Whether your basement is a large storage area, an empty space or a beautifully finished family room, you can find the same leaking and mold issues. The basement is below ground level and is subject to water leakage caused by hydrostatic pressure.
What causes basement leakage? “Water in the wrong place” is the most obvious answer to that question, but there are a number of other issues that are important. Since 85% of all basements built leak at some point in their life cycle, basements have some dampness and water common problems.
You can install a sump pump to remove water from lower level areas. Sump pumps are particularly helpful in wet basements. Water that arrives via the walls and floors is collected and pumped out of the home.
