Why Basement Gets Wet in Michigan?

Wet 
 Basement in Michigan
  • Window Well: A window well is one of the main reasons why unwanted water makes its way into the basement. If it doesn’t have proper drainage or the drain is clogged or blocked because of debris, or, the well is not accurately installed, water cumulates in the well. During heavy rain that water seeps into your basement. Even if your window is defect-free, the pooled water in the well will start leaking into your basement.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure: Our ground is saturated with water to a certain extend. The level of saturated soil beneath the ground is called the water table. During heavy rain or melting snow, the soil absorbs the water. After being fully saturated when the soil can no longer absorb water, the water table rises. As a consequence hydrostatic pressure (water pressure) forms, pushing the water through your basement walls and floor.
  • Lateral Pressure: When your house was built the soil was dug and backfilled. Therefore the soil surrounding your house is not fully compact. The less-dense the soil is the more it can absorb water. After heavy rain, absorbing a lot of water, the soil starts to expand and creates lateral pressure (pressure from sideway) against the foundation. It causes cracks in the basement walls and water easily leaks through.
  • Faulty Plumbing: If any pipe is leaky inside your home, it can result in the pipe bursting and ultimately flood your basement.
  • Inadequate Sump Pump: The purpose of the sump pump is to pump away water from the floor and foundation so that the water doesn’t gather under the floor. But due to poor maintenance, it fails to divert the water away, resulting in water leaking into the basement.
