Water Is Essential for Life – But Too Much Could Spell Death for Your Home Basement
For folks in East Alabama, we’re very used to the water. Many of us grew up spending time with our
families, going to the river, or the lake, or the beach. Water is as much a part of our lives as it is
for folks in any other part of the country. And for our livelihood, it’s essential. But for the health
and stability of your home’s foundation, it could be the very thing that brings it all crashing down.
Standing water and excess moisture is especially dangerous in basements, where it can cause a whole host
of problems if left unattended. One of the most prevalent of problems that arise from excess moisture in
basements is mold, and mold can be the beginning of a total foundational erosion from your basement. But
how does the water get in the basement, and stay in the basement long enough to form mold?
Water Leaks and Poor Drainage Are the Tag Team #1 Cause of Moldy Basements
When it rains, water runs off your roof, drips down the side of your house, exits through downspouts,
or lands directly in your yard. Most homes have at least some sort of drainage system in place, but it’s
often not enough to keep water from leaking towards the lowest part of your home. If you have a
basement, water and excess moisture will literally gravitate there every time it rains. Plumbing leaks
are also a major cause of water leaks, and these will almost always find their way to your basement,
regardless of whatever kind of drainage system you have in place for rainfall. It’s almost impossible to
prevent moisture from accumulating in your basement. And once it’s there, it’s only a matter of time
before you have mold spores forming on walls, on wood, on almost any sedentary surfaces.
