Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Leaky Basement in Evansville, IN
A leaky basement can be a hazard for you and your home. A family in Evansville, IN, reached out to us in hopes that we could transform their basement into a healthy environment. Since air flows into the upper levels of your home from the basement, it brings humidity from the basement with it. The effects on your home can include: Smelly damp carpets, buckling hardwood floors mold in your attic, increased heating and cooling bills, and more! A problem the family had along with a damp basement is active mold. Active mold refers to mold that is living and breathing. This kind of mold smells and can cause allergies and health issues, especially in small children and elderly family members. It is important to take action, just as the family had, in preventing a leaky basement from turning into a bigger issue.
To control the flow of water that was entering the basement, a WaterGuard system is placed on the bottom sides of the walls. WaterGuard is engineered to be an efficient, long-lasting interior perimeter basement waterproofing system. CleanSpace is put on the walls of the basement. CleanSpace is a heavy, durable plastic liner that provides a vapor barrier, drains water behind it, and dramatically brightens the basement. Once the basement was protected from any future water entries, the family was able to convert the basement into usable space!
The basement was leaking water, causing mold growth and water to sit on the floor of the basement.
On the right side of the wall, is the WaterGuard system. The Waterguard system is installed and then concrete is poured on top.
