Why Is There Suddenly Water in My Crawl Space or Basement?

If you suddenly start to see a substantial amount of water in your crawl space or basement, you may be running into several different problems. Most commonly, this problem happens because of heavy rain, which may come into your crawl space or basement and start to pool.

Typically, that’s why you have a sump pump. It’s an extended measure to help with unexpected basement or crawl space flooding in case it happens in your area due to circumstances beyond your control.

However, this significant influx of water can still be a problem. If you have an encapsulated crawl space, but water has suddenly shown up out of nowhere, check for a plumbing leak or other leak. If you still can’t find the source of the water or your sump pump isn’t able to pump it all out, contact JES for a free inspection.
