What Are Some of the Causes of Basement water Seepage in Harrison Charter Township?

7/12/2022 (Permalink)

Water is seeping into a basement. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration services in Mount Clemens!

Our Mount Clemens and New Baltimore team responds to water damage emergencies every year in Harrison Charter Township. Basement water leaks and seepage are common in Macomb County homes. Here are some of the causes of water seepage issues in basements from the Insurance Information Institute:  

Lateral pressure:?When the soil surrounding your basement absorbs water and expands, it creates stress on your basement walls, causing them to crack and allowing water to seep into the structure. 

Hydrostatic pressure:?Similar to lateral pressure, hydrostatic pressure can cause buckling and cracking of the walls and foundation of a house. 

Poor landscaping:?If the grade of the soil around your foundation runs towards your foundation, your basement can flood. 

Clogged window wells:?If your window wells are filling with water, your window wells may be improperly installed, or the drain is clogged. 

Leaky pipes:?Inspect your plumbing systems, starting with their entry into the basement to where it leaves, including the sewer line. Make repairs as required. 

Pool Leak:?Swimming pool leaks can saturate the ground and weaken your home's foundation.
