Basement Waterproofing Services in Minneapolis-St. Paul

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of heading down to your basement and discovering puddles of standing water, you know the series of headaches that follows: cleaning and drying floors, carpet, and possessions, removing odors, and, hopefully, looking for the source of the problem.

At SafeBasements™, we have spent 30 years mitigating standing water problems in basements across Minneapolis-St. Paul. We use our own sump pumps, drain tile systems, dehumidifiers, and other products—developed and patented over decades of industry experience—to create a permanent, multifaceted solution to your basement water problem.

Causes of Basement Standing Water

In the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, standing water in basements is a particularly common problem due to the intense amount of rain and snow we get throughout the year. While one-off deluges can overload sump pumps and produce standing water, typically standing water in a basement means there is a serious structural issue.

No matter where you notice standing water in your basement, the Minneapolis-St. Paul SafeBasements team can identify the source and find the solution. Our basement waterproofing experts will look for the following sources of water intrusion:

  • Foundation cracks
  • Evidence of foundation settlement
  • Unsealed/improperly sealed crawl space
  • Window well leaks
  • Poor/nonexistent drainage systems
  • Property pitch/drainage

Sump Pumps and Other Solutions

Depending on what we find, our basement waterproofing team in Minneapolis-St. Paul may recommend a sump pump, dehumidifier, crawl space encapsulation, drain tile—or any combination of these tried-and-true solutions.

Typically, the best solution for standing water in Minneapolis-St. Paul basements is a sump pump. This is a small machine that sits in a hole called a “sump pit.” Our SafeBasements team creates a sump pit that is completely sealed to avoid any hazardous gasses leaking out of the soil, and our sump pump will kick on automatically when water flows into the pit. The sump pump pushes all the water away from your foundation, keeping your basement floors dry 24/7.

Analysis of water in basement in Eden Prairie, MN

We had water in our basement and Derek came out to look at it. After reviewing he determined the water was coming from our water softner and used the bypass mode to prevent additional water from getting into our basement. He advised that I needed a plumber. He was honest and forthright and helped me even though it did not bring any service to SafeBasements. He would not accept any type of payment. I will definitely use this truthful company if I need their services for anything in the future.
