Is A Wet Basement A Problem?

A wet basement is a problem, but not the end of the world, as long as you can get the moisture out of the basement and keep your floor dry. Once the water has entered the basement, it is usually impossible to get the moisture out.

Determine If Your Wet Basement Is A Problem

et basements usually occur because of moisture leaking from the ceiling or the foundation, or from the soil around the house that contains water. If the moisture is caused by one of these sources, the best way to deal with it is to first find where the leaky area is. Once you know the source, you need to find the source of the leak, either b

by waterproofing the area or sealing it with a membrane or caulk. This will make sure that the source is fixed and prevent future leaks.

How To Fix A Problematic Wet Basement

If you do not have a waterproofing system in place for a wet or leaky area, you can seal the area with a sheet of caulk or foam. These systems are relatively inexpensive and you may want to do this as soon as possible so that it will not leak after the weather breaks up. The foam should be applied to the wet areas immediately so that it does not leak out while you are trying to finish your flooring project.

One other way to fix a wet basement is to excavate and treat the area around the foundation. This may involve digging out all the soil around the foundation, as well as any subsoil that is below the surface, to make sure that the foundation is in good shape.

Dry Out Wet Basement As Soon As Possible

Sump Pumps Can Solve Your Wet Basement Problem

If the flooring is already in place and the floor is completely dry, you may want to consider installing a sump pump to remove the excess water from the basement. This can save you money and can also help you avoid further damage to your flooring and walls.

If you have an older home that does not have a proper drainage system, you may want to consider adding in a sump pump to your home to make sure that a wet basement is prevented from reoccurring. as often as possible.

Your Wet Basement Could Be A Problem If There’s Water Damage

If you suspect that there is a problem with your home, there are a few things that you can do to make sure that you do not have any water damage. First of all, make sure that you have the proper drainage. installed throughout the entire home. Make sure that you have at least one inch of drainage for each foot of floor area, even if it is just a tiny puddle under your foot.

You should also make sure that there is no excess water on the floor, such as water stains from a spilled drink or a foundation drain holes in the floor. If you do find water on the floor, you should immediately clean it up and dry it as quickly as possible, before mould begins to grow. If you can salvage anything from the water, it should be removed as quickly as possible.

Aquatech was wonderful right from the first contact to having Richard come out and give us a very complete and detailed quote to the two man crew who were here exactly on time and completed the day hours ahead of time. All the locates were taken care of and within a week of contacting them the job was completed. The workman did a fabulous job and were very respectful of our property. They reviewed the scope of the work before they started and asked if we had any questions. When the work was complete it was difficult to see where they had worked and dug the trench. Everything was tidier than before they started. We are very impressed and in a world where household repair companies can be less than favourable, Aquatech stands head and shoulders above any of them. We would highly recommend this company. We also have a life time transferable warranty too. Bravo. We will definitely be telling all the people we know about our wonderful experience. Thank you.

We had a flood disaster the day after we got the keys for our new home. Aquatech Waterproofing responded to my request for help quickly and came to access the damages the same day. They gave us several options for repairs as well as prevention that were fairly priced and a quick turnaround time. They executed our chosen plan quickly and did a beautiful job. They have been very responsive, answering questions about the products we chose and we recommend them to anyone that needs quality work done in a timely manner. Very compassionate and empathetic for our situation as well.

AquaTech is very professional and reliable. Valentina was very friendly, she scheduled the appointment at a convenient time and Nico came out to look at my problem. He diagnosed it and gave me a reasonable price. We went ahead with the job. The crew that came out to do it was very knowledgeable and professional. I had some questions and Igor explained everything to me with no problem. I highly recommend this company. Thank you AquaTech!

EXCELLENT experience. Andrew was the first one to arrive and was extremely kind and helpful. Igor and Basil joined Andrew a few minutes later and all three of them worked very hard and finished this massive job in one day. These are some of the hardest workers I have ever seen. There were no hassles or surprises and Andrew, Igor and Basil were very skilled and courteous. Also, Nico was VERY flexible with our constant changes of plans and was very accommodating and understanding. An excellent experience all around - could not recommend more highly!

Much thanks & appreciation to Slava & his hardworking crew for their excellent job excavating, installing weeping tiles & pipe, repairing cracks, waterproofing, and backfilling the 7'-deep trench 27' along the full side of our home. Wow!! On site, Slava, the lead foreman, clearly explained step by step their work including repairing foundation cracks and securing our downspout and other connections better then before. All in all, we are greatly satisfied & highly recommend Aquatech to anyone looking into correcting their leaking basements. Slava -- you & your crew brought humor, sincerity & experience -- no rush job here, just highly competent work by deserving technicians & company. Thanks also to Andrew and Terry for their super fast service with the gas line locate, the fast return calls, home inspection & estimate. Priced fairly for super work + 25 years warranty that can be passed on to a new homeowner. You guys were great!! Highly recommend! -- Anne & Frank - Scarborough

Terry was friendly, fair, and transparent on his work and recommendations. Other bidders could have gouged myself on the price but he was honest. He kept costs downs but the quality was still top notch. He treated our family like one of his own without being “fake” to get the job. He’s as genuine and real as they come.

Slava and his crew did a fantastic job of installing piers and raised our sinking front concrete 4 inches. Very courteous, hard working crew! They hand dig as opposed to other companies that wanted to use a backhoe thus, saved our shrubbery and trees. I would highly recommend Aquatech!

Poor Foundation Drain Holes Cause Wet Basement Problems

If the foundation drain holes in the floor are not repaired properly, you may have to invest in some waterproofing material such as caulking or cement, to prevent water from seeping through into the basement. or spreading through your home’s interior walls. This is especially important when it comes to old homes that have drywall and plaster.
