Basement Waterproofing in Bloomington, IN

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.
Leaking water from basement walls is an alarming sign for homeowners, and can be the result of more damage that the eye can see.
Discovering a flooded basement can be a very upsetting thing to discover — especially if it’s never flooded that badly in the past. Our trained experts specialize in wet basement repairs of all kinds and can provide a great solution for you.
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.
Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Bloomington
The range of products IFS uses to keep your basement permanently dry is one of the main reasons IFS stands out from the pack. Products like below-floor drains, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and vapor barriers have been tested and proven for nearly three decades in homes like yours. Each product comes with a long-term warranty and works in tandem to keep your basement dry. Even faced with the occasional flooding Bloomington receives, you can rest easy knowing your basement is protected and you no longer need to stress about mold growth.
Indiana Foundation Service has been using SafeDri™ pumps all over Indiana, and they’ve proven their value time and again.
Preventing leaks and mold growth is essential for any basement. Given the naturally damp environment of a basement, installing a vapor barrier on a wall is essential for protecting the room.
A Grated Drainage Pipe resembles half of a basement drainage pipe – like our BasementGutter™ system – with a grated opening fitted snugly on top.
