Why Is Your Basement Leaking From The Floor?

Basement Waterproofing For Your Leaky Basement? We Can Help!

If you have experienced a leak in your basement, you may wonder why the basement is leaking from the ceiling. This article will help you understand why your basement is leaking and give you a few ideas on what to do.

Reasons Why There’s Water On Basement Floor

Water Coming From Basement Ceiling

The first reason why is the ceiling. You may have a ceiling that is not level and that may be the reason that the basement is leaking from the ceiling. If you are trying to install new drywall or some sort of insulation, there is a good chance that you may have to drill into the ceiling or possibly even use glue to fix it. Make sure that you have this worked out before you start any work that could potentially crack the ceiling.

Water Coming From Foundation

The next reason why is the foundation of your home. If you live in an older home, you probably have a home with a foundation that has not been properly maintained. If you have a basement or crawl space, you will most likely have water seeping up from underneath the foundation. This can cause problems in the future, such as foundation damage or leaking.

Your Foundation May Be Weak

The last reason why your basement leak is coming from the floor is that your foundation has become weak over time. You may have a slab in your basement that has been damaged. If your basement has a slab, there is a chance that it is already weak and you may be able to notice water leaking from the floor. You may also be noticing the leak from a crack in the floor. You should make sure that you have checked for any cracks in the floor and are checking to see if any of them are causing the problem.

How To Stop Water On Basement Floor

The easiest solution to a basement leak is to just fix the foundation itself. If you are dealing with a concrete basement, you can use a pump and float it over the area to remove any excess soil or debris. After you are done doing this, you will have a perfectly waterproofed foundation. You may have to do a bit of excavation to get to the foundation, but you will need to remove all siding and insulation from around the baseboard.

Why Is Your Basement Leaking From The Floor? With Aquatech

Foundation Repair Can Be As Easy As Sealing Your Floor

If your problem is not structural, you may be able to use epoxy to seal the baseboards so that the basement leak is stopped. There are some products available that you can put on the bottom of the foundation that will seal the floor. You will want to be sure that you follow any instructions on how to do this because you will not want the baseboard sealing to wear off.

Another cause of basement leak is water that has seeped into the wall or carpeting. Water can penetrate the padding and mould can start forming. There is one product available that is waterproof, mould and mildew resistant, and odour resistant. It can be sprayed on to fix any problem. If your basement is wet, you may have to clean it with a mop and water hose as well as a water-absorbent sponge.

Prevent Damage From Water On Basement Floor

You may have noticed that a leak in your basement is not causing any problems, but you may be surprised at how much damage can happen. as the water gets in. You should try to stop this by not allowing any water to come in. If the baseboard is not properly sealed, there may be a crack in the foundation, which is easy for water to enter. So, why is the basement leaking from the floor? There are several possible causes, but if you find a solid leak, it is important to take the proper action before it becomes too large to handle.

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.

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!
