HOW TO REPAIR BASEMENT WALLS WET
There are several times that your basement walls can become wet and this can cause problems with mould growth, moisture issues, leaks, and cracks in the walls itself. If you notice water leaking into your basement when it’s not raining or even if it’s only moderately rainy, it may be time to repair the problem before it becomes more serious.
CAUSES OF BASEMENT WALLS WET
When the walls of your basement are wet and moist, the moisture will begin to leak into the basement. This will cause wet walls to become wet too. If you are noticing water dripping from your windows when it’s only mildly humid or even after it rains, it may
be time to have the issue fixed immediately because larger, more costly problems are right at hand. The cost of having the water and moisture repaired or replaced could easily double or triple the price you paid for your property.

STEPS TO STOP BASEMENT WALLS WET
The first thing you need to do is to dry out any wet or damp areas with a dehumidifier. These units can cost a pretty penny but it will be well worth the money once you have successfully removed the moisture from the basement. You’ll also want to make sure your home ventilation system is working properly. If it isn’t, it may be a good idea to have it checked by a professional to make sure it isn’t a problem or other obstruction that needs to be fixed.

DETERMINE CRACKS FROM BASEMENT WALLS WET
The next step you can take is to fix the problem with any cracks that may have developed on the walls. Cracks on the walls will cause air to escape from the home and when that happens, the moisture in the basement can cause the walls to expand and contract. Once they start expanding, the moisture will build up in the area and you will need to find a way to eliminate it before it gets too large.
SEAL CRACKS TO REPAIR BASEMENT WALLS WET
Once the cracks have been filled and sealed, you will then need to repair any sagging on the walls that have developed, because this problem can be caused by water seeping in through cracks in the basement floor. Cracks that aren’t covered up will lead to water leaking down to the bottom of the basement. This will cause moisture to collect on the basement floor of the basement which will further cause damage to the walls and floors below it.

BASEMENT WATERPROOFING CONTRACTORS REPAIR BASEMENT WALLS WET
It may also be a good idea to have a contractor check the foundation for a proper drainage system to make sure it is functioning properly. Without proper drainage, the foundation can eventually fail to stop excess water from accumulating in the basement. A proper drainage system will help prevent the basement from becoming wet from the rain falling outside and it can also prevent mould from forming on the basement walls.
