What Causes Water in Your Basement?
There are several reasons you have water in your basement. It’s the lowest point in any home and often water pipes and sewage lines usually run through your basement walls or floor. Plus, water can seep into your basement through foundation walls or up through the floor, making it easy for water to collect in the basement.
Cracked Basement Walls
Cracks in your basement walls are one of the biggest problems. Even the smallest crack will let water seep through your basement walls. Water can also come in through the gap between then your basement wall and floor.
Broken and/or Leaky Pipes
A burst or leak can cause significant damage to your basement. Most pipes burst or leak without warning, and it can be days, weeks or even months before you notice the signs of a damaged pipe. However, once you do spot a leaking or broken pipe, it’s critical to act fast. A broken pipe that isn’t immediately repaired can become a disastrous problem.
Poor Drainage Around Your Home
Water should always drain away from your home to keep your basement dry. However, blocked gutters and even your landscaping will cause water to pool around your foundation. Cracks or worn-out waterproofing will then let water into your basement.
