Basement Waterproofing Near You

Sometimes basements can leak following hard rains or periods of high humidity. When this happens, a damp basement can lead to mold problems and musty smells — not to mention the damage that is done to the existing carpet, walls, or storage items.

To prevent wet basements from happening again, consider waterproofing yours. Find out more information on basement waterproofing services from Rain Pros.

What Is Basement Waterproofing?

Basement waterproofing works to prevent water leakage and mold to improve indoor air quality. Waterproofing can be done internally or externally, depending on your situation and preferences.

Why Might There Be Water in Your Basement?

There can be several reasons why you are experiencing water in your basement. Some of the primary causes include:

  • Improper drainage: If groundwater and rainwater do not have a place in your soil systems to drain effectively, they can accumulate around the home foundation and eventually make their way inside.
  • An incorrect slope: When a home is built, the ground near the foundation should slope away from the house. If it declines toward the foundation, water will seep into the basement and can damage the foundation's structure.
  • Poorly installed gutters: Gutters carry rainwater away from the house. If they are poorly installed or have a clog of some sort, the water will backtrack into the home.
  • Cracks in the basement: Cracks can occur in your basement walls, floors, ceilings, doors, and windows — especially in older homes. Water will flow in the path of least resistance, and the basement is a natural path for it to take.
  • Condensation: Basements can be fairly damp places, but an accumulation of condensation can cause mildew and mold.
  • Water Table: The dense layers of soil at the base of your foundation can prevent water from draining into the soil, the resulting water can come up through cracks in the floor or the seams between your foundation wall and the concrete floor.

What Does Basement Waterproofing Do?

Basement waterproofing can vary depending on which solution you prefer. Choose from various internal and external solutions.

Interior Waterproofing

An interior waterproofing system, also known as a basement channel drain, can effectively remove groundwater before it reaches your floor. If you have noticed water leakage in a specific area, consider choosing and installing a system that treats that location.

A sump pump may be a necessary addition to a basement. This device removes thousands of gallons of water through a discharge pipe, keeping your basement dry when it rains.

Exterior Waterproofing

Rain Pros provides several exterior waterproofing solutions to maintain your foundation's structural integrity. Foundation, downspout, and french drains help manage groundwater to keep it from invading your basement.
