Mention the words “flooded basement” and most homeowners are sent into a panic. Even if you’ve never been the victim of a wet or flooded basement, the possibility lies with even the most protected homes. While most causes of major basement flooding come without warning, there are a few things you can do to protect your basement from complete ruin. Start by looking for evidence of a water leak with these tell-tale signs.
- Changes in your water bill
- Constant condensation on windows
- Persistent musty smell
- Dark spots or wet spots that have since dried
- Leaking well windows
- Graded landscape
- Faulty gutters and downspouts
