Few things can adversely affect your foundations’ ability to drain. This effect can be due to clogging in part from leaves and various other debris or having drainage from flower beds in a not ideal spot. Construction can also be a factor from new constructing changing the environment to things not being done correctly in the first place. Even the soil in your area may be an issue when it comes to drainage.
