Water will make its way into a basement through the window when the well has a clogged drain, or no drain installed whatsoever. When it rains, or when there is a melting now on the lawn, the water will get into the window well. If there is nowhere else for it to go, it will eventually break through the seal on the window and get into the basement environment. Once inside, it will leak down the walls and puddle up on the floor. This can cause serious staining on the walls, floors, and it can lead to the formation of black mold on the surfaces the water comes in contact with.
This moisture will also cause damage to wooden materials below the home, including support beams, floor joists, staircases, banisters, and to whatever else made of wood that you may have stored here. This rotting wood smells bad, and it can also endanger the structural integrity of your home since some of these materials are responsible for helping to hold up the weight of your house. Also, this deteriorating wood can be very attractive and inviting to unwanted critters, such as termites, roaches, snakes, mosquitoes, and so on.
To remedy the situation, our team of certified waterproofing professionals can come to your home, evaluate the situation, and then determine what the best course of action is for preventing additional damage from a leaking window. We can stop the problem from outside, meaning a drain would need to be put in the window well, or the clogged portion of the drain will need to be taken care of. From inside the home, sump pumps and perimeter drains can be installed to handle any water which may get inside.
