What is Waterproofing?

It’s happened to all of us at one point or another. A leak has occurred. And regardless if it’s on your roof or coming from the floor, you need to get rid of it, fast. You search for the best ways to protect your commercial property from water damage and to no avail, you can’t seem to find anything. That is, until, you come across a few pages mentioning waterproofing. But then you ask yourself, “what is waterproofing?”

If you’ve come across the idea of waterproofing your commercial property but aren’t exactly sure what it is, then continue reading below. Deluxe Waterproofing is more than happy to inform you of the process and if you should get waterproofing or not.

What is Waterproofing?

The term waterproofing is exactly as it implies. It’s the process of making an object or a structure resistant to water so that it remains fairly unaffected by water or resistant to the ingress of water under certain conditions.

This method has been relied on by numerous property owners in order to protect their commercial properties from the damaging effects of water. Here in Florida, especially, waterproofing is practically an essential need considering how much water damage takes place to properties within the state. But often, however, some property owners may find that they don’t need waterproofing.

How do I Know if I Need Waterproofing?

Really, it all depends on the severity of the situation and the area.

Most commercial properties in the Florida landscape that are situated close to the beach will typically need waterproofing performed to ensure that their properties aren’t damaged. It serves as an extra layer of protection to guarantee that water won’t seep in and destroy the structure.

But other than location, waterproofing may be needed solely for the reason that your commercial property is highly susceptible to water damage. If a single leak occurs in your property, it may eventually lead to more devastating leaks later down the line. Also, waterproofing will also be needed just because it’s a safety precaution for construction. Areas of a commercial property where water will commonly occur (such as bathrooms and showers) will need to be waterproofed.
