What’s Causing my Basement Moisture?

If you’re trying to cure a wet or musty basement, you’re probably wondering if it’s possible to dry out a basement simply by sealing the walls?

Often, it is, but to choose the right option, you need to determine if the moisture is coming from outside your foundation, or if it’s high interior humidity condensing on the cooler walls of your basement.

Oneil Concrete Construction can help determine the root cause of your basement moisture problems, and suggest the best solutions for your situation.

A Sump Pump Can Save Your Home

A dependable sump pump is used where basement flooding happens regularly, and to prevent dampness in basements built below a high local water table. Sump pumps eliminate water and divert it away from your house to a place where it is no longer problematic, like a municipal storm drain or a dry well.

“If you’re in an area where flooding is likely, the water table is high, or where rapidly melting snow or sudden heavy rainstorms are common, chances are you have one in your home,” says Square One Insurance Services. “It doesn’t take much water to cause thousands of dollars of damage, and if you have a damp basement, mold can be a serious problem. A good sump pump can be worth its weight in gold. In some places, these pumps are a requirement and are installed in all new homes.

When you waterproof your basement, be sure to invest in a quality sump pump system from Oneil Concrete Construction!
