Signs of Basement Water Problems

What Causes Leaky Basements in Northern Virginia?

A leaky basement can cause you to lose living space, personal possessions, and your home’s structural integrity. Having a wet basement also contributes to mold and mildew problems, insect problems, and poor air quality. The cause of a leaky basement is often the build-up of water around the foundation which eventually finds its way through the joints and cracks in the basement walls or floors. If you’ve been experiencing other foundation issues, the leaking water can come inside even faster.

Why Should I Repair My Leaking Basement?

A leaky basement can cause several problems throughout the entire home. Some of these problems include:

  • Deterioration and damage to the interior structure, including walls, floors, & ceilings
  • Damage to electrical-mechanical systems overloaded with water
  • Damaged personal possessions due to excess water or standing water.
  • Water damage to walls, floors, and ceilings
  • Air quality issues related to humidity, mold, and mildew leading to musty odors throughout the home
  • Loss of home’s overall value

With all of these negatives, it’s a no-brainer that if you have a leaky basement in your Northern Virginia home, you should trust an expert to fix it for you. You don’t want to risk your family’s health and safety trying to save money or by ignoring the problem completely.
