Common Causes of a Wet, Musty Basement

Does your house have issues with basement flooding? Over time, aging and nature will begin to wear away at your foundation. Since most homes cannot withstand natural weathering, leaky basements and water damage are almost inevitable.

Dealing with a wet basement can be a major headache, but it's typically a problem that Thrasher Foundation Repair can resolve quickly. The key is to understand what's causing the water in your basement.

Why is My Basement Wet?

Foundation cracks can cause a wet basement

Foundation Cracks

Wherever there is an opening in the foundation, including cracks in the walls and floors, water and moisture can enter your home and cause significant damage.

Failed basement drains can cause a wet basement

Basement Drains

Your foundation drainage system can begin to deteriorate over time, which can cause the drainage tile system to fail and lead to a flooded basement.

Faulty basement sump pumps can cause a wet basement

Faulty Basement Sump Pumps

Broken or damaged sump pumps fail to prevent excess water from seeping into the basement from outside through foundation cracks or porous cement.

Leaky egress windows can cause a wet basement

Leaky Egress Windows

Water can leak through improperly sealed egress windows when window wells become clogged by leaves, weeds, and other debris that impede proper water drainage.

Signs & Symptoms of Water Damage in Basement

Sometimes the signs of water damage in your basement can be minor, making them easy to miss or put off for later. However, these issues only compound over time and can lead to larger, more severe basement water problems down the road.

Early Signs of Water Damage

  • Mold & mildew
  • Condensation
  • Wood rot
  • Puddles or standing water
  • Cracked or crumbling walls
  • Sinking or uneven floors
  • Damp air
  • Musty smells
  • Wet drywall
  • Wet flooring
  • Flaking or peeling paint
  • White, chalky stains on concrete walls or floors

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Basement condensation occurs when warm, moist air comes in contact with cool basement walls and floors. Since the basement is below grade, the air is usually colder than the outside in the summer months. As a result, the basement draws in outside air like a vacuum, causing condensation when coming into contact with the cold basement air.

  • Yes, you can take it with you! We also offer a 25-year transferable warranty.

  • It is called efflorescence, and it's a mineral deposit left behind after water or moisture evaporates. You'll often find this white, chalky substance on concrete basement walls and floors around entry points, such as cracks and wall floor joints. Efflorescence isn't harmful, and although it is easy to clean, it is an indication that your basement has a water issue. Addressing the source of the water problem is essential to keep the stains from coming back - and prevent more severe water damage from occurring.

  • New construction waterproofing often comes with no or a minimal warranty. There are different ways to waterproof a basement, but the most common is through a spray-on sealant on the walls, which can be damaged when a contractor backfills soil around the house. It can also crack when the house moves or shifts. Contractors usually install exterior drain tile as well. Since the tile is sitting in the dirt, it can often become silted closed or damaged during the backfill process.

  • Thrasher Foundation Repair provides wet basement solutions with long-term warranties. Considerations include the type of waterproofing system and sump pump system you install. There are many different options to choose from, and each offers different levels of protection.

  • If you are concerned about basement flooding, there are some precautionary steps you can take. This includes removing any finished materials that you believe may come into contact with water. You should also make sure to remove items from the floor, such as furniture. If you want to keep your basement dry and protected from flooding in the future, investing in basement waterproofing solutions is your best bet.
