Guideline to Fixing Your Basement Flooring

basement flooring

Now more than ever, people are spending time at home. And a lot of it. As the walls close in, you may be looking for avenues to maintain the sanity. Basements can be an ideal area to start. Creating usable living space in the basement can provide a multitude of benefits that last beyond this unprecedented time. However, the question of where, and how, to begin arises. Basement flooring is generally one of the biggest obstacles when it comes to remodeling the area. With these easy steps, you can be well on your way to creating a space that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.

 

 

Mold and mildew

One of the most common issues of basements is the presence of mold and mildew. Beyond the several health risks these elements pose to your family, if left untreated, it can also cause structural damage to your home. When deciding to refinish your basement, one of the first steps is to remedy any present mold and mildew. By locating the source, you can have peace of mind that future occurrences in the walls, or under the basement flooring system, will no longer occur.

 

 

Cracks and holes

Another common problem with basement flooring is that it is made from concrete. Over time, the material expands and contracts, causing unsightly cracks throughout. There are several methods available for filling concrete cracks. However, depending on the type of basement flooring you choose to remodel with, you may be able to avoid this step altogether.

 

 

Sinking or uneven floors

If your home sits on land that retains water or moisture, you may experience foundational issues. When the soil underneath the home erodes due to sitting water, your foundation is left with very little support. The best way to remedy a foundational issue is with the help of a professional. If the problem is smaller, methods of releveling your basement floor may be an option.

 

 

Humidity

Even without the presence of water entry, humidity can occur in basements leading you back to the issue of mold and mildew growth.
