Leaking Basement in Warren?

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

Water is seeping through the walls of a basement. We are trusted leaders in water restoration services in Macomb County.

SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores has been restoring water damage for Warren residents for many years. Basement seepage is a common problem, and some steps can be taken to prevent this form of water damage. The Insurance Information Institute offers these helpful tips for preventing basement water seepage:

  • Reseal your basement. Water in the basement is often caused by cracks in building foundations or floor slabs. If you notice water seepage after heavy rain when you’ve never had a problem, it may mean that your once-waterproof cement floors and basement walls have deteriorated. Painting vulnerable areas with water sealant can prevent seepage.
  • Make sure water drains away from the building. Seepage is exacerbated by soil that has settled in a way to make water flow toward the building. After a storm, and especially if the ground is already saturated, rainwater that flows towards the building goes down the outside of the foundation wall, potentially through any cracks.
  • Install a backwater valve. Though less common than other causes of basement water, sewer backups are messy. Learn more about your sewer responsibilities and install and maintain a backwater valve, which allows sewage to go out, but not come back in.
