Basement Waterproofing in Bridgeport, Montgomery County
When Bridgeport homeowners experience 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, when the professionals at Waterproofing One come in to investigate it is often discovered that this water issue will continue to happen if it isn’t taken care of. 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 to Montgomery County homeowners, and is typically is caused by one or two of the most common reasons.
These potential flood causes are:
#1 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.
#2 Surface water running down foundation walls.
#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. It is important to note that this can only occur if the perimeter foundation drain system is connected to the municipal sewer system.
As a responsible homeowner, you need to waterproof your basement now, instead of simply hoping a catastrophic flood won’t happen to you.
