A: Water begins to build up around the foundation of your home, and then proceeds to seep through the walls and floor. The leading cause of water in your basement is the drain tile on the exterior of your home that has begun to breakdown or become clogged as a result of the soil settling or poor installation.
A: The odor is caused by dampness and high humidity. Mold thrives in a damp basement environment. This smell often results in increased respiratory infections, asthma, and allergies.
A: Stains are evidence of dampness in that area of the wall or acidic residue. Acidic residue, also known as efflorescence, is a result of water that builds up on the exterior of the basement wall and then travels through the block.
A: Exterior waterproofing is often unnecessary and costlier. Pipes that are placed in the ground around the home can become clogged and cracked because they are still exposed to the original conditions that caused the water to enter your basement to begin with. Soil settling is inevitable, and any pipes or tile installed in this environment will clog and break.
