A healthy home needs a healthy basement; you can’t have one without the other.
- It is important to understand the risks associated with a wet basement in order to more clearly grasp the potential health risks to your family.
- Uncontrolled water, moisture and humidity can allow nature can take a foothold in your wet basement.
- With a wet basement you get other things in the basement associated with that moisture, bad smells, mold, mildew, insects of all kinds, dry rot, rust and rodents.
- If your wet basement smells bad something is wrong and you need to have it checked out.
- If your basement is damp or floods on occasion your first concern must be in controlling the water that invades it.
A French drain is the best choice for wet basement waterproofing
- The French drain basement waterproofing system is designed to prevent water from flooding your basement.
- It is installed inside the basement, below the floor, around the perimeter.
- This French Drain controls the water, delivers it to the sump pump(s), and discharges it out of the house.
