What are the brown stains on my wall?

Brown stains, especially on block or poured concrete walls, are a sign of acid damage. The clay outside your home is very acidic, and when the water leaks into your basement, it draws that acidity with it. Your wall acts as a filter, holding this acid back and allowing the “clean” water into your basement. Acid damage leads to lower wall deterioration. If you notice ANY signs of this nature, we have the information you need to know about the situation.
