Basement Waterproofing in Lionville, PA
Most Lionville homes have basements, and most of these are at a substantial risk for flooding. Has your basement ever flooded? If your answer is no, then you’ve been lucky so far but your luck may not last much longer. A freak basement flood happens more often than you think, and is typically is caused by one or two of the most-common reasons.
Potential causes of basement flooding:
#1 Surface water running down foundation walls.
#2 Groundwater in water-saturated soils being pushed into the basement by hydrostatic pressure.
#3 Sanitary sewer water from a combined municipal storm/sanitary sewer system backing up into the home’s drain system, causing sewer water to come up through sink drains and floor drains on lower levels.
#4 Storm sewer water from the municipal storm sewer system backing up into the home’s existing perimeter foundation drain and leaking into the basement. It is important to note that this can only occur if the perimeter foundation drain system is connected to the municipal sewer system.
If you just experienced a wet basement for the first time, it is imperative to determine if the water problems are going to recur or if it was a one-time event. Unfortunately, it’s often discovered by our experts that this will continue to happen if it isn’t taken care of quickly. Your precious photos and financial documents stored in your basement are only the beginning of the problems you’ll experience if a flood does happen. A rotting foundation is only the beginning!
