Water can get into your basement or crawlspace in two ways outside of a plumbing failure such as a water heater, pipe leak or when it rains or during heavy snow melt. Seepage water is the water that can get into your basement or crawlspace when it rains hard, or from heavy snowmelt. The water can get in through cracks or other spaces in your basement floor and where the floor meets the walls. It can also get in through the walls themselves. Sewage water can also back up into your basement during heavy rains if the municipal sewer system in your area becomes full. When this happens, your private drain becomes full and can eventually back up into your home. Many homes have both issues! Goode Plumbing can help with both of these.
