Basement Problem Signs in Cleveland, OH
Basement problems are more than just obvious flooding or standing water on your basement floor. Many other issues will be visible not only in your basement, but the rest of your Cleveland home, as well. These include musty odors, mold growth, efflorescence, elevated humidity, wet drywall, condensation, leaking windows, and leaking floors and walls. Addressing these problems as soon as you notice them is crucial, as they will only continue to worsen over time, become more hazardous, and eventually be more expensive to repair. If you are unsure about what to look for, don’t hesitate to reach out to our experts for a free inspection.
If you want to prevent seepage throughout your basement, you’ll need to take steps to prevent water from getting into your home.
Condensation is a sign of excessive humidity in your basement and should not be ignored. It can be a sign of serious issues at work in your home.
That chalky white residue on your basement walls may seem harmless, but efflorescence could be the telltale sign of damage and dampness in your property.
Common Causes of Basement Damage in Cleveland
Problems in your Cleveland basement can happen for many reasons, including internal leaks from water heaters and broken sump pumps. However, the soil on your property is responsible for most causes of basement damage. Cleveland’s varied silt loam, silty clay loam, and clay soils can easily become unstable due to poor compaction, shrinking and drying, and wetting and softening. The soil is generally moist year-round from the 38 inches of rain and 54 inches of snow Cleveland receives annually. This wet soil can form an artificial water table around your home and contribute to hydrostatic pressure that results in cracks and leaks. Your foundation also may lack proper drainage to handle all this water and runoff.
Sump Pump Issues
Sump pumps help keep your home water-free, but they’re not perfect. You can work with area professionals to repair a damaged sump pump.
Water Heater Leaking
A hot water heater that’s under too much pressure can cause serious water damage in your basement. Reach out for professional help today.
If your property has poor basement and foundation drainage, it could be at risk of developing a number of serious forms of damage.
