Urgently need help with leaking basement
Im sorry if this is not the right section to post this but wasnt sure where to put it. My wife and I bought this house in the spring and havent had any problems up untill the other day, we had a fair bit of snow and in the span of 1-2 days it all melted because it got really warm and to top it all off its been raining. Now there is water seeping into the basement and the whole house stinks of mold, I'm really not sure what to do, all I can think is that maybe a sump pump would fix the problem but I dont know much about it - problem is I dont have the money to pay someone 1000+ to install it so I'll have to do it myself but before I do I need to be sure that this is the right course of action.
As you can see by the photos the water is coming in on the one wall, on the other side of that wall is a dirt crawl space that the rest of the house sits on, I dont know if the water is just comming in through that one spot on the wall or of its seeping in all along it, one of the photos shows a few spots on the floor where it looks like water is trying to make its way up through which is why I thought a sump pump might work.
Any advice you guys could offer would be greatly appreciated.
