Wet Basement & Water in Basement
Water in your basement can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Not only will a wet basement cause damage to personal possessions, but it can also cause you to lose living space. One of the other concerns with water in your 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 water-saturated soils gets 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.
Water will find its way into your basement through any small crack it can find. Don't let a wet basement cause you to experience all of the unpleasant consequences that it causes. If you see unwanted water in your home, this is the obvious sign of a wet basement. However, there are other indications that you may have a water problem.
Some signs of water trouble include:
- Musty odors
- High humidity throughout your home
- Rusty appliances
- Insect infestation
- Condensation on pipes
