Leaking mortar joints
This is a problem that is commonly seen in older homes. When a home is built with a block or masonry brick foundation, it has mortar joints. Over time, these mortar joints can weaken, become very brittle, and they may even start to crumble away and leave small openings in the wall. Water always finds the path of least resistance, and when it comes in contact with these small holes in the mortar, it's going to get inside and make its way into the basement environment. Once here, it will seep down the walls, and it can cause ugly water damage and stains to form. Once the water reaches the floor, it may start to puddle up, or it could ruin whatever may be stored here in this area of the home.
Water in the basement is never a good thing, and it can lead to a variety of serious problems. Moisture here can cause wooden materials to rot, warp, and decay. This includes support beams, floor joists, staircases, banisters, and more. This can endanger the structural integrity of a home and eventually make it uninhabitable if untreated for too long. All of this rotting wood is also attractive to unwanted pests, such as termites, mosquitoes, roaches, snakes, mice, and so on.
