For Homes In Chicagoland
Can You Spot These Signs Of A Wet Basement?
When water sits inside your basement, mold can begin to grow on your walls or floors.
This is when water seeps through your porous concrete, leaving behind white salt deposits.
If water soaks into the wooden joists supporting your first floor, the structural integrity of your home could be at risk.
Pay attention to any damp or wet spots on your basement walls or floors.
When water builds up outside your basement walls, it can try to make its way through any openings, such as cracks and unsealed windows.
Sitting water can raise the humidity levels inside your basement, which can travel up through the rest of your home.
Small insects such as fruit flies love puddles of water and damp areas.
If you can smell something musty in your basement, it’s probably coming from damp or wet spots in your basement.
We Can Keep Water Out
Collect & Channel Excess Groundwater
Excess groundwater in the soil outside or under your basement will find a way inside. A drain tile system collects and channels that moisture to a sump pit.
Prevent Moisture Seepage
When we install a vapor barrier along your walls, we can effectively prevent moisture from seeping through your concrete.
Eject Water Out Of Your Basement
Once water reaches a certain level in your sump pit, your sump pump activates and ejects it away from your basement and home.
WE GET IT.
