Keeping your basement dry can be difficult in some homes especially if your yard regularly floods when it rains. If you are experiencing pooling water in your basement, you probably need to address your exterior drainage issues.
The whole area needs to be taken into account, and a custom solution needs to be designed for your space to properly drain off excess water.
You might be wondering how water in your yard can lead to water in your basement. The two issues are often interrelated because standing water in your yard seeps down into the ground and over time this compromises your home's foundation. Cracks in your basement's walls and floors start to form, and eventually the water from your yard seeps into your basement. You might not see any water in your basement yet, or even see cracks in your walls or floors, but if your yard has issues draining after a rain storm, it is only a matter of time until water gets into your basement.
The close relationship between a flooded yard and a wet basement makes exterior draining an important facet of your home's health. If you notice standing water in your yard after it rains, you should act to resolve the issue. The longer you allow water to pool in your yard the more damage will be done to your home's foundation over time.
