Wet basements are not fun! Flooded basements are a homeowner’s nightmare. If you are suffering from constant worry about the health and safety of your basement, it’s time for a change. If you’ve tried DIY efforts to fix pooling water, cracks in your foundation, leaky basement windows, or high humidity, it’s time to find an experienced, professional waterproofer you can trust. A wet basement wastes valuable living space, damages building materials and stored possessions, pollutes the indoor air, risks the health of those living in the home, and puts your investment in your home at risk. That adds up to considerable risk.

Some customers want to understand why they’re plagued with a leaky basement or humid, musty air in their basement. It helps to realize that Illinois has wonderful water resources, from the Mississippi River in the west, the Ohio and Wabash Rivers in the south, and the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. If you live near these bodies of water, the cycle of winter thaw and river runoff, along with the spring rainy season, may lead to water in your basement multiple times a year. In recent years, Lake Michigan water levels have been at their highest, putting homes in the greater Chicago area especially at risk.
But it doesn't take a once-in-a-decade flood or even a flash flood to ruin your basement. A sudden heavy thunderstorm can dump a lot of rain in a short time and if your basement windows are rusty or the ground is already saturated with water, then your basement is likely to get wet. There are also a number of reasons unrelated to precipitation that cause leaky basements, from plumbing failures to the grading of the land around your foundation. Whatever the reason for a wet basement or foundation, it always makes sense to diagnose the problem and find a solution that prevents further damage.
If you're dealing with a flooded or leaky basement right now, you don’t need to understand why your basement is wet. You just need a permanent fix. The waterproofing experts in the Basement Systems network have helped homeowners across the state of Illinois for decades, by identifying the source of leaks, flooding, groundwater seepage, and musty odors. With a range of waterproofing and moisture control solutions available through Basement Systems, your local dealer will install the right solution for your basement or crawl space.
