Keep an Eye Out for Water in Your Home

Your yard and your foundation provide many telltale signs that you might be in for a wet basement nightmare. It is wise as a homeowner to walk around the exterior of your home a few times a year. Take note of any cracks you might find in the foundation. Look at the drainage leading away from your home as well to make sure that water is moving down and away from the foundation.

The slope of your landscaping and pavement can be an important factor in making sure water is moving in the right direction. Check your gutters and downspouts frequently. Clogged gutters are a leading cause of water build up around your foundation. If there is water around your foundation, it will inevitably put pressure on the walls of your foundation causing them to bow and crack. Water seepage and water stains will show up on your basement walls, and before you know it, you have a very wet basement.

Moisture in your basement can cause other problems such as:

  • Bugs and Other Pests
  • Mold and Mildew
  • Wood Rot
  • Rust on Beams and Supports
  • Poor Air Quality
