Wet, moldy, smelly basements are nothing new in Kansas City. While common, they are dangerous, but they can be remedied. Foundation Recovery Systems can help with the best tools, training, and permanent solutions.
Your Kansas City, MO, basement can serve many purposes, from seasonal storage and laundry to additional bedrooms and entertainment space. However, because this area is primarily underground, it is subject to a host of problems. Your basement can leak, flood, and experience mold growth and other issues if it is not properly protected from the typical Kansas City rain and clay soil.
Waterproofing your basement is important to the safety and structural integrity of the rest of your home. Our experienced team at Foundation Recovery Systems has been installing permanent basement waterproofing solutions in Kansas City homes for 30 years, so we know what it takes to keep area basements dry and healthy. Your home can benefit from these customized repairs with long-term, nationally backed warranties too.

Leaks and flooding are the two most obvious problem signs indicating that something is amiss in your Kansas City basement. In addition to obvious water damage, you might also notice cracks in the basement floor, mold, bug infestation, and musty aromas both within the basement and throughout the rest of your home. It is crucial to have your basement and house properly assessed by the team at Foundation Recovery Systems because some of these issues might be mistaken for or even co-occur with other damage, such as foundation problems.
While internal factors like a busted sump pump or burst pipe may be to blame, the soil under and around the structure is usually the root cause of basement issues in Kansas City houses. After the basement walls are constructed, the dirt that was removed is replaced. When this loose clay soil gets overly saturated, which is common with 42 inches of average annual rainfall in Kansas City, the clay bowl effect and the development of an artificial water table may occur. Because of the hydrostatic pressure that the water in the expansive clay soil produces, basement walls may easily leak and crack.
Because your Kansas City home’s basement is unique and is up against its own set of challenges, it will require certain repairs specifically suited for those needs. Our team at Foundation Recovery Systems will customize your basement waterproofing solutions, but some of the products your inspector might suggest include interior drains, a sump pump, a wall vapor barrier, and an energy-efficient dehumidifier. Backup sump pumps also are available, as well as other types of drains and various repairs.
