A Wet, Constant Problem
With the basement leaking through the cracks in the walls every time it rained, they would worry about how bad the standing water in their basement would get. From that, it led to high humidity levels and mold growth.
What's worse than a wet carpet? Not much. The rainwater would get caught under the basement carpet. It would stain it, and create a musty odor which the homeowners smelt all throughout their home.
The Beginning of the Process
To start the demo, the old carpet is pulled back to prepare to install the WaterGuard system. This system is placed around the perimeter of the basement to catch water and direct it to the sump pump.
Ready to Install
This WaterGuard system is a French drain installed below the floor slab but above the foundation footing, keeping it out of the "mud zone" and preventing clogging.
Leave No Trace
The beauty of this internal drainage system is that once covered, you won't even know it's there. It's removing water right underneath your feet.
New Wall Panels Installed
These walls are hard a durable, the vinyl surface is even washable. Also, since the material is not organic, mold won't grow on them or the foam insulation behind your walls.
These homeowners can finally enjoy their basement without having to worry about pesky water leaking into their brand new finished basement. The products that were used ensure that there will be no water for years to come.
