Cause of Basement Leak

Cause of Basement Leaks in Boston & Cape Cod MA, Providence RI and Surrounding Areas

In order to have a proper waterproof basement, it’s important that you account for several factors, like the type and severity level of any leaks in your foundation – be they from excavation, backfilling, clogged drain pipes or hydrostatic pressure, among others.

Wall & Floor Leaks in Foundations

When exterior drainage pipes are clogged and water has no place else to go, it will find its way into your home through tiny gaps between wall tiles and floor boards. The resulting moisture can lead to mold growth, which poses a problem not only aesthetically but can also significantly impact the health of everyone within the affected home.

Clogged Drainage System

When it rains, fine particles in the soil and other objects such as small rocks can enter your drainage system. Eventually, sediments of mud or whatever else may be blocking its path will build up until there’s no space left for water under pressure to go anywhere, except into places where you don’t want it – like your basement.

Footing Drain Installation by Sump Pump Geeks

When you install a footing drain in your basement, the process includes excavating soil around and backfilling it with dirt once installation has been completed. The newly filled-in area is usually more permeable than untouched earth, thus allowing water to accumulate against the foundation walls during storms or prolonged heavy rains and increasing the risk that it will eventually find its way into your basement.
