Basement Problem Signs in Youngstown

The most obvious sign that there is something wrong in your Youngstown basement is the presence of water, whether it is trickling down the walls, puddling on the floor, or flooding the entire space. Some problem signs, however, can sometimes fly under the radar. Be on the lookout for mold, efflorescence on concrete walls and floors, unpleasant odors, and condensation on windows and ductwork. Time is not on your side with these issues, as they will merely get worse the longer they continue and lead to more widespread damage and costly repairs. Fixing them the right way before they get out of hand is the best way to ensure your basement’s health and safety. 

Causes of Basement Damage in Youngstown

While your basement is located inside your home, damage is typically caused by external forces. These include Youngstown’s soil and weather, and how they interact to affect your home. Clay and silt soils in the area respond to water in various ways. Clay expands and contracts, and silt might wash away. Youngstown also averages 38 inches of annual rainfall and 40 inches of annual snowfall. This much water and runoff will cause the soil to readily flood, impose hydrostatic pressure on your basement walls, and lead to cracks and leaks. Your basement may also sustain damage from internal sources including broken sump pumps, leaking water heaters, or burst pipes.
