Understanding the Common Causes of Basement Moisture

Due to the nature of the space, basement dampness is not uncommon; but that’s not to say it’s not serious. Even just a little bit of moisture near your property’s foundations can be a warning of larger issues to come, which is why basement waterproofing is essential in any building. If you're worried about the issue, there are a number of signs and symptoms that you can keep an eye out for, including water trickling from the walls, condensation, humidity, standing water on the floor, odor of mold, rot, and stains on the walls. But these are just a few of the visible signs of moisture and there are many ways that dampness can enter a space, so being observant is key.

One of the best ways to prevent an issue is to understand the causes, so here we’ll explore some of the most common causes of moisture, highlighting why basement waterproofing is so essential for any property owner.


Condensation is a common issue in basements, but it’s relatively easy to fix. It occurs when warm air hits the cool underground floors and walls – and, as you’ll probably know from high school science class, as warm air cools, moisture forms. The best way to solve this problem is to ensure there’s good airflow in the space. Installing a fan, air conditioner vent or even a dehumidifier can resolve the issue.

Interior water leak

At the first sign of moisture you should try and locate the source. While it could be condensation or something else, there are occasions where a leak has sprung and this will need to be fixed as soon as possible. Leaks may come from the bathroom, bad piping, washing machine or any number of other sources, but the good thing about this problem is that it’s easily solvable – just fix the leak!

Cracks in the foundation

Water will always choose the path of least resistance when it’s trying to move from one place to another. This means that any cracks or weaknesses in your foundations will give damp the perfect opportunity to enter the space and cause damage. Certain structural issues can be the cause of such cracks, but the water itself can also exacerbate the problem. As it builds up it will exert pressure against the walls, therefore weakening them.

There are several ways to solve this problem, such as interior sealing or repairing exertion damage. Either way, you’ll want to consult an expert in basement waterproofing.

Poor gutter system

Guttering is a great method for draining any rainwater away from your property; however, any faults in them can cause big problems. If gutters are missing, damaged or clogged, wetness can accumulate in the soil around your foundations, which will eventually enter your basement.

These are just a few of the many ways that moisture can damage your property. While they are all solvable, fixing a problem is often more expensive and time-consuming than prevention. This is why basement waterproofing is an essential part of construction and should not be overlooked.
