How Does a Basement Get Wet?
It’s not uncommon to see moisture seeping into your home or a neighbor’s home through the foundation or basement. Moisture seeps in through cracks, leading to a wet basement that can destroy valuable furnishings or materials left in storage. You may already know that you need a basement waterproofing company to help you—but you may wonder, why does this happen?
It’s normal during construction to dig a hole for the foundation that’s larger than it needs to be. That extra space is back-filled in, meaning that the soil that was removed is added back to fill the space. This soil can never be as hard-packed as the un-excavated, original soil surrounding it. It’s looser, more porous, and a great deal more water-absorbent.
Additionally, some foundations rest on natural bedrock that directs water to springs and other water sources. If your foundation stands in the way of the natural track of this water, it will build up against the foundation. To make matters worse, as the earth around the house settles, the soil will pack lower than the original earth. As the water courses downhill into this lower basin, it pools and absorbs into the dirt around the foundation, causing leaks and other problems.
It’s no surprise that when it rains, water collects more in the immediate area around your foundation. Since you’ve put a house in this hole, it’s no different. The water in this basin will seep through any available opening or crack. If basement wall cracks formed during construction, it’s inevitable that water will find its way through the cracks. As water continues using these cracks, the cracks will get larger through erosion and natural expansion and contraction.
