Can Plumbing Leaks Cause Water in My Basement?

This is one of the more common reasons for water in your basement. If you’re seeing a substantial amount of standing water in a crawl space or basement you thought was well-encapsulated, you should first look for plumbing leaks.

If you have a hard-working sump pump, you may be able to just stop the plumbing leak and allow the sump pump to clean up the flooding. After all, that’s what the sump pump is for. However, there are additional steps you may want to take.

Avoiding moisture, especially in a crawl space, is imperative. That means even after a sump pump has cleaned up the flooding, you may need to use a dehumidifier to keep your home safe and secure. A JES expert can advise you on how to do that.
