Basement Problem Signs in St. Louis

The most obvious signs that something is wrong in your St. Louis home are leaking foundation walls, a leaking basement, and flooding. Apart from visible water, other problem signs you might notice include basement floor cracks, mold growth, pest infestation, and musty odors in your basement and throughout your home. Some of these can be confused with or even co-occur with other damage including foundation problems, so it is important to have your basement and home professionally inspected by the waterproofing services team at Foundation Recovery Systems. 

Causes of Basement Damage in St. Louis

The aforementioned trouble signals can have a wide variety of sources. While interior elements like a broken sump pump or burst pipe may be to blame, the typical cause of basement problems in St. Louis homes is the soil under and around the building. The dirt that was removed during the construction of your home is replaced when the basement walls are built. The clay bowl effect and the establishment of an artificial water table might result from oversaturating this loose silty loam or clay loam soil. Foundation walls may crack and leak as a result of the hydrostatic pressure that the water in the soil creates. 

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in St. Louis

Every home in St. Louis is unique and requires its own basement waterproofing solutions. After a free inspection from one of our waterproofing services experts, they may recommend any number of products to keep your basement and home dry. These include an interior drainage system to intercept leaking water, a sump pump to collect this water and pump it away, a dehumidifier to control moisture and humidity, and a wall vapor barrier to further address moisture intrusion. Each solution comes with a long-term, nationally backed, transferrable warranty, and they are designed to work together to keep your home permanently dry. FRS is not a one-size-fits-all basement waterproofing company.
