Basement Problem Signs in Detroit

No amount of wishing or hoping will make your basement waterproofing problem disappear. If you notice, mold, wet or damp walls or floors, or a flooded basement, it’s a clear sign of an ongoing water damage issue. Other signs are less obvious, however. Things like condensation, efflorescence, or a leaking floor crack can be the first signs of a problem in your Detroit basement. Choosing to make repairs at this stage can save money and headaches down the line. Don’t wait to call the experts at FSM. Putting off repairs can lead to structural damage and put your family at risk.

Causes of Basement Damage in Detroit

You may be wondering what the cause of your basement flooding is. As a homeowner, the answer is not always easy to identify. Although a plumbing leak or a clogged sump pump can lead to basement flooding, the weather, and the soil are typically to blame. The soil around and beneath your Detroit home has large amounts of clay. Clay soil absorbs water easily and expands when wet. If your home has poor foundation drainage, clay soil can cause water to enter your basement where the floor and the wall meet. Although Detroit received around 34 inches of rain per year, just below the national average, the rain seems to occur mostly during the wet spring and fall months. This means your home is inundated with a lot of rain at the same time, causing drainage and leaking problems.
