BALTIMORE, MD Summer started with a bang this year with lots of rain in the Baltimore area, which has left basement waterproofing companies with more business than they expected in the poor economy. News outlets have reported that April, May and June brought a combined 19.74 inches of rain to Maryland making this period the second-wettest of its kind for greater Baltimore. The rain isn't finished, either, as hurricane season has been bringing storms up the eastern coast. Finding a professional service for basement waterproofing in Baltimore is a necessity, leaving local company Mr. Basement ( with three times more business than ever before.

When houses are built on firm soil, the fill soil dumped in around it is loose. The loose soil takes many years to settle, giving water ample time to make its way through. This water applies pressure to a foundation and can make its way into a home through wall and floor joist cracks.

Wet basements can develop rot and mold growth, which can result in allergies for a family. Water in basements can also extensively damage a building and everything in it such as valuables and other possessions. Because Baltimore is a seaport city along the Chesapeake Bay and Pataspsco River, many Baltimore residents live on waterfront property with a high water table. Add in a monthly average of 3 to 4 inches of rainfall and homeowners can be dealing with a permanent wet basement problem that needs a professional to dry it for good.
