Damp, moldy conditions in your basement are more than a nuisance. Not only can this be a sign of a leaky basement, it can lead to foundation issues as well as be a health hazard if not treated.
Signs Your Basement Has Water Problems
Have you noticed cracks in your basement? Chances are there’s water coming in; it can even be seeping through what seems like a perfectly good wall or floor. Here are some common signs you have water management issues that need to be addressed.
- Standing water after a heavy rain
- Water seeping through floor or walls
- Wood rot
- Damp walls
- Heavy musty smell
Causes of Leaking Basement
When a home’s foundation is built down below grade, into the ground, the empty living space creates a relatively low-pressure zone that will attract ground water. Some basements are built below the average water table, leaving your basement, and therefore foundation, susceptible to intruding water all year. Some homes with basements are built in a zone of varying ground water and only see water intrusion after heavy rains. Many homes were built with or have been repaired with a drainage system but over time it has failed.
