Basement Problem Signs in Columbus

Damage in your Columbus basement can reveal itself in many different ways, and it frequently coexists with or is mistaken for other concerns like foundation difficulties. You should be vigilant of various basement problem signs including obvious leaks and floods, wet carpet, wet drywall, condensation, excessive humidity, musty basement odors, mold, and efflorescence. It’s crucial to get in touch with Ohio Basement Authority’s basement waterproofing specialists as soon as any of these issues appear, as they will only get worse, more hazardous, and more costly to fix over time. 

Causes of Basement Damage in Columbus

There is a host of reasons why basements in Columbus can experience water infiltration and damage. Basements are usually home to plumbing and appliances, so internal sources of damage include leaking pipes, water heater leaks, and sump pump problems. Your home also may lack proper foundation drainage. However, the interactions between the local soil and weather are what commonly cause leaks and other damage. Columbus’ soil is generally silty, but it also has clay and sand elements mixed in. It can readily become overwhelmed or flooded by the region’s frequent, heavy rains, especially in the summer and fall. The clay bowl effect, artificial water table creation, and hydrostatic pressure caused by the saturated soil all can cause cracks and leaks in basement walls.
