Common Causes of Basement Water
Water in your basement causes many problems: mold, mildew, and even something as serious as foundational damage to your home. Pinning down the cause of a wet or flooded basement or crawl space can be difficult, as there is a multitude of things that could cause it. Water can come in from:
- Over the top of the wall
- Floor drains
- Tie rods
- Cracks or damage in the basement wall
- Cracks in basement floor
- Inadequate rain water drainage around home
- Window wells
- Broken water lines
No matter the cause of basement moisture, water is water, and the problem will need to be resolved. Once you’ve determined why water is entering your basement, you will need to take the proper steps towards fixing it, which could vary widely depending on the cause, of course.
Fixing Basement Moisture
The best way to clean up water in your basement is to call an expert. StayDry is the best at what they do in the field in Ann Arbor. We have services to provide you with practical solutions to the problems that cause water to enter your home.
If water is coming into your home is caused by cracks, gaps, or breaks in your foundation, we have foundation repair services. One of our most popular services is crack injection. We will assess cracks in your home and foundation to make sure that they are nothing to be alarmed about. Once the crack has been deemed safe, we will inject a waterproof filler into the crack to seal it and keep it from getting larger. Other foundation repair services that we can offer are wall straightening, fortress stabilization, steel brace reinforcement, and complete or partial wall rebuilds.
If you still can’t seem to keep water outside of your home, you might need complete basement waterproofing service. We will seal porous concrete to keep water from seeping in before it causes cracks or damage. We can also install exterior and interior drain systems to move water away from our out of your home to prevent it from standing in the basement. We also can install sump pumps to help pump out the water that pools in your basement or crawl space.
Another extremely common cause of basement moisture and standing water is tie rod hole leaks. We are happy to pay your home a visit to repair the leak. To fix a rod tie hole leak, we use our crack injection method, which is superior to the DIY plugging method that many other companies use. We inject polyurethane to seal the hole and stop any water from getting into your basement so you don’t need to have further repairs.
What Happens if You Go Without Repair?
If you leave water or moisture in your home or basement, you will not only damage your home’s foundation, as neither wood nor concrete are waterproof, but you will also create a perfect environment for mold and mildew. Both of which thrive in dark, damp spaces and can be incredibly harmful and even destructive to your home and health. They can cause respiratory problems and illness, especially for those that are vulnerable, such as small children and older people. We can help you extinguish the mold in your home, and help you prevent it from growing in the first place. We will help you remove standing water, and water from the air to make your basement or crawl space an unsupportive environment for these dangerous pesks. We can also clean up the damage caused by them to make sure that your home is safe, and you can breathe easy from now on.
Water can also dry rot wood, and cause cracks in concrete, compromising the structural integrity of your home, and costing you potentially thousands of dollars in repairs for something that could have been as simple as filling a crack, or replacing a few wooden foundation beams.
