Basement Problem Signs in Baltimore

Basement damage can show itself in a variety of forms and often co-occur or be confused with other problems like foundation issues. There are several common basement problem signs you should keep your eyes peeled for such as visible leaks and flooding, wet carpet, wet drywall, condensation, high humidity, musty basement smells, mold, and efflorescence. At the first sign of any of these troubles, it’s important to contact our basement waterproofing professionals at JES as soon as possible. 


Basement condensation can be a huge problem in many basements. In fact, even if you think you don’t have problems with basement condensation, you may actually have a slightly elevated level of humidity in your basement that’s high enough to cause serious concerns like mold and mildew.

This basement's efflorescence and leak stains is due to a basement moisture problem.


If you’ve ever seen a chalky, white powder on your basement walls, you may not have known what you were looking at. Professionals refer to this residue as “efflorescence,” and it’s more of a warning sign than you might have thought.

Wet drywall in your basement means there's a water leak

Wet Drywall

Wet drywall can be a problem that’s difficult to find and even more difficult to fix. The solution of ripping out the drywall and replacing it doesn’t typically work because your new drywall will probably become wet quickly too.

Causes of Basement Damage in Baltimore

Basements in Baltimore can sustain water intrusion and damage for a variety of reasons. Because the basement typically houses plumbing and appliances, things like a leaking pipe, leaky water heater, or sump pump issues are internal sources that can lead to damage. The most common causes of damage, however, have to do with how the area’s soil and weather interact. Even though Baltimore’s soil is generally deep and well-drained, it could easily become inundated with regular, heavy precipitation. The saturated soil can create an artificial water table, contribute to the clay bowl effect, and lead to hydrostatic pressure that can result in basement wall cracks and leaks.

Flood Damage To Foundation

Poor Foundation Drainage

Overflowing gutters, clogged gutters, poor drainage grading and ineffective yard grading contribute to a wet basement. Then the water will drain next to your basement foundation, instead of away from it – then basement leaking begins.
