Basements are prime source of moisture
Water seepage is caused by cracks in the concrete. Stress cracks occur in all concrete structures. The floor to wall joints open up and floor cracks appear. There is also a possibility that the exterior waterproofing done when the house was constructed has deteriorated and the drainage system has failed. The hydrostatic pressure then pushes water through the cracks.
Thus, the basement can be the source of moisture in in your building, as these rooms have been known to let in over 15 gallons each day in the event of serious seepage - a problem, that if untreated, can cause structural damage to your property.
Waterproof the basement before it is completed
Waterproofing should be considered before finishing a building's construction. Particularly, the basement should be sealed, including the walls and the slab. It is crucial to protect what is most prone to water seepage.
