As a homeowner, you are likely wanting to know how and why moisture is able to get into this area. Water always finds the path of least resistance, and it will eventually make its way into your home any way that it can. It can get in over the top of the foundation because of issues with lawn grading. It can also seep in through wall or floor cracks, or come up through a clogged floor drain. The moisture can also get inside through the cove joint, and this is where the wall and floor meet. As you can see, there are a number of ways in which seepage can get in, and once inside, it can cause many different problems.
