Oct 29, 2020

Basement Water Seepage

Basement water seepage is a common occurrence in New England homes and something that shouldn’t be ignored. Water can infiltrate a basement in a number of ways, including through damage bulkhead doors and egress windows, garage doors, and foundation cracks. When this happens, it’s crucial to hire a reputable basement waterproofing company to evaluate the problem right away to prevent extensive damage and the need for costly repairs. The following are common warning signs of basement water seepage:

Mold & Mildew

If you find mold and mildew in your basement, it’s a good sign that the space has high moisture levels. If not addressed, mold can spread rapidly and result in unhealthy conditions in your home.

Foundation Cracks

It’s normal to find small, hairline cracks on your basement floor. However, if the cracks are wide, prominent on your basement walls, or the surface is uneven on either side of a crack, it may indicate that there’s a structural issue. Water can seep through large basement cracks. And, in some cases, it may indicate a larger problem, including hydro-static pressure from water that has built-up around your home’s foundation.

Additional Signs of Water Seepage

The presence of any unexplained moisture in your basement is cause for concern. Water seepage may present itself as peeling paint, damp spots along your walls, a musty odor, rust spots, and rot. If you notice any of these warning signs, have your basement evaluated right away.
