That should not be happening. It sounds like you may have a problem. I would contact a Contractor and have them take a look. I would hate to tell you something, then something go wrong.....especially when I can see it. It could be a simple fix. Be smart and have someone take a look. You try looking under the "find" button on Hometalks homepage to find a contractor in your area.
John has nailed it. If this is not a serious problem now, it can become one.
Cinderblocks are pourous. Any moisture on the outside of the block will be sucked thru and show up on the inside of the block. Not a technical explanation, but hopefully a simple visual one.
In general, there are two fixes to water leaking in. The easier one and therefore the less
The other concept, which is usually more involved and thus more costly, is to correct the problem from the outside. This means digging out around the base of the basement walls/foundation and correcting the issue there. This is generally the best, long-term fix.
Visualize having a 30' boat with a leak in the sidewall down in the cabin. There are steps you can take in the cabin to plug the leak. But although you can't see water leaking into the cabin and getting your rack wet, you don't know where else that water is going. Over the long term, that water can rot out the inside hull of the boat.
Not much different than your house. Water is the enemy and you need to keep things dry. There are potential scenarios where it is impractical to fix it on the outside. In those cases, more involved steps can be taken to fix it from the inside.
Don't hesitate to contact me and I can refer you to the right folks to assist you with your issue. Tim
