The causes of a wet basement in Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin

Did you know you can have water issues in your basement without heavy rains or obvious standing water? It's easy enough to see water coming through a crack in your floor or basement wall, but what's the real cause of your basement water problem?

Why is my basement floor wet in Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin? The clay bowl effect causes a wet basement

The Clay Bowl Effect

Excavated soil that's replaced around a completed foundation isn't as dense and tightly packed as undisturbed soil farther away. As a result, water collects in the soil immediately surrounding the house, putting pressure on foundation walls and causing cracks.

Basement waterproofing - hydrostatic pressure causes a wet basement in Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin

Hydrostatic Pressure

The weight of the water in the soil around the foundation exerts pressure, forcing the water through cracks, gaps, holes, and around windows leading into the basement.


Signs of a basement waterproofing problem

Your damp or wet basement can cause more than just a headache; these issues can create bigger problems like mold, mildew, rot, structural damage, and a variety of health problems. If you've noticed any of the symptoms below, you might have a basement water problem.

  • Wet or damp basement floor
