Water in Yard
Pooling water in your yard can not only be a nuisance to your landscaping, but it can also cause some serious damage to your foundation and can cause water to enter your basement. Water pooling in your yard is due to a faulty surface drainage system. Pooling water in your yard will find its way into your basement through any small crack in your foundation.
Water In Your Yard Could Be In Your Basement
When water enters your basement it can cause thousands of dollars in damage. A wet basement will cause you to lose living space along with ruin personal possessions. Another concern with a damp, wet basement is it promotes the growth of mold and mildew which can cause an unhealthy environment throughout the entire home.
Water enters the basement in several ways. These are some of the most common ways:
- Groundwater in soil - saturated soils get pushed into the basement by hydrostatic pressure
- Surface water running down foundation walls
- Storm sewer water backing up into the home's existing foundation drain and leaking into the basement
- Sanitary sewer water from a clog in home's sewer line.
