The Importance of a Dry and Comfortable Basement
A basement is a major asset for homeowners and should be well cared for so that it can continue to be an even greater asset in the future. Too often, basements go uncared for and fall—or remain—in disarray.
Many homeowners tend to accept that their basement is just going to be a damp and uncomfortable space. They often have no idea how easily their basement can be transformed into useable space.
This approach decreases the value of the home and can even cause health issues for residents living above an unkempt basement. Rather than ignoring the needs of your basement and allowing the space to suffer from moisture damage, take note of these important reasons to keep it dry.
Save Money Now and Make Money Later
Ensuring your basement is a comfortable space may be more about your bottom line than about your comfort. Even if you do not have a need for an alternative living area, the next owner might. Seeing this potential is much easier if the basement is dry and clean at the time of showing.
Also, if your basement is currently a dank mess, then it is unusable space. You may be surprised to learn just how many homeowners with a basement are also paying to store valuable belongings in a storage facility.
The money being thrown away on storage would actually pay a return in the long run if invested in creating a dry and comfortable basement at home. The upgraded basement space could then serve as a safe and dry storage space at home while also increasing the value of the home.
A Dry and Comfortable Basement Makes a Healthy Home
Beyond securing a greater return on your investment, keeping your basement dry and comfortable will also keep more of your money in your pocket in the future. Allowing moisture and mustiness to run rampant in a basement means major repairs later.
You may also avoid medical bills incurred from breathing mold spores and other health problems caused by a damp basement.
