Dealing with a wet basement repair can be very frustrating. Water can damage walls and flooring and it can create mold that can be very harmful to your health.

How to prevent wet basement

To answer a question of how to prevent wet basement, it is important to understand where the water is coming from. There are few common sources of water that seeps into basements. When homeowners experience wet basement for the first time, it is imperative to determine if the water problems are going to reoccur or if it was a one-time event. Waterproofing contractors can determine why the wet basement is occurring or reoccurring.

Controlling water will prevent wet basement.

If this is the first time for wet basement problems, the first thing to check for is surface water draining down next to the foundations. If no surface water sources are found, then the source of the water is likely subsurface groundwater under hydrostatic pressure. Sometimes the rainwater in the sewer system can get so high that water flows backwards toward the house.

If the water is coming up through floor drains or sink drains in the basement, then the problem is likely water backing up from the municipal sanitary sewer system. Wet basement repair can cost a lot of money if the problem is not fixed in time. Our basement waterproofing contractors will prevent wet basement floor & wet basement wall.
