Is Your Basement Flooded? Here Are Four Reasons Why
Basement flooding is a common problem that can occur in every season of the year. Whether you use your basement for storage, a home theater, or a game room, you don’t want to see it tarnished by flooding. Here are common causes of basement flooding.
If your window is leaking, more than a draft may enter. Water can leak through windows with poor seals. Caulking around your basement windows is the best way to prevent this. You can install window well covers to keep water from collecting in your gutter spouts. At most, you may need to consider replacing your windows.
Your Foundation Lacks Insulation
If your basement has poor insulation, it can result in a flooded basement. If you don’t have a properly insulated basement, the chances of your area becoming flooded drastically increase. Poor foundation insulation is arguably the most significant factor in flooded basements, so ensuring your insulation system is in good condition is prudent.
Inadequate Drainage Around Your Home
Drainage systems help keep your home and areas around it dry. Water can seep into your basement if your system is not installed correctly or if it is damaged. If gutters around your home are clogged, that can also lead to water eventually making its way to your basement. You can rely on All Aspects Waterproofing to optimize your drainage system.
High Humidity Levels In Your Home
The type of climate in your basement is essential to prevent water damage. Improper humidity control can cause warping and cracking within wooden components. Poor indoor air quality can also lead to humidity levels that can be a factor in basement flooding.
