Sump Pumps Photo Album: A Nasty, Moldy Basement in Cloverport, KY
In Cloverport, KY, a family was desperate to find a solution to their moldy dilemma. Upon inspection, the basement felt humid and the floors near the basement were damp after a recent rainstorm. The constant occurrence of water mixed with humidity in the air created mold. The basement needed to be waterproofed for the space to be dry.
Small trenches are formed alongside the basement walls for the WaterGuard system to be put in. Concrete is poured on top of the WaterGuard and then smoothed out. As the concrete dries, it will look as though the project never happened! The TripleSafe sump pump is installed to pump water outside and away from the home. CleanSpace is put on the walls to protect the vapor barrier and then direct water to flow down towards the WaterGuard system. It relieved the family to know that their basement was mold-free.
Mold, Water, Oh My!
Water was leaking into the humid basement, causing mold to grow.
Concrete is poured on top of the WaterGuard for a finished look.
TripleSafe sump pump is installed for the basement to continuously pump out water, leaving the space dry!
The WaterGuard is placed on top of the small gravel and will carry any water toward the TripleSafe sump pump.
