Interior Water Leaks

You should always check for interior water leaks first when trying to look for the cause of moisture in your basement. Water leaks can come from all sorts of places, a washing machine, a bad pipe, a dishwasher, a sink, a toilet and more. Fortunately, interior leaks are easy to solve. You can just call a plumber to take care of this simple problem for you.

Defective Gutters

A defective gutter system can also cause your basement to become damp. Clogged gutters will overflow when it rains. This overflowing water can saturate the ground surrounding your foundation and eventually reach your basement. You can fix this problem by hiring a gutter company to clean your gutters and install a gutter protection system. A gutter protection system like our Gutter Helmet can prevent leaves, dirt and other debris from entering and clogging your gutters.

Poor Landscape Grading

The ground surrounding your foundation should slope away from your house and not towards it. Poor grading will cause water to accumulate against your foundation. This problem often occurs when fill dirt around the foundation isn’t compacted properly. You can fix this problem by creating a slope aiming away from your house.
