This homeowner was no stranger to water damage. In order to keep his appliances undamaged, he lifted them off the floor!
Water would leak through the cracks of the wall and remain on the footing perimeter. You can see in this image wet stains by the footing of the furnace.
Water weakens water over time, so it was important to waterproof this area to protect the stairs from breaking.
Team Woods cleaned and waterproofed this space to protect this staircase from weakening.
One way the homeowner tried to DIY repair the water leaks was by hanging a fan to dry the area. Of course, this isn't an effective solution to a massive water issue and waterproofing products were essential to protect the area.
As Team Woods investigated the area, the team found that this sump pump wasn't able to handle the amount of water the home was taking in. The team decided to replace the pump with a TripleSafe sump pump that can handle over 60,00 gallons.
The walls revealed years of water damage which transcended into mold and mildew. CleanSpace was later installed on these walls to protect them with a vapor barrier to prevent mold or mildew.
With the help of Team Woods, this home had a huge waterproofing makeover to protect the home from developing any further water damage. In this album, we show the basement before TripleSafe, WaterGuard, and CleanSpace restored it.
