There can be many factors that contribute to a wet basement. Some of the causes are bad grading, pour gutter drainage, high water tables, cracks in walls, hydro-static pressure, porous block seepage, sealant failure, settlement, cracks in floor and more. Keep in mind that in many cases what contributed to the problem isn't the solution. There are different types of foundation walls (listed below) and they require different technique(s) to solve the problem.
Sealant failure and/or cracks in wall allow water to penetrate the hollow block and start to fill core. Over time you will notice the different stages ranging from damp spots, staining, minor seepage, to small puddles, pinholes, standing water, and flooding.
Sealant failure and cracks in wall allow water to penetrate the foundation.
Mortar in wall deteriorates allowing water to seep through. This can lead to structural problems. Water can also be seeping through a crack in floor due to Hydro-static pressure.
Mortar between the stones in the wall deteriorates allowing water to seep through. This can lead to structural problems. Water can also be seeping through a crack in floor due to Hydro-static pressure
