We Can Handle All Types of Basement Drainage Repairs
If you find water in your basement, one of the causes could be a clogged or improperly functioning drain. If your basement drain is clogged, this prevents water from draining properly to the outside and can result in backups of water into your basement. In addition, basement drains have traps that can cause odors if they are not properly filled with water.
Professional Tip: If you have water on your basement floor, or see worrying cracks on the cement floor of your basement, contact our team for a proper assessment.
Water on Your Basement Floor Can be Caused by a Number of Situations
- Drains can be clogged with dirt or sediment and this is a common cause of water backups.
- Damage to your interior French drains, sump pump systems or cracks in the floor can also bring water into your basement that will be noticeable on the floor.
Sump Pumps Are Critical Devices That Keep Your Basement Dry
Pumping groundwater out so it can’t accumulate in your basement is an important component of waterproofing for those buildings where water accumulation is an issue. If your home has a sump pump, check that it is functioning properly. In addition, ensure you have a battery backup for your sump pump in case the main source of power goes out during a storm.
Sump pumps, in addition to waterproofing membrane, weeping tile systems, and proper grading, are a core component of waterproofing, especially in rural areas where there are no storm sewers, or in areas with a high-water table or have heavy rains.
Be sure to test your sump pump regularly, and in advance of any large storm. Just pour some water into the pit and see if the pump turns on and is moving water out of the sump pit.
Professional Tip: If a heavy storm arrives, oftentimes power can go out and you will need a battery backup to make sure your sump pump is working to pump all of the storm water out and away from your home.
