Wet Basement Fix
A wet basement is no joke. This can be caused by a number of issues, the most important precaution is to look to see if your gutters are clean and downspouts are not clogged as well as properly diverting water away from your home’s foundation. If downspout water is puddling around the foundation, extend the downspout at least 10 feet from the house.
You will also need to check the surface around your home. If you notice any puddling around your homes foundation, fill them in. The land around your home should slope down to not allow puddle to form around your home. If none of the above looks like it’s causing the water to run into your basement look inward or it could be subsurface water which truly calls for a professional.
For help with getting water out and away from your basement, call a professional for more help.
