Check that the ground outside slopes away from your house at least 1 inch vertically for every 1 foot of horizontal travel for a distance of 4 feet. And add downspout extensions if needed so gutters drain 4 feet away from the house onto splash blocks.
Then make sure downspout runoff isn't pooling or percolating into soil near the foundation during a storm, and that downspout seams aren't leaking; installing downspouts seams-out makes this check easy.
Some houses on hilly sites have a swale a shallow trench with gently sloping sides and a gravel bed covered by topsoil and grass. The swale catches runoff, channeling it past the house or off to other drain systems. Unfortunately, a swale can eventually clog with silt. So can the original underground footing drains buried at the base of your foundation.
