Basement Waterproofing in Villanova, PA
Flooded basements originate from four sources
1.) Surface water running down foundation walls.
2.) 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.
3.) Groundwater in water-saturated soils being pushed into the basement by hydrostatic pressure.
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. This can only occur if the perimeter foundation drain system is connected to the municipal sewer system, however.
How much time do you spend thinking about your basement and whether it’s up to all of the necessary codes and structural necessities? For many Villanova homeowners, the answer is “very little” or “none”. In the event of a basement flooding, you’ll certainly wish you had spent more time concerning yourself with it. Because of what is often stored in the basement, like old photographs and important financial documents, nothing is more frustrating than coming home and finding it wet. Water can damage more than just your stored possessions, including pieces of your house itself like walls and flooring. Plain and simple, a flooded basement spells disaster!
