KEEP YOUR BASEMENT DRY
When it comes to their basements, many homeowners are content to take an “out of sight, out of mind” attitude towards their upkeep. And while it is easy to understand this particular approach, it is also important to note that it is not the best route to take. It is vitally important that you keep your basement in good condition! Don’t forget that your basement helps reinforce the foundation of your home, and can even directly affect it. A dry basement can keep your foundation solid and free of cracks. A wet basement, on the other hand, can speed up the deterioration process. This is just one of the reasons why you should keep an eye out for water in your basement and consider investing in basement waterproofing. Check it often in order to ensure that your home’s foundation is strong and your family is safe.
Why is my basement wet?
One of the most common questions we get at Aquatech Waterproofing is why basements end up with water in them. The answer is that there are a wide variety of potential reasons that could be behind the presence of water in your basement. One of the most common reasons is groundwater that finds cracks in your basement walls and the walls of your foundation and winds up in your basement. To help reduce the likelihood of finding your basement walls damp or even stumbling upon standing water that could damage your property.

Why basement waterproofing?
One of the most important parts of owning a home is ensuring that the building and its foundation are well cared for and well maintained. One of the most important parts of your home is the basement. While many of us tend to ignore the basement except when something goes wrong with the water heater or the circuit breaker, especially when it is unfinished, it should be noted that the condition of the basement can literally make or break your home. That means that you should regularly check your basement for signs of water damage or water presence, and invest in quality basement waterproofing services to avoid the issue altogether.
What are some signs of water presence in my basement?
It can be a bit confusing to determine whether or not there is water in your basement. After all, we are not necessarily referring to inches of standing water along your basement floor. You can have a water problem without any standing water at all. Take the time to look around your basement carefully for signs of dampness by walking around looking at the walls for discolored streaks or wet patches. The same goes for the floor. You should also look for cracks in your foundation as this is one of the most common ways that water enters basements.
