Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Basement Repair in Dawson Springs, KY
In Dawson Springs KY, a basement had water entering in and creating a possible hazard for the family living there. Due to the water and humidity in the basement, mold was starting to spread on the bottom half of the basement walls. If mold is not taken care of, it can affect someone with asthma and other health problems. The family felt like it was an urgent matter to take care of before it would affect the rest of the house, which was good judgment on their part.To control the water to pump out of the basement rather than in, a sump pump is installed. A water guard is put on the ground on the sides of the walls to allow water that entered the floor to flow toward the sump pump. CleanSpace is arranged on the sides of the basement walls. CleanSpace is tear-resistant and prevents mold growth. With the water being controlled to enter out and not in the basement, the family was pleased to have a dry basement again.
The barrier in the basement was compromised and would allow water and outside air to enter the basement.
