Six Common Causes of Basement Moisture

 

Before we address common causes of how water gets into basements, we first want to quickly discuss the importance of stopping water and getting moisture out of basements. A wet basement can cause:

  • The growth of bacteria and mold
  • Structural damage to the home
  • A habitable breeding ground for pests

It is common for basements in the Staten Island area to experience excessive levels of basement moisture. You may be asking yourself—how do I look for excess moisture?
In some cases, it is easier to spot than others, but common warning signs include:

  • Damp or humid air
  • Odor of mildew or mold
  • Standing water on the floor
  • Stained or blistering walls
  • Ring of dampness on concrete wallsa
  • Condensation on floors and walls
  • Deteriorating wood or carpeting
