40% of the Air you breathe, YES, comes from the basement!

Percentages range, but studies all over the world support the fact that yes indeed air moves from your basement up to the rest of the home. 40% or more of the air you breathe on a regular basis comes from the basement.

And if you're looking for a good investment and project to do during these times to not only better the air in your home, but protect your basement, family, and foundation then this is a good article to read.

What is Wicking:Clearing the noise in basement waterproofing Terms

My recent article on Wicking is yet another article written to help to eliminate confusion.

There are many terms that we throw around on a daily basis and we know the differences. Seepage, bubbling, wicking, dribbling, arcing; all to discribe water. And in the thick of it, our language can be confusing and a down right turn off.

This article I tackled Wicking, what it is, and what it means. I also included a small detailed explination of how water can actually wick up your foundation walls from your footing, why it happens, and what it can mean for you.
