Basement Problem Signs in Knoxville
In Knoxville, water damage is more likely to occur during the rain season, usually from late March to late August. If water damage does occur in your basement, the problem signs are relatively easy to notice. Keep an eye out for mold, wet stairs, or standing water in your basement. These are red flags that your basement is suffering from excess moisture.
Even problem signs that don’t seem as serious, like condensation or efflorescence are the beginning stages of more intense water damage. These issues will only get worse over time so it’s always a good idea to contact AFS for a free home inspection before problems spiral.
Musty odors and humidity in your basement promote mold growth, pipe corrosion, floor damage, and poor air quality. AFS eliminates moisture at the source for a dry basement.
Efflorescence forms when water seeps in and then evaporates. It’s often a symptom of a larger moisture problem, and while it doesn’t directly harm the structure, addressing the conditions causing efflorescence is critical in maintaining the health of your home.
Finding cracks along your basement floor is worrisome. They often indicate severe damage to the foundation and your home. These problem signs can help you catch the damage early.
What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Knoxville?
Your basement experiences water damage for a number of reasons. Although the issues could be from an internal source (like plumbing floods or improper construction), they usually stem from Knoxville’s wet, humid weather. On average, Knoxville receives 50 inches of rain per year. That’s well above the national average of 28 inches.
High rainfall combined with hot, humid weather, means the ground around your basement stays moist nearly all year-round. Water collects next to your basement walls and puts pressure on the structure. This causes wall and floor cracks, providing water with easy access into your basement. Eventually, your basement is being damaged by leaking water coming from the outside.
