It may result in adverse effects since many insurance covers do not cover water damage.

Effects on your building structure

Water, especially from rainfall or sewer pipes, contains acids which allowed to come into contact with the floor, may react with it and erode it. The damage may also be extended to walls causing cracks, which may weaken the walls depending on how your contractor did the curing process. In timber cases, water causes rotting of timber and, if not corrected early, may lead to the collapse of your structure. As the proverb goes, “prevention is better than cure.” Avoid moisture from your basement, and in case of any moisture, get rid of it as soon as possible.
