THE OHIO BASEMENT SYSTEMS PROCESS
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.
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.
Basement Floor Leakage
Basements are susceptible to their fair share of flooding issues being that they’re a below-ground area of the 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.
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.
Leaking Basement Window Wells
Your basement windows have the potential to let in as much water as they do light. You can work with area professionals to seal them off.
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.
If your property has poor basement and foundation drainage, it could be at risk of developing a number of serious forms of damage.
