Get to know Cold Spring Harbor

Professional Basement Waterproofing

Did you know that standing water in your basement after a big storm or in the spring when snow is melting is a common problem in the Cold Spring Harbor area?

When you have a wet basement, it can damage the home and lead to mold growth. It is a problem that needs a timely solution. Wet basements are often caused by improper drainage around the foundation of the home or by cracks in the basement walls or floor letting water into the basement.

A wet basement can cause structural damage and promote mold growth, which can negatively impact your health.

What causes a wet basement?

When you find that your basement is damp, it can be a cause for concern. There are two primary causes for a wet basement: poor drainage and cracks in your basement walls or floor.

If the problem is poor drainage, you can try to fix it yourself by installing a sump pump, but if it’s severe enough, you may need to call in a professional.

If the problem is cracks in the walls or floor, these will need to be repaired by a professional with experience doing work on the kind of structure you have. If you’re not sure what’s causing your wet basement and which of these solutions might apply, it’s time to call in an expert!

Cold Spring Harbor History & Culture

Cold Spring Harbor was named after the naturally cold freshwater springs that flow in the area. Its economy mainly tied to milling and port activities, it rose in prominence as a whaling community in the mid-nineteenth century. After the decline of whaling in the 1860s, it became a resort town with several hotels. In the 20th century it became known as the site of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, although the laboratory itself is located in the adjacent village of Laurel Hollow in Nassau County, which was called Cold Spring before incorporation.

Today it is primarily a bedroom community of New York City, with a small central business area running along Route 25A, and is home to many educational and cultural organizations: the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum, the Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery and Aquarium, Dolan DNA Learning Center, the Uplands Farm Sanctuary (home of The Nature Conservancy’s Long Island chapter), and a museum exhibition gallery run by Preservation Long Island.
