Basement Problem Signs in Grand Rapids

Looking for problem signs in your Grand Rapids basement is easy. Flooding water, cracks in the floors or walls, and mold growth are all signs that moisture is seriously impacting the space. Even worse, mold releases its spores which get swept up into your home. That means you and your loved ones will be breathing in harmful mold spores that could lead to respiratory issues. Basement problem signs are progressive, which means they’ll only get worse over time if you ignore them. If you notice these issues, contact FSM as soon as possible for professional solutions.  

Causes of Basement Damage in Grand Rapids

Basement problems always stem from moisture. These sources of water come from both inside and outside the basement, which makes your basement extremely vulnerable. Plumbing floods lead to flooding water directly from indoor pipes. On top of this, sump pump failure creates a serious issue since the flooding water will not be drained from your basement. Outside sources generally stem from poor foundation drainage after heavy precipitation. Every year, Grand Rapids receives about 37 inches of rain and 64 inches of snow. As water drains into the soil around your basement, it exerts more and more pressure before it causes water to leak through cracks in your basement floor.

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Grand Rapids

In order to keep your basement safe, FSM uses basement waterproofing solutions that keep water out for good. One of the best ways to do this is by installing a vapor barrier along all your basement walls. Moreover, inserting an interior drainage system along the indoor perimeter of your basement walls captures water quickly and moves it away. We also install a sump pump (which includes a backup battery for extra security) which removes rising water before it can get into your basement. With all these solutions, your Grand Rapids basement is guaranteed to stay dry.
