I have a 32-year-old, split-level home in MN. The basement has a duct routed under the living room slab (1/2 level higher). This duct gets water in it after HEAVY rains or snow melts. I’ve drilled a hole in the duct at the basement level and created a hose system to route the water into the basement’s drain, but obviously, this is not a long-term solution.
I can’t say if the problem is a foundation issue, a drainage issue due to a cracked patio slab right near the living room door, or some combination of everything else.
I’ve got a growing family and am desperately afraid of mold becoming an issue in my home. At this point, I’m really just wondering who to call for an unbiased diagnosis. I’m searching for MN home inspectors, but I’d love any recommendations for local contractors or inspectors from this forum.
Thank you for your help.
