Long Island New York is exactly what the name implies – an Island surrounded by water. This water is one of the reasons people choose to live and work on Long Island and construct their homes and buildings. But the price they pay for living on Long Island is the water that saturates the ground underneath and around their basements.

Hydrostatic pressure will build around a basement that is situated in a ground where excessive water is present. This condition is aggravated during periods of heavy rains which adds to the water in the ground. The concurrence of heavy snow and rain on saturated soil often leads to water leaks, puddles and flooding in Long Island basements, destroying furnishings and belongings and commonly leading to elevated molds that create an unhealthy environment.
