A lot of homeowners want to know how moisture got into this area to begin with. Typically speaking, seepage will be able to get into this space: through the cove joint (where the wall and floor meet), over the top of the foundation (grading problem), up through a clogged or deteriorating floor drain, through a weak or brittle window seal, through wall or floor cracks, or it could be from a plumbing problem from inside of the home. There are many ways moisture can get inside, and at St. Louis Basement Pros, we have the solution for each entry way.
