains, water seeps into micro-cracks in your home’s foundations. As the water freezes during winter, it expands, thus creating a wider separation. As the ice melts, the water seeps into your walls, ceilings and elsewhere in your home.
Weeping tiles are porous pipes used in underground drainage systems. Usually made of plastic, weeping tiles have narrow, lengthwise slits, and rocks are placed around the weeping tiles to prevent excessive soil or dirt from entering the slits. The weeping tile is located near the perimeter of the foundation, and leads to storm sewers or to sump pumps.
