Moist Poland, ME Basement Kept Dry With WaterGuard
A homeowner in Poland was experiencing issues with a flooding basement. This was making the air extremely moist, creating a perfect environment for mold growth. Needing to stop the mold before it spread, the homeowner got online and searched for an answer. This is where he found TC Hafford Basement Systems. We were just what this homeowner needed to help solve his water issue. He called us the next day and we had our representative inspect the basement to give him a free estimate of cost. The homeowner gave us the green light and we got started
First, we needed to dig up the inside perimeter of the basement floor and remove the debris. After this, we were able to lay our WaterGuard system down in this new trench, which was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without hindering functionality. The WaterGuard pipes will catch any water trying to enter the basement through the walls or floor and direct it to the sump. Next, we installed a SmartSump sump pump in the sump of the basement, allowing the collected water to be pumped up and out through a PVC discharge line. Finally, we place a SaniDry CX dehumidifier in the basement to maintain a dry atmosphere. The SaniDry will take in the damp air, dry it out, and push it back into the basement to then dry out more air.
This homeowner now has a basement which will remain free of water and air that is dry and healthy. This eliminates any chance for mold to grow by removing the environment in which it easily spreads.
