Sump Pits

If you have water in your basement, it is important to have a professional install a waterproofing system to keep your basement dry. The professionals at Iowa Home Restoration & Repair, LLC has the products and solutions to keep water out of your basement.

Water can cause a lot of damage to your home. It can cause you to lose living space, ruin personal possessions, and it can cause mold and mildew. Some of the ways that water can enter your basement are:

  • Cracks in basement floor – The soil under your foundation may not adequately absorb groundwater. This will create hydrostatic pressure and push the water through any cracks that are in your basement floor.
  • Excess moisture inside walls – Moisture buildup can cause condensation. This buildup can seep into your basement and cause mold and structural damage.
  • Cracks in walls and mortar joints – Too much moisture in the soil leads to hydrostatic pressure, creating wall cracks which can cause the water to enter your basement.
  • Over the footer – Water can enter through cracks between the footer and adjoining wall.
  • Under the footer – There may be small gaps between the footer and basement floor where excess water can penetrate the cracks.

Let the experts at Iowa Home Restoration and Repair inspect your home and offer you the basement waterproofing system to keep your basement dry. Part of our waterproofing system includes the installation of a sump pit.
