There are many common questions we come across being in the waterproofing business. We want to take the time to address some of the most frequent questions we are asked. Hopefully, these questions will give you more insight into how it is possible to stop leaks in your basement.
What are the most common reasons for a basement leak?
No one reason stands out, but there are several common causes:
Why is the water problem worse during the summer?
The problem could be condensation and not leaking. As it gets humid outside, sweat can build on basement walls because of the temperature difference. This problem can also occur on floors and in crawl spaces.
If water only appears in one spot, can I fix that?
In theory, you might be able to get away with a small fix, but you must remember, water travels the way of least resistance. You may very well fix that one spot and find that water is now pushed somewhere else causing the same problem. It is cost-effective to take care of the issue once, rather than a few small fixes over the course of some time.
Should mold on the walls concern me?
One problem associated with excess water in a basement is that mold loves still and excess water. Mold is a potential health hazard waiting to happen. If you see mold, you must implement mold remediation.
