Why Do Basements Leak?
Water can get trapped around the foundation of your home due to improper grading, soil settlement, and clogged footing drains. A clogged footing drain prevents water from flowing away from your home. As water pools around your foundation, hydrostatic pressure builds and begins to push against the foundation. This pressure forces water through cracks in the walls and floors, and into the cavities of the hollow masonry blocks, and will intrude into your basement. Water can also get into the basement through improperly installed doors and windows, clogged stairwell drains, pipe penetrations, and leaking hot water heaters.
