Controlling Moisture Under Your HomeIf you find standing water under your house during periods of heavy precipitation, it indicates a problem that should be remedied quickly before it causes more serious and expensive foundation damage. Because water is heavy compared to soil, water will always reach any crack. Moisture will seep into your home through the cove joint, cracks in basement walls, and sometimes over the top of the foundation wall. Sometimes moisture enters your house through a clogged floor drain or leaky basement window.
Water entering your house will damage anything it comes in contact with, leaving stains on walls, floors and anything you may have stored. After a time, the seepage will eventually cause wooden joists and beams to weaken and rot. Such damage to the overall integrity and structure of your home can lower the market value of your home. Moreover, moisture fosters the development of mold and mildew which can make your family sick.
