There may be nothing more worrisome for a homeowner than a basement wall that’s bowing. Lateral forces, like soil loads pushing against the wall of your basement, can become too great for your basement walls to bear, and over time, this can cause your walls to bow. Besides being structurally unsound, bowed basement walls give way to cracks, and that can mean moisture seepage into your basement. Mold, mildew, bacteria and certain pests all thrive in that type of environment, so no doubt – you’ll likely have a mess on your hands.
Bowed, cracked walls in your basement are not only unattractive and detract from the value of your home, but also allow for basement wetness. As stated above, this can lead to the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria – and that causes both unpleasant odors and health concerns for you and your family. The worse these problems get, the more likely it is you’ll avoid using your basement. Unfortunately, putting it out of sight, out of mind will probably only cause the problem to get worse.
