Water Damage Prevention near Fairfax, Alexandria & Arlington, VA

We all know basements are surrounded by soil. The soil beneath your basement has moisture. When the groundwater level rises, moisture makes its way into your basement through the leaks and cracks in your foundation walls and basement. Moisture can also enter your basement due to condensation. In the end, moisture starts damaging the place. From creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew to creating dampness and foul odor moisture can harm your basement in many ways, resulting in costly repairs.

Now, why wait for moisture to harm your basement and repair it afterward? Why not prevent it from entering the place in the very beginning?

How Water Enters Your Basement in Virginia?

  • Window Well: If your basement doesn’t have proper drainage or the drain is clogged due to debris, or, the window well is not accurately installed, water cumulates in the well. During heavy rain that water leaks into your basement. The pooled water in the well will start leaking into your basement regardless of the window being defect-free.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure: During heavy rain or melting snow, the soil absorbs the water. After being fully saturated when the soil can no longer absorb water, the water level rises. As a consequence hydrostatic pressure (water pressure) occurs, pushing the water through your basement walls and floor.
  • Lateral Pressure: As, the soil surrounding your house is not fully compact due to the digging up and backfilling of the soil, after heavy rain the soil starts to expand and creates lateral pressure (pressure from sideway) against the foundation. It causes cracks in the basement walls and water easily leaks through.
  • Faulty Plumbing: If any pipe is leaky inside your home, it can result in the pipe bursting and ultimately flood your basement.
  • Inadequate Sump Pump: The purpose of the sump pump is to pump and channel away water from the basement floor and foundation so that the water doesn’t gather under the floor. But due to poor maintenance, it fails to divert the water away, resulting in water leaking into the basement.
