Most Common Reasons for a Wet Basement:
A common cause for wet basements is water rising up through the basement floor through cracks.
These can be easily and effectively repaired with a proper perimeter drainage system and restoring the floor.
Plumbing failure is a common reason for house floods. This kind of damage can be extensive in walls, floors, and with everything stored within the flooded area. To prevent plumbing flood, there are a few different factors to look at that may need repair: failing washing machine hoses, alarm systems for sump pumps, or leaky water heater units.
Cracks are a common issue with poured concrete walls. As the concrete cures its volume shrinks, which can cause cracking over time. A great fix for wall cracks is to inject Polyurethane foam. It expands to fill the entire crack all the way through the wall to prevent future flooding.
Water Heater Flood
Water heater issues are one of the most common reasons for household flooding. When they rupture or burst, several gallons of water can pour out into your home very quickly. The FloodRing is an easy installation and great way to prevent these types of floods. A WaterWatch Floor Alarm is also available to give you a warning of any water detection.
Sump Pump Failure
A sump pump’s sole purpose is to pump out any water from outside your house before it even enters your basement. If sump pump failure occurs, your basement is in danger of flooding. Common reasons for sump pump failure include power outage, mechanical issues, or improper installation. We offer backup systems and alarms to make sure there is a plan B in place if your sump pump fails.
A single house could have one or several of these issues, and some are easier to spot than others. If you think your home may be experiencing any of these issues, it is important to get them addressed immediately before it becomes worse. Our experts at AquaGuard are happy to come out and take a look to address any current or potential issues your home’s foundation may have.
