What can my basement or cellar damages mean?
If you have a crack or damage to your basement it can be tempting to try and sort it out yourself. You might try to seal it or paint over it, but without sourcing what the main cause of the issue is the problem will only come back worse in the near future. To make sure that you aren’t just covering up a problem that will get worse over time, it is a good idea to get in touch with a professional who can sort it out for you. The reason for the crack or damages could be a deeply rooted problem such as a serious foundation problem or hydrostatic pressure issue that is likely to cause damage in the future.
How to avoid basement or cellar damages
Clear your gutter of potential overflow
Gutters and downpipes can, unfortunately, overflow – particularly if they are quite old or if it has been bad weather that has clogged them with leaves and debris. If this is the case, water will instead move to the lowest part of your property – your basement. Avoid this by getting rid of any potential debris that gets in the way of your flow of water.
Check if your sump pump needs maintenance
If you have a sump pump to avoid damp in your basement then it could mean that it needs vital maintenance. Your sump pump should have an alarm to let you know if it is not functioning properly so make sure you test it often.
Check for leaking or burst pipes
If you find that a pipe is dripping then it could be a sign of blockage and is important to get it fixed before it bursts. Ensure that you don’t flush items such as makeup or baby wipes down the toilet or sink and throw larger items in the bin. This can help to avoid your pipes from becoming clogged.
