Why is My Basement Wall Wet?


Are the Walls of Your Basement Wet, Damp, Or Moldy?

 

Ah, the dreaded wet basement walls…

It’s almost like scene from a horror movie…the walls of your basement seem to be bleeding, but, you can’t find the cause.

And, it just keeps coming. Water dripping down the wall, bringing with it mold and mildew.

When you find that your basement walls are dripping with water or covered in moisture, you have a problem on your hands.

 

How Does Water Get Inside the Basement?

The cause of your wet walls may be different than what you’ve been led to believe.

Many sites on the internet, and not-so-great contractors, will tell you that its simply a humidity issue. So they usually suggest:

  • Running a dehumidifier (this is a good practice in general, but it won’t fix the problem.
  • Applying the ever-failing “waterproofing paint” (this always leads to disaster and huge bills – to learn why, click here)

 

Why do they fail?

Because the source of the “Wetness” is water that is coming in from outside the home.

  • The water pushes it’s way inside of your basement walls from the outside (the ground around your home fills with water when it rains).
  • If the outside walls are not waterproofed and secured, cracks and leaks develop.
