Basement Problem Signs in Northern Virginia

Basement problems are not something to take lightly, as they can impact the health and safety of your home and family. Some issues might also signal foundation damage, so it can be difficult to distinguish what’s going on in your Northern Virginia home’s basement. However, some typical basement problem signs you should be aware of include leaking walls, efflorescence, mold, condensation, high humidity, wet drywall, and flooding. Don’t let these problems grow into major hazards. Contact our team for help and a free estimate right away.

Condensation

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

Efflorescence

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.

When drywall is damaged by flooding water, it can discolor and become a breeding ground for mold, rot, and mildew.

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 Northern Virginia

The aforementioned problem signs might have a wide variety of sources. However, the diverse and problematic clay and silty soil under and surrounding your Northern Virginia home is the most typical cause of basement troubles. The dirt that was removed during the construction of your home is restored when the basement walls are built. The clay bowl effect and the establishment of an artificial water table might result from oversaturating this loose soil. Furthermore, basement walls may crack, bow, and leak as a result of the hydrostatic pressure that the water in the soil creates. Additionally, interior elements like a faulty sump pump, leaking water heater, or leaking plumbing pipe could be to blame.

yard grading and flooding issues

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.

Sump Pump Issues

Basement sump pump issues can lead to water problems which are a mess to clean up and can damage your home.
