1.Mold Infestation Mold typically begins to grow
in 24 to 48 hours in an untreated moist
environment.

2. Window Wells The average galvanized window
well is 36 wide with a 12 projection
consequently, the area into which rain can enter
the window well is 3 ft2.Usually these drain
well, but in the case of heavy, continuous rain
can cause basement leaks.

3. Electric Bills Damp air costs more money to
both heat and cool so when your basement is
damp,youre wasting your money on your electric
bills.

4. Basement Floors Basement floors are thin
layers of poured concrete,typically 2-4 inches in
depth,that have no structural role in the homes
foundation.The same hydrostatic pressure that
forces water into the basement also presses
upward on the basement floor and can cause it to
crack.These cracks will allow water to seep into
the basement when the water table rises.

5.Tie Rod Holes During the original construction
of your home,in many cases,the concrete forms
were hand-built from wood and held together
during the cerment pour with 5/8 steel rods.These
rods are placed in two horizontal rows,every 1.5
feet,with one row about a foot off the ground and
the other 4 feet above that. When your home is
finished the rods or are removed,leaving holes
that can often leak to basement leaks.

6. Sump Pump Failure The Department of Housing
and Development estimates the average life
expectancy for a sump pump is 10 years. The goal
of a sump pump is to collect unwanted water,and
discharge it away from the home.But when not
properly maintained or installed,it wont work
correctly. A large amount of water all at once
can also be too much for it to handle,in which
case a waterproofing system will assist the sump
pump in filtering water out and away from your
home.
