Baltimore County homeowners know the climate isn’t exactly dry in our area. Snow and ice in the winter and springtime showers give way to humid summertime weather. Your home’s basement or crawlspace may take on that musty odor-a a sure sign of moisture build-up. Over time, the moisture build-up in your basement or crawlspace can threaten your home with mildew, or dangerous mold.

Many Maryland homes fall victim to flooded basements. Water can trickle into your basement or crawlspace from heavy rains or rapidly melting snow and ice. A flooded basement can be a catastrophe for any homeowner. Precious possessions suffer water damage, and anything you store in your basement can be lost to a flood. If your basement is finished and serves as a family recreation room, the damage can be even more costly.
