First Steps in Waterproofing Your Basement
The first step in trying to remedy the problem is to figure out what type of problem you are dealing with and where the water, if any, is coming from.
Check for pools of water on the floor or damp spots on the wall.
Check the condition of the concrete and look for condensation on water pipes. Insulate water pipes.
Get a good basement ventilation system keep the windows in the basement closed on days when the relative humidity is higher than 40-45% outside.
Seal any cracks or crevices and use a sealer on the walls and floor to help reduce the effects of moisture entering from the porous masonry.
Make sure exterior downspouts are redirecting water away from the foundation of the house.
All of these steps will help alleviate minor water problems. If, however, the problem is more severe, you will need to contact a Vulcan waterproofing professional for more involved solutions.
