Basement Problem Signs in Kalamazoo

Basement problem signs are most often caused by water leaking into the space. Eventually, water in your Kalamazoo basement leads to mold (which poses a health risk to your family) and basement flooding (which poses a threat to the structural integrity of your home). Basement problem signs won’t resolve on their own, so it’s important to contact FSM as soon as possible to ensure your home stays safe.

Causes of Basement Damage in Kalamazoo

There are a few things that cause basement damage, and all of them stem around water getting into your basement. One of the most prominent causes is hydrostatic pressure. When soil around your basement becomes saturated with water, pressure builds below the surface. Kalamazoo consistently receives above-average amounts of snow and rain every year, so this is a serious issue for homeowners in the area. Eventually, hydrostatic pressure leads to a leaking basement floor. Other causes of basement damage include internal plumbing floods, poor foundation drainage, or sump pump failure.
