The basement of your Florence, KY, home can serve a variety of purposes. You can store seasonal items and mementos, set up an office space, have an additional bedroom, create a fun fan cave, and more. But you need to make sure your basement is protected from the harmful effects of water and moisture intrusion. Basements are prone to problems because of their below-ground nature, and the presence of water can lead to a host of dangers including mold growth and damaged belongings.
You won’t have to worry about those issues any longer when your basement is properly waterproofed. Ohio Basement Authority has been helping homeowners in Florence and surrounding areas tackle their basement woes with trusted, long-lasting moisture control solutions for more than 10 years, and we are excited to assist you, as well.

Most problem signs in your Florence basement are easy to spot like leaking walls and floors, leaking windows, efflorescence, wet drywall, and flooding. Others, like mold growth and musty smells, can occur both in your basement and other areas of your home and be difficult to distinguish. These problems will not go away on their own, and they can easily spiral out of control and lead to many other problems that threaten the health and safety of your home and family. It is crucial to seek assistance from the waterproofing professionals at Ohio Basement Authority when you first notice something is wrong in your home.
Causes of Basement Damage in Florence
Damage in your Florence home’s basement can have a variety of causes, but most stem from the local soil. Florence, which is in northern Kentucky close to the Ohio River, has primarily silt loam soil with some silty clay loam properties. The erosion and floods that can occur in some areas with these soils are made worse by Florence’s average annual precipitation of 43 inches of rain and 18 inches of snow. The clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure – which result from frequent rains and the soil combining to create an artificial water table around your home – are phenomena that endanger your property by causing bowing walls and flooding. Your home also could lack effective foundation drainage, and internal leaks can come from broken sump pumps or leaking water heaters.
Your Florence house is unique, and it needs its own set of repairs to meet the challenges it faces. Ohio Basement Authority offers a variety of permanent, customizable basement waterproofing solutions that will benefit your home. These include a wall vapor barrier to help prevent moisture infiltration, interior drainage to capture leaking water from the walls and floor, a sump pump to quickly collect and remove this water, and a dehumidifier to regulate humidity levels and condition the air. We also offer battery backup sump pumps and an anti-freeze sump pump discharge line attachment. Each product has its own benefits, but when combined, they create a comprehensive waterproofing system that gives your basement the complete protection it deserve
