Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Submerged Basement in Livermore, KY
This basement in Livermore would become submerged every time it rains causing mold and water damage to its walls and floors. The corners of the walls were almost completely black, and you could start to see it spreading wider and wider. Mold exposure is not only bad for your home, but it is also detrimental to your health. Moldy, damp environments often cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation. They gave us a call at Healthy Spaces and we transformed their basement into a healthy, clean space!
After a free, no-obligation estimate, we were ready to transform this damp den into a safe space. We wanted to ensure that this homeowner's residence would stay healthy and safe for years to come, and this required installing our industry-leading waterproofing products.
First, we put in our SuperSump premier sump pump. It offers an effective and economical solution to your wet basement problems. It comes with an airtight sump lid that keeps odors and humidity out and protects your sump from debris from the basement floor.
Secondly, our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain was installed. This product will channel any water that enters the home into its piping, into the sump pump, then out of the home. It is installed out of the "mud zone," where mud under the floor can potentially clog the perimeter. This way, it won't become blocked like traditional below floor drains would.

The mold and water damage in this basement was so severe, it was overtaking the walls and the flooring.
Almost every corner looked like this one. The black mold was infesting the walls, and water leaking was building up behind the walls and floors.
Here you can see that we have installed WaterGuard and then covered it with concrete. The big difference is that the WaterGuard sits on top of the footing, instead of alongside it. This is important because it keeps the wet dirt from getting into the drain because the drain does not sit in the mud.
Here we've installed the SuperSump. It comes with an airtight sump lid that keeps odors and humidity out and protects your sump from debris from the basement floor.
