Two main factors cause flooding in crawl spaces and basements.
- The clay bowl effect
- Hydrostatic pressure and wet soils
Flooding in crawl spaces and basements is typical to both new and older homes, and it rarely occurs only once. If flooding has occurred in your house before, you can be sure that it is more than likely to happen again. Water intrusion through the foundation of your home can cause significant damage while allowing mould to grow.
Basement leaks are often caused by two main factors; hydrostatic pressure and the clay bowl effect. Both factors have similar damaging effects, and it is essential to identify the potential cause of basement leaks in your home to take the proper precaution.
