If you want to keep your commercial building from suffering foreseeable damage, waterproofing is a necessity. Waterproofing can help prevent structural damage, and it can contribute to the health of those who use the building regularly. To learn more about commercial building waterproofing, contact RUTA Contracting in Toronto, ON.
When water intrusion begins, it can separate parts of the building from itself. If temperatures get below freezing at night and warmup during the day, this intrusion is hastened by a process called ice wedging. The water will freeze and expand at night, allowing more water to get into the space during the day, and the process continues.
In addition to causing cracks to form and subsequently widen, moisture can cause paint to peel of the building, giving it a dilapidated look. This can be bad for business, but it can be avoided with building waterproofing.
Mold can cause myriad health issues. Even the mildest molds can trigger allergies or asthma attacks, but some types of mold can cause infections, especially in those with weakened immune systems. The most dangerous molds can be toxic to anyone who breathes them in.
Waterproofing can prevent mold from forming in the first place, keeping any inhabitants or employees in the building safe from these unfortunate health problems. As an added benefit, you won't face legal trouble for negligence in keeping your employees or customers safe.
