Basement Waterproofing Solutions
Many homeowners have had the unfortunate experience of running down to change the laundry or grab something from storage and discovering pools of standing water in their basement. For Hastings homeowners, it’s a pretty distressing moment, especially if it’s something that hasn’t happened before.
If this has happened to you recently, call SafeBasements™ today. We have more than 30 years of experience keeping homes dry and waterproofing foundations across Hastings, Minnesota, and the entire country with our patented waterproofing products. Our team of waterproofing experts in Hastings can inspect your foundation and basement, determine the source of the water intrusion, and take the necessary steps to make sure your basement stays dry after we’re done.
Causes of Basement Standing Water In Hastings
Any number of foundation issues can lead to water collecting in your basement, so when our waterproofing team comes to your Hastings home, we look for the following:
- Signs of settling foundation (cracks in floors, walls, gaps in window wells)
- Improperly or unsealed crawl spaces
- Poorly pitched or drained soil surrounding the home
- Damage to window or door seals
- Improper or nonexistent drainage situation
Any sudden storm can overwhelm a home’s waterproofing systems from time to time, but routine standing water in a Hastings home’s basement is typically a sign of a major structural issue that will only get worse. Plus, you only want to clean up and dry out your basement once, so at the first sign of standing water in your Hastings basement, contact the SafeBasements team for an inspection.
Common Solutions: Sump Pumps and Drain Tiles
A sump pump is usually recommended to take care of any water that makes its way into a basement. A sump pump is an electric motorized pump that sits in a “sump pit”—a hole in your basement floor—collects water, and pumps it out away from the foundation. If you already have a sump pump and you’re still collecting standing water in your Hastings basement, the pump may need repair or replacement.
Trust a True Professional
At SafeBasements, our proprietary sump pumps were designed using our 30+ years of industry experience. They are used by a variety of waterproofing professionals across the country, so we will always make sure you have the best equipment installed. Or, if you need help directing water to the sump pit, our team may recommend a drain tile solution that will guarantee a dry basement for years to come.
