Earth soil dampness content around a foundation is influenced by lopsided watering, neighbors watering, slope run-off, and the sun. Commonly, the southwest corner gets the most blazing, evening sun, preparing water out of the mud soil. In the event that drainage is insufficient, water may aggregate, making the dirt swell.

As the chunk twists, even prior to breaking, harm will happen to brick work, Sheetrock, and tile floors.
