Basement Problem Signs in Bloomington

The number one enemy of a basement is water. From standing groundwater, condensation, and humidity, water in all its forms must be eliminated and it’s the reason you will notice so many problem signs in your Bloomington home. Inside your basement look for flooding, wet drywall, mold, and cracked floors. Choosing to act quickly once any red flags are discovered makes a huge difference in the severity of the repairs needed. Left untreated, water damage leads to structural problems, and puts your family at risk. Contact the local experts at IFS immediately to repair basement problems before they get worse.  

What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Bloomington?

While water may be the number one reason for the damage, the cause of water intrusion is a bit more complicated. The type of soil in Bloomington ranges from strongly acidic with a loamy, well-drained topsoil, to a very deep, poorly drained subsoil formed in lacustrine sediments. Lacustrine deposits are rocks that formed at the bottom of ancient lakes.  

Regardless of the specific type of soil at your home, both are likely to be the cause of your water invasion. While a plumbing leak could also be in the mix, it’s most likely a combination of the troublesome soil and the above-average rainfall. Bloomington gets an average of 48 inches of rain and 17 inches of snow per year. That’s a lot of water for the problematic soil to contend with, resulting in a wet, leaking basement.
