Water Seepage in Moorhead Basement?

3/8/2022 (Permalink)

Water is seeping into a basement through cracks in the wall. We mitigate and restore water damage 24-hours a day in Clay County.

If you discover water in your Moorhead basement, SERVPRO® of Moorhead is Here to Help. ® Our technicians typically arrive within four hours of your call, and our fast emergency response time prevents secondary damage and more time-consuming and costly repairs in many cases.

There are five common causes for water seepage and basement leaks.

Lateral pressure: When the soil surrounding your basement absorbs water and expands, it creates stress on your basement walls, causing them to crack, allowing water to seep into the structure.

Hydrostatic pressure: Similar to lateral pressure, hydrostatic pressure can cause buckling and cracking of the walls and foundation of a house.

Poor landscaping: If the grade of the soil around your foundation runs towards your foundation, your basement can flood.

Clogged window wells: If your window wells are filling with water, your window wells may be improperly installed, or the drain is clogged.

Leaky pipes: Inspect your plumbing systems, starting with their entry into the basement to where it leaves, including the sewer line. Make repairs as required.
