Basement Problem Signs in Danville

Whether you are in your Danville basement regularly or hardly visit this area at all, there are several issues you might notice that indicate your basement needs to be waterproofed or repaired. The most common problem signs to be aware of include water leaks, condensation, mold growing in your basement or other areas of your home, efflorescence on concrete basement walls or floor, and musty odors in the basement or throughout your home. When you first notice these and other problems, it’s important to reach out to your local basement experts as soon as possible to stop these issues in their tracks.


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.

Efflorescence on basement walls or in your home's crawl space


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 Danville

The aforementioned problem signs can be the result of many causes. While internal sources like a faulty sump pump, leaking water heater, or burst plumbing pipe could be to blame, the most common reason behind your basement problems is the soil under and around your Danville home. Soil dug up from the construction of your home is replaced after the basement walls are built. This loose clay and loam soil can easily become overly saturated and create an artificial water table. This water in the soil leads to hydrostatic pressure that can cause cracking and leaking basement walls.

flooding from rain

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.
