Signs of Basement Water Problems in Your NJ Home
Learn About Common New Jersey Wet Basement Problems & How to Fix Them
When you think about water in the basement, you probably picture flooding from heavy rain or a burst pipe with significant and readily apparent water damage. But your basement doesn't need to be flooded to be damaged by water.
Most of the time, basement water damage is not the result of flooding and is not always easy to notice. Basement water and mold can hide under flooring, behind drywall, and in other out-of-sight areas.
But there are basement water damage signs that you can look for. If you see any of these signs, the sooner you get the problem addressed, the less time the damage has time to spread. Here are key basement water problems and damage signs that you need to keep an eye out for.

Why Basement Water is a Problem
Water in the basement is a constant threat. Building materials in your basement, like wood, drywall, and even concrete, are porous and absorb water, leading to rotted wood, property damage, and a weakened foundation.
On top of that, a wet basement is a breeding ground for mold. The resulting mold spores can irritate and even cause allergies for you and your family. All of this is why it's crucial that you spot basement water problems early before there is severe damage.
