Water seepage is when water or moisture finds its way into your crawl space and causes a slew of problems from a musty smell emanating from the space to deterioration of the foundation. Thus, water seepage is something that must be controlled.
So what's the best way to control water seepage and keep your Charlottesville home's basement dry?

The best way to control water seepage is through prevention. Homeowners should make sure that gutters and downspouts drain water away from the foundation and that leaking area of the home are repaired. Also, the foundation grading must slope away from the house.
Windows should also be properly sealed and, if a basement has concrete flooring, it needs a working drain.
You can also add a dehumidifier in the basement, and a sump pump (with back up) installed in the lowest lying area.
There are many more ways to prevent water seepage, and if you can't figure out what's causing it, or if you need assistance in fixing the situation, you should call Seal-Tite to ensure proper steps are being taken to keep your basement moisture-free.
