Mississauga has a great mix of old and new homes. With that great mix comes a variety of options when deciding on a basement finishing Mississauga. This city has many old homes that already have finished basements. Done decades ago, a lot of owners will notice that a musky smell has started to appear in the basement. Unfortunately, this is likely the cause of improper insulation or poor craftsmanship. And when winter comes knocking, which it is sadly known to do here, condensation gets added to the mix and mold can start to form.
What’s worse, the mold can come as a result of many different problems. It could be backfill saturation which causes water to enter the basement due to a poorly install foundation. Surface water could also be entering the basement due to incorrect grading or drainage around the home. Plumbing issues, which are one of the leaders in homeowner insurance claims, can also cause problems. From water heaters and plumbing that leaks to burst washing machine hoses, the root of the problem can be varied, especially on older homes.
